I’ve written up an article on the GDE, and why the 80 km/h speed limit along much of the road from Mitchell to the Glenloch Interchange arguably does not comply with AS 1742.4 2.1.2(b). Read on below if interested.
“The extension to Gungahlin Drive (The Gungahlin Drive Extension, or GDE) has recently been completed. [...]
The hawk-like Alistair Coe has plunged upon a tweet by Simon Corbell boasting that the mid October finish date for the Gungahlin Drive Extension will be two and a half months ahead of schedule.

Chief Minister Jon Stanhope and the Minister for Municipal Services John Hargreaves have just announced that the duplication of Gungahlin Drive is to start immediately.
