Gundaroo Drive currently carries up to 23,000 vehicles a day, providing an important connection for Gungahlin residents travelling to Belconnen and south Canberra.
Roads ACT have identified the duplication of Gundaroo Drive as an upgrade requirement to improve safety, ease increasing congestion in the Gungahlin region, and manage traffic growth.
Stage 2 duplication works involve the construction of a second carriageway on Gundaroo Drive from Gungahlin Drive to the Barton Highway. Duplication of this section of the road will improve safety and relieve congestion in the growing Gungahlin region. On-road cycle lanes will be provided including safe passage around the three roundabouts on this section of road.

Relocation of utilities is now underway, with construction expected to commence in second quarter 2018 and be completed in early 2020.
