Chief Minister Stanhope has announced that Kenoss Contractors will be starting work next month building the roads for the new conurbation of Molonglo:
The ACT Government is moving forward with the development of the Molonglo Valley with work starting in August on stage two of John Gorton Drive – the main arterial road connecting the new suburbs of Wright and Coombs…
“The works include the construction of 1.3 kilometres of road, bus lanes in each direction and cycle lanes,” Mr Stanhope said. “It is part of a $55 million investment by the ACT Government for new roads and infrastructure in the Molonglo Valley, which will eventually be home to about 55,000 Canberrans.”
The road will be constructed from the new T-intersection on Cotter Road to an interim connection with Uriarra Road.
