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.
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 will have a 1.5m and 2.5m off road path to cater for pedestrians and cyclists and a pedestrian refuge crossing to service Uriarra Track. This new road is planned to be operational prior to the Canberra Brickworks development commencing. The access road will be used only to enter and exit the new Canberra Brickworks development precinct and will not be a through road.
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:
The Department of the Environment and Energy have made a decision on the EPBC referral (EPBC number 2017/8072). The decision notice details are available on the Department of the Environment and Energy website.
