Coppins Crossing Road duplication works underway

Posted On July 10, 2017

Work has started on the duplication of 900 metres of the Coppins Crossing Road south from William Hovell Drive towards the Molonglo Valley.

The $33 million project, which also includes a new 600mm water main, is the first stage of an infrastructure package to accommodate future land releases in Molonglo Stage 3.

Minister for Transport and City Services Meegan Fitzharris said the newly duplicated section of road, which would service the current and future needs of the fast growing region, would be renamed to become the northern end of John Gorton Drive.

“Molonglo Valley is a key growth area for the ACT and the government is building infrastructure now to ensure the necessary roads and services are in place to accommodate the thousands of people who will call this region home,” Minister Fitzharris said.

“Coombs and Wright, while already well established, are still growing, with their final stages set for release in the coming years. Likewise Denman Prospect will also be adding further stages in the near future and the first releases in Whitlam are scheduled for 2018/19.

“It is important that these growing populations have the necessary transport infrastructure in place.”

The road works will include an upgrade to the intersection with William Hovell Drive.  The project also includes starting construction of a 600mm water main to service Molonglo stage three.

The Government is also investigating procurement and delivery options for the remaining section of John Gorton Drive including a bridge across the Molonglo River. This study is investigating the best value for money options for the delivery of this significant and final section of transport infrastructure which will complete the north / south arterial road network in the Molonglo Valley.

“Along with the duplication of Cotter Road, which is well underway, this work goes a long way to providing current and future residents of Molonglo with dual carriageway road from William Hovell Drive through to Adelaide Avenue,” Minister Fitzharris said.
