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 underway between Nudurr Drive and Gungahlin Drive, and road construction activities are underway between Nudurr Drive and the Barton Highway. Works are scheduled for completion in early 2020.
Utility relocation works between Nudurr Drive and Gungahlin Drive are ongoing with drilling and pipe laying underway and completion expected in the coming months. Following completion of the gas main reloation, road construction works will commence in this section. Bridge works between Abena Avenue and Nudurr Drive are continuing with installation of the foundations and demolition of part of the existing structure complete. Deck construction will soon get underway, connecting the new structure to the existing one.

Note there are numerous projects on arterial and major roads in Gungahlin that are scheduled to be under construction at the same time and the ACT Government would like the thank motorists for their patience while these important works are undertaken.
