Cotter Road duplication stage 1

Project background 

Major works to duplicate Cotter Road between the Tuggeranong Parkway and Adelaide Avenue arose due to the 2010 study of the East West Corridor.

As a result of the study, it was recommended that a number of improvements be made to allow the corridor to cope with the predicted increase in traffic, a consequence from the developments in the Molonglo Valley and north Canberra.

Scope of works

The scope of completed between Dunrossil Drive and Yarralumla Creek Bridge included:

  • additional lanes on both the east and west sides of Cotter Road to allow easier turning into Lady Denman Drive, McCulloch Street and Dunrossil Drive
  • bus priority for citybound traffic and cycle lanes
  • replacing the previous three legged roundabout at the Cotter Road and Lady Denman Drive intersection with a signalised T intersection.

The upgrades were completed in October 2013. The installation of a wombat crossing and signage along Cotter Road between McCulloch Street and Carruthers Street took place in December 2013.
