Gundaroo Drive duplication stage 2

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.

To find out more about the project’s key features and improvements watch a 3D flyover of the project below.

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

Upcoming works

As at the end of May 2018, relocation of utilities is underway between Nudurr Drive and the Gungahlin Lakes Golf Club. Road construction, including service locations and preparation for installation of foundations for the new bridge between Abena Avenue and Nudurr Drive has also commenced.

In the coming weeks site compound set up, clearing of trees, earthworks and stormwater installation will all commence.

Traffic Impacts

  • The speed limit has been reduced between the Barton Highway and Gungahlin Drive to 60km/h to ensure the safety of construction workers.
  • There will be short duration (5-10 minute) lane closures outside of peak hours in the coming month to allow for installation of traffic barriers and to ensure the tree removals are safely conducted. Traffic controllers will be present to guide traffic and manage queuing to minimise delays.

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.

A drop in information session will be held on Thursday 5 July in Training Room 1 at Gungahlin Library from 4.45 - 6.15 pm. Members of the project team will be available to provide updates and information on the project. If you are unable to make this session project related enquiries can be directed to Access Canberra on 13 22 81.
