Work to start soon on Gundaroo Drive Duplication
Work will soon be underway on the duplication of Gundaroo Drive from Gungahlin Drive to Mirrabei Drive/Anthony Rolfe Avenue in Gungahlin.
The works will improve safety and relieve congestion in the growing Gungahlin region. Preparatory works have already begun and residents should see visible road works next month.
The upgrade works will include on-road cycle lanes to provide safe passage for cyclists. A new signalised pedestrian crossing is also being installed midway along Gundaroo Drive between Gungahlin Drive and Mirrabei Drive.
The works will also include funding to relocate the high pressure gas main on the north side of Gundaroo Drive between Nudurr Drive and Gungahlin Drive. This is in preparation for the future duplication of this next section of Gundaroo Drive.
Lane closures will be required during the works however they will be planned for outside the usual peak period. Reduced speed limits will be in operation to ensure safety for workers and for the travelling public, and diversions will also be in place for cyclists.
Several important road upgrade projects are already underway in Gungahlin including construction of the additional southbound lane on Gungahlin Drive from north of Sandford Street through to the Barton Highway the upgrade of the Gundaroo Drive and Barton Highway roundabout, and the first stage of the duplication of Horse Park Drive.
Gungahlin residents will be kept up-to-date throughout construction with electronic road signage, website information, social media posts and letterbox drops.
