Well you can’t say you didn’t ask for it – road resealing for New Years

By johnboy - 20 November 2008 29

Chief Minister Stanhope has announced plans for (nearly) a million square metres of road resealing to take place next year under a $6 million maintenance program.

~$6 a square metre strikes me as a hell of a bargain price.

He’s promising the Northside works will be complete by January, with the crews heading south after that.

Here’s the major road program:

  • Coulter Drive, several sections – December 2008
  • Ginninderra Drive, several sections – December 2008
  • Southern Cross Drive, several sections – December 2008
  • William Hovel Drive, several sections – December 2008
  • Hindmarsh Drive, several sections in Weston Creek – January 2009
  • Lady Denman Drive, Cotter Road to Scrivener Dam – January 2009
  • Drakeford Drive, Summerland Circuit to Athllon Drive – February 2009
  • Canberra Avenue, National Circuit to Manuka Circle – February 2009

What’s Your opinion?

Does that mean the local governments might actually provide a completed bike lane down G’derra drive?! Now that’s a Christmas present…for both cyclists AND the angry motorists out there!

No offence – but you don’t pay road fees on your bicycles so why should you get a lane that will cost approx $1-$2 extra a square metre and be paid for by the registered vehicles?

Suppose xmas is a good time to do it – half of Canberra will be on holidays, and brings more people work over the time that they need it.

By my reading, exactly half of those roads are north of the lake and half are south (traditionally the dividing line between northside and southside, no?).

How do you calculate that, miz?

Lots of Northside, not much Southside. Surprised? no. As usual, a very north-centric decision.

And when is the tunnel going to be built under the Russell Kings ave roundabout? Wasn’t this promised a couple of years ago?

STILL no resealing for the Parkway?

The motorcycle bandits have shown the surface is still quite good.

That’s ‘William Hovell Dr’. Two Ls.

I wonder why they’re not going to do any work on William Slum Dr…
