Located in Canberra's south, Ashley Drive provides an important link between Johnson Drive in Richardson and Sternberg Crescent in Wanniassa. Due to historical growth, traffic volumes are now in excess of 20,000 vehicles per day and significant queuing and delays are currently being experienced by drivers at key intersections during the morning and afternoon peak periods.
