Horse Park Drive duplication works
Work on the duplication of Horse Park Drive, Gungahlin (between Anthony Rolfe Avenue and Mulligans Flat Road) will take advantage of reduced school holiday traffic near Mulligans Flat Road to undertake important work along the road verge and footpaths.
Work will commence on 5 July 2017 and be completed on 15 July 2017 (weather permitting) to relocate underground cables to a new trench alongside the existing footpaths.
Speed limits in the vicinity of these roadworks will be reduced to 40 km/h during construction periods and the footpath partially fenced off to provide a safe working environment for construction.
Construction works will be undertaken outside of peak hour traffic periods to maximise traffic flows during these periods.
Footpaths will continue to remain open throughout construction, although outside peak hours footpaths will be narrower than usual to accommodate the safe work zone.
It is anticipated that these works will be completed by 15 July 2017 in time for the return of students to nearby schools.
Construction of the Horse Park Drive duplication between Anthony Rolfe Avenue and Mulligans Flat Road is expected to be completed late in 2018 and includes new traffic lights at Francis Forde Boulevard, Katherine Avenue south and Mulligans Flat Road.
