New suburb of Moncrieff underway

By 7 May 2014 9

Work on the new Gungahlin suburb of Moncrieff is set to begin later this year, according to an article in the Canberra Times.

Located in North Gungahlin, bordered by Ngunnawal and Amaroo, Moncrieff will accommodate about 5000 residents.

The suburb will also contain a shopping area or group centre to service the area. Over half of the suburb will be retained as open space.

Moncrieff will provide about 2,125 dwelling sites and contain a mix of residential, medium and higher density multi-unit developments, community facility sites, commercial zones and a group centre.

500 dwelling sites will be released by a ballot for registered builders in June.

Further information is available from the LDA website.

The ACT Govenment should not commence developing the suburb until they fix the transport and road infrastructure in the area first as it already struggles to cope with the existing traffic as there has not been any proper planning of these arrangements. It will create more chaos if they don’t duplicate Gundaroo Dr/William Slim Dr and Horse Park Dr. But I won’t be surprised if they don’t, because they couldn’t plan their way out of a brown paper bag.

I doubt it, but I hope Horse Park from Amaroo/Jacka through to Casey is dual lanes.

Unfortunately the way Horse Park is built from Amaroo/Bonner through to the highway doesn’t seem to have the ability to be a dual lane road.

I can confirm that just getting out of Gungahlin in the mornings can ruin your whole day.

The best part is that driving from Queanbeyan to Belconnen is now quicker than Gungalin to Belconnen. Keep building up north LDA, just stack them in up to the border!!

Not as much as realizing that at the end of the day you have to go home…to Gungahlin :)

Light rail will fix all of this.

Good to see some humorous comment about the impending light rail folly.

Queanbeyan to most of Canberra takes less time than most people think. I can drive from Jerra to the city most mornings in about 15 mins up the Monaro.

However it takes years to convince people to goto Queanbeyan and then they come straight back.
