Standing up for Canberra

New CIT campus for Tuggeranong welcomed

Federal Member for Canberra Gai Brodtmann has welcomed a new $10.7 million Canberra Institute of Technology campus, to be opened in Tuggeranong.

The new CIT campus will begin offering courses to students from next year.

“I have been calling for new initiatives in the Tuggeranong town centre for years now and this is absolutely fantastic news,” Ms Brodtmann said.

“Over the last few years the town centre has fallen on hard times, with a number of shops and restaurants closing down and office space remaining vacant.

“A new CIT campus in the town centre will revitalise the heart of Tuggeranong.

“I understand the campus will offer a range of courses, giving Tuggeranong residents greater choice when it comes to further education.

“This is great news for Canberra and Tuggeranong.”
