The ACT Government is constructing the Canberra Brickworks access road and upgrade of Dudley Street in Yarralumla to keep our city moving as our city grows.
Dudley Street upgrade
Dudley Street, Yarralumla is a busy road in the Territory that currently experiences high traffic volumes, particularly during morning and afternoon peak hours. The road was not constructed with the intention of carrying the volume of traffic it does now, as such it no longer meets current design standards and needs upgrading.
The upgrade works will include:
Canberra Brickworks access road
As part of the upgrade works a new access road into the Canberra Brickworks development precinct will be constructed. This will connect to a roundabout on Dudley Street towards the Cotter Street end of the road. The new access road is planned to be operational prior to the Canberra Brickworks development commencing. This access road will be used only to enter and exit the new Canberra Brickworks development precinct and will not be a through road.
If you have any enquiries related to the above works, you can contact the project team via email at Yarralumla.Roads@act.gov.au.

Invitation for Public Comment
The proposed upgrades were referred to the Commonwealth Department of the Environment and Energy to determine whether assessment and approval under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) was required. On 1 December 2017, the proposed upgrades were determined to be a controlled action. The controlling provision is listed threatened species and communities (sections 18 & 18A) of the EPBC Act.
As per Section 95A(3) of the EPBC Act, the proposed upgrades are now subject to assessment by Preliminary Documentation. Below are the links to the Preliminary Documentation:
