At the Public meeting held on 26 March, Roads ACT outlined the proposal to upgrade the Cotter Road from Yarralumla Creek to the Tuggeranong Parkway. This proposal is going to Government for funding for the 2015/16 Financial Year. It is a 1.7km duplication which will involve a second bridge over Yarralumla Creek. More information can be seen from the attached slide.
Council is very supportive of the finalisation of the duplication of the Cotter Road given the expected growth in traffic on the Cotter Road from the increasing population in Wright, Coombs, North Weston and the Defence Housing development in Weston over the next couple of years. This should complete the major roadworks in the Weston Creek District following the opening up of the Molonglo District.
