ANDREW Barr and Meegan Fitzharris say the ACT Government will complete the full duplication of Cotter Road in the 2016/17 ACT Budget.
“This project has been part of the Government’s forward planning on transport infrastructure upgrades, having been designed and costed in previous budgets,” Andrew said.
“The Government has already completed a number of major upgrades to the Road, including the signalisation of the Lady Denman Drive and Cotter Road intersection.
“The ACT Budget will commit $28.9m to the project in 2016/17 and over the forward estimates, with the aim to complete the project in 2018/19.
“The ACT Government is committed to supporting the growth of the Molonglo Valley and Weston Creek, and this important piece of road infrastructure will help service the thousands of new residents expected in the area over the coming decade. It will improve travel times for motorists, buses and cyclists.”
Minister for Transport and Municipal Services Meegan Fitzharris said Cotter Road is an important road connecting the growing Weston Creek and Molonglo Valley region to the rest of our beautiful city.
