Gundaroo Drive currently carries up to 23,000 vehicles a day, providing an important connection for Gungahlin residents travelling to Belconnen and south Canberra.
Roads ACT have identified the duplication of Gundaroo Drive as an upgrade requirement to improve safety, ease increasing congestion in the Gungahlin region, and manage traffic growth.
Stage 2 duplication works involve the construction of a second carriageway on Gundaroo Drive from Gungahlin Drive to the Barton Highway. Duplication of this section of the road will improve safety and relieve congestion in the growing Gungahlin region. On-road cycle lanes will be provided including safe passage around the three roundabouts on this section of road.

Relocation of utilities is underway between Nudurr Drive and Gungahlin Drive, and road construction activities are underway between Nudurr Drive and the Barton Highway. Works are scheduled for completion in early 2020.
As at the end of July 2018, utility relocation works between Nudurr Drive and Gungahlin Drive are ongoing. Road construction works between Nudurr Drive and the Barton Highway have commenced with clearing complete and earthworks and stormwater construction in progress. Bridge construction between Nudurr Drive and Abena Avenue is progressing well with installation of foundations complete. Demolition of part of the existing bridge will commence shortly and deck construction will follow.
