Morisset Road extension

Project description

Design will commence shortly to upgrade Morisset Road to complete the orbital freight network and to support future land development in the area. Morisset Road is currently 0.75 kilometres long and built to rural road standards. The Sullivans Creek crossing also floods during high rainfall events. The detail design will include upgrading the existing road to meet current design standards, extending it by 1.25 kilometres to the Antill Street/Federal Highway intersection and providing stormwater infrastructure on Sullivan’s Creek to reduce flooding incidents.

In providing a link directly to the Federal Highway along Morisset Road, heavy vehicle traffic would be diverted away from Flemington Road improving safety for all road users and providing opportunities for active travel infrastructure, including the provision of paths for pedestrians and cyclists directly to the future light rail stop in Mitchell.

Funding Value: $1.4 million for design and approvals provided over two years in the 2019-20 ACT Budget.
