The 34th annual Summernats festival due to be held in January has been called off due to Coronavirus and restrictions on gatherings.

That means the next festival won't be held until January 2022.

The event is a major tourism drawcard for the ACT attracting about 100,000 visitors and 2000 cars.

ACT Health is also using exhibition park as a COVID testing facility meaning organisers can't confirm if the venue will be available.

ln police

The Canberra Liberals have announced their plan for Canberra's south, which they say will save the average family $1500 dollars on their rates bill annually, and also deliver better services.

The party has remained tight-lipped on how they'll pay for their spending splurge outside of growing the Territory's revenue pie, which Chief Minister Andrew Barr has described as irresponsible.

Included in today's promises are upgrades to Phillip Oval, a new police station and fire and ambulance station for Molonglo, more after-hours GPs in Weston Creek, and upgrades to local shops at Chifley, Pearce, Torrens, Duffy, Fisher and Chapman.
