Territory and Municipal Services have released what they’re going to do with $42 million from the Federales as a Centenary gift.
In celebration of the Centenary of Canberra in 2013, the Australian Government has gifted $42 million to the ACT Government for the upgrade of Constitution Avenue. The upgrade project will deliver major transport infrastructure improvements along the road corridor including:
— a dedicated bus lane in each direction;
— a separated cycle path;
— wider footpaths; and
— a new central median planted with trees.
The upgrade of Constitution Avenue will provide the necessary infrastructure to support future development in the area. As commercial and residential development is progressed along Constitution Avenue the public realm spaces will be upgraded to achieve the visionary design for 2031.
There’s a fact sheet available with all the spiffy archictect’s drawings we know and love.
