The ACT Government is constructing the Canberra Brickworks access road and upgrade of Dudley Street in Yarralumla to keep our city moving as our city grows.
Dudley Street upgrade
Dudley Street, Yarralumla is a busy road in the Territory that currently experiences high traffic volumes, particularly during morning and afternoon peak hours. The road was not constructed with the intention of carrying the volume of traffic it does now, as such it no longer meets current design standards and needs upgrading.
The upgrade works will include:
Canberra Brickworks access road
As part of the upgrade works a new access road into the Canberra Brickworks development precinct will be constructed. This will connect to a roundabout on Dudley Street towards the Cotter Street end of the road. The new access road is planned to be operational prior to the Canberra Brickworks development commencing. This access road will be used only to enter and exit the new Canberra Brickworks development precinct and will not be a through road.
Display of Final Preliminary Documentation – EPBC Act
The proposed action was referred to the Commonwealth Department of the Environment and Energy to determine whether assessment and approval under the EPBC Act was required. On 1 December 2017, the proposed action was determined to be a controlled action, subject to assessment by Preliminary Documentation. The controlling provision is listed threatened species and communities (sections 18 & 18A) of the EPBC Act.
On 13 September 2018, the draft Preliminary Documentation was placed on display and comments were invited until 4 October 2018 (15 business days). During this period, twelve public submissions were received. A document summarising and responding to the comments was then prepared and the Preliminary Documentation finalised. The final Preliminary Documentation is provided below for information only.
