Zed to duplicate Athllon Drive

Has Zed seen a road he didn’t want to duplicate?

ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja and ACT Shadow Transport Services Minister Alistair Coe announced today that if elected, the Canberra Liberals will duplicate Athllon Drive between Sulwood Drive and Drakeford Drive. Mr Seselja said Tuggeranong has been severely neglected by the ACT Labor Government and this is one part of the Canberra Liberals’ overall plan to rejuvenate the area.

“Duplicating Athllon Drive is part of our $700 million plan to fix Canberra’s roads and comes on top of our promise to duplicate Horse Park Drive for Gungahlin residents,” Mr Seselja said.

“This is basic planning and it’s something that Canberrans expect from their local government.

Just clarifying for all those who read something weird in my previous question. I only wanted to know the guys real name. Didn’t make any derogatory comments or otherwise. Just found it odd a person would use a nickname in an election campaign.

Bit off topic but surely Zed is a nick-name and not a real name?

Are you from Cronulla? That would explain this question!

No. And what do you mean by that?

Zdenko is of Croatian descent.

I knew that – I just didn’t know what his real name was.

There has to be something better to spend our money on. Is this pork-barreling to match the Horse Park promise? I’d rather see something done about Sternberg and Ashley for example.

Ashley needs it much more than Athllon! I’ve lived around both for ages. While they are at it, do the 100m stretch between Sternberg and Ashley that desperately needs it.

Yay! More road works on many of the trips that I have to make to get to work, childcare & around town. Quite frankly I’ve just about had it with roadworks. What with the airport stuff (now finished obviously), Monaro Highway (now thankfully done), Majura Road, Anzac Parade, Edinburgh Avenue – all on my trip to work.childcare and all under some kind of construction – I’m road-worked out for a good while.

If the Libs get in we’ll get to see their prowess in the road building department. I bet they aren’t any better than the other mob.

So you would rather sit around in traffic while traffic inches forward as you get stuck in various bottle necks for the next 10 years than be slightly inconvenienced for 6 months while they work to improve the road? I don’t see the logic..

So will they keep the point to point on that road as well?

Duplicate to speed things up.
Point to Point to slow things down again.

What Point to Point ???

It’s about time, long overdue and ridiculous omission given it’s duplicated at both ends.

Fine, get off the roads then. Catch the bus.

If they did it properly the roadworks shouldn’t be too intrusive. Although the intersection without a roundabout may need one.
I remember when Athllon drive didn’t exist there. I’m thinking early 80’s i was a kid in Wanniassa.

How do you propose they do it without “roadworks”?
