Lanyon Drive to get upgraded

By johnboy - 21 March 2007 23

John Hargreaves has announced that Tuggeranong is going to get more gutters to fit the thronging masses wanting to join Brendan Smyth down there.

the design of the Lanyon Drive upgrade is currently underway and ultimately will cover the duplication of Lanyon Drive from Monaro Highway to Tompsitt Drive in NSW, with intersection improvements included at Monaro Highway and Sheppard Street.

Interestingly NSW have chipped in $8 million to the $20 million dollar project. Are there any other roads our Queanbos would like looking at?

What’s Your opinion?

The Kings Hwy runs for a fairly significant distance through the oft forgotten north easter arm of the ACT anyway. And Lanyon drive in the NSW is a dual carriageway, it only becomes a bottleneck when it crosses the border.

How about fixing up the airport/russell nightmare?

well thats not really true.

the federal govt gives the act a greater disbursement of gst money to account for the services nsw residents receive from the act.

id also like to see tollgates on the qbn/act border.

actually the NSW Government already “kicks in” money to the ACT for health and education services.

“Hmmm, I think the ACT should also throw a few million into upgrading the Kings Highway.”

Great idea Kimba…just as soon as Qbn & Jerra residents kick in for ACT hospitals, schools, roads, etc…This idea of seperate states is a crock.

This doesn’t have much at all to do with Tuggeranong. This is all about Jerrabomberra.

Incidentally, when did that road get renamed from Tharwa Rd to Lanyon Dr?

CAF it changed name years ago when Tharwa road terminated on the road that goes from Lanyon drive to the back of Karabah.

And Louise election bribe for which election. The current NSW one or ACT? The NSW one then yeah would agree, but more so on the timing of the annoucment not the construction. If the ACT then no one would give a rats about it. That road is more for the benifit of Jerra residents, so NSW putting in $8m is more than fair, maybe a bit less than fair. Interestingly who owns the bridge over the railway line. ACT or NSW.

that intersection regularly has very nasty accidents, It’s a good move but I’m shocked at the price tag. Can’t buy much for $20 mil these days it seems…

Yeah but it will be quicker for QBN people to get to the new jail…

Duplication of Lanyon drive is a great idea, but the real bottleneck is not the road itself, but the entry to the Monaro highway. I think that they would be better off improving that intersection (eg make the entry slip lane to the Monaro heading north a couple of km long), than duplicating the road itself.

Hmmm, I think the ACT should also throw a few million into upgrading the Kings Highway. ACT drivers use it the most and whinge about it the most as well.

There already *are* traffic lights at that intersection. And yeah, I don’t see what it’s got to do with Tuggers especially, any more than Woden anyway. (It’s the road from Hume to Queanbeyan, the one that goes past Jerrabomberra – it’s already dual-carriageway etc on the NSW side of the border).

Incidentally, when did that road get renamed from Tharwa Rd to Lanyon Dr?

What’s this got to do with Tuggeranong?

The clue isintersection improvements included at Monaro Highway and Sheppard Street. Read another set of traffic lights on the Monaro to clog things up.

Interesting timing:
These works are scheduled to commence in November 2007 and are due to be completed by August 2008.

Smells of an election bribe to me.
