A NEW road link from the Majura Parkway to the Majura Park commercial precinct has been officially opened in time for the Boxing Day sales.
The $7.9 million project delivers 1.3 kilometres of road including a bridge over Woolshed Creek, on-road cycle path and special measures to protect environmentally significant areas of golden sun moth and pink-tailed worm lizard habitat.
Meddhung Road provides direct access to the Majura Park commercial precinct catering for local traffic from the Gungahlin area and North Canberra, and also making it easier for interstate traffic coming from Sydney travelling towards the Snowy Mountains,
The project also included a significant flood levy to protect the heritage-listed Duntroon Woolshed from a major flood event.
It was a happy 10th birthday anniversary celebration last night (November 13) for Majura Cafe Poets as they launched “Poetry On The Menu”, a collection of verse written by a group of poets who gather each week at the Siam Twist in Hackett.
