Ginninderra Drive – road to nowhere

By nobody 1 June 2011 24

Ginninderra Drive begins in Dunlop and travels East for 6.5km until it stops just 500m before it would reach Northbourne Avenue. Most major roads continue until they intersect with another major road, but this road just meanders into Mouat Street.

I used to assume it was to be extended that last 500m when the traffic increased, or when the land became available, or when the funds where found, but it appears it will always just stop a little short. Does anyone know why this was left as a road to nowhere?

What’s Your opinion?

Ginninderra Drive is only 6.5km long?!

Did the real estate agent tell you it would only take 15 minutes to commute to Civic too?

I’d say it would be close enough to double that, so Maybe 12-13km? Definatly no less than 10!

Google Maps says 12.1 km

There were plans to “fix” Kuringa Drive that went right through to survey pegs being driven, but ground was never broken.

The current extension of Claire Hermes Drive almost demands further upgrades to Kuringa (especially the intersections with Owen Dixon and Kingsford Smith), however I have no doubt our incompetent road planning/funding system will ensure that it will take a fatality or two before significant improvements are made.

Considering the accidents and deaths on that road, you would think the road planning/funding system would have it at a higher priority …. or maybe they are just waiting for the next fatality

Put in a speed camera. Everyone wins, haha!
