MLA, Minister for Transport and
Horse Park Drive is one of the main arterial roads in
Gungahlin. As our region grows, more and more people are using this road every
day, which links our suburbs to the city and the Majura Parkway.
Work has already started on the duplication of Horse Park
Drive between Anthony Rolfe Avenue and Well Station Drive. Since this work
started, many people have asked when the rest of Horse Park Drive will be
duplicated. I have said that as your local MLA and now Minister for Transport
and Municipal Services this is my Number 1 priority.
I am very pleased to let you know that we will be
upgrading all of Horse Park Drive from the Federal Highway to Mulligans Flat
Road, and this work will be funded in this year’s ACT Budget!
As a Gungahlin resident, and since January 2015 your local
Gungahlin MLA, I have spoken with many people about Gungahlin’s roads. Like
you, I know they need upgrading.
I advocated strongly for the duplication of Gundaroo Drive
in my first weeks in the Assembly and that work is now underway. And now Horse
Park Drive will be fully duplicated.
I’m pleased to say that we will begin consultation
immediately on the design of that work so that construction can get underway
later in the year. You will receive further information soon, so please keep an
eye out for our regular Gungahlin roads updates.
Finally, thank you for your patience during the current road
works around our region. I will continue working hard to make sure our road and
transport network works for our community.
