Majura Parkway kicked off

By johnboy - 4 June 2009 43

TAMS have launched a glossy website to sell you on the merits of the new Majura Parkway.

From the blurb:

    The Majura Parkway is an exciting new road development that will seamlessly connect the Federal Highway to the Monaro Highway.

    Some the benefits of this road project are:

    — Relieving traffic congestion and provide better access to the Majura Valley.
    — Enabling the better movement of traffic from the north to the southside of Canberra.
    — Providing other benefits like better fuel consumption and reduce greenhouse gases.

So there you go.

What’s Your opinion?

Does anyone know about the status of the proposed Monash Drive?

Monash Dr is still on the Territory Plan, and therefore still could be built. The Greens tried to get it removed once and for all not so long ago, but I believe to no avail. By the same token, there’s no plans afoot to actually build it – it’s basically just on the plan so that if they do decide they need it, the residents can’t say they weren’t warned. Not that that will stop them complaining for even a second.

Heaven forbid should our two wheeled friends be inconvenienced. Where the trails cross over the new roading I am sure they will be painted green so we can all share in this ‘Parkway’

They totally glossed over the impact on Majura Pines. They are going to destroy the lower section of Majura Pines, which will wipe out a large number of nationally recognised mountain bike trails.

I believe Monash Dr was stillborn due to environmental issues.

Does anyone know about the status of the proposed Monash Drive? This is drawn on maps and is supposed to run behind Ainslie and Hackett. It will effectively cut off Mts Ainslie and Majura from suburbia, and also remove an important “nature corridor” going the other way.

Just my .02, but having north going east? Is really annoying.

majura road does this already. are they going to duplicate it?

It mentions on the site that majura road will be retained as an access road to local properties etc

I was being slightly sarcastic a la the GDE only being single lane. Since this is a upgrade to an existing road, I would hope that it at least duplicates it.

Being able to get past the airport with out having to go through any traffic lights would be of more use to anyone trying to get from the Federal highway to the Monaro though

really? I did not notice…

I assume that they will be building it single lane and duplicating it later?

The Frequently Asked Questions page is empty.

Guessing the opposition haven’t heard about the plan to build the road in stages yet, then.

This was the *only* project of the ones that Infrastructure Australia recognised as “shovel ready” to be left out of funding in the Federal Budget. Reckon we’ve been hard done by there.
