Current Projects

Active Travel Tuggeranong Pathways Project

The Tuggeranong Pathways Upgrade project will provide upgraded footpaths, cycleways, kerbs and pedestrian priority crossings within the Tuggeranong Town Centre area. This project will improve on the existing path infrastructure, its connectivity, quality and also complete missing links in the Tuggeranong Town Centre cycle and pedestrian path network. The key construction activities include working around services, relocation of traffic and street lights, demolition of kerbs, public and traffic management. The objective of the works is to increase the amenity and usability of the Town Centre for all users.

Belconnen Way/Springvale Drive Intersection Upgrade

Construction is currently underway at a key Belconnen intersection to improve safety by installing traffic lights with completion expected mid-year.

In addition to traffic lights this project will deliver, new signalised pedestrian crossings, a new zebra crossing and pedestrian island on the left turn lane from Belconnen Way to Springvale Drive, upgraded footpaths and kerb ramps, new on-road cycle lanes on both sides of Belconnen Way at the intersection.

Major construction activities include pavement widening and wearing surface resheeting, stormwater adjustment, removal and replacement of streetlighting, line marking and signage and landscaping, including grassing and shrubs.

 

Sutton Road Upgrade

The Sutton Road Improvements Project will upgrade part of a longstanding problematic stretch of road between Queanbeyan and Sutton. The project includes stormwater upgrades, shoulder widening and full depth pavement reconstruction with cement stabilised heavily bound base followed by a new two coat seal. The project is being staged over 5 months, with the majority of works being done under contraflow conditions.

 

Naas Road Bridge, Tharwa

This project involves the complete dismantling of the existing bridge over Gudgenby River and replacing it with a Two Way lane post tensioned concrete bridge. This project requires the construction of the temporary traffic crossing for local traffic during construction of the new structure. Major key activities for the Naas Road Bridge project also include piling operations, structural concrete, post tensioning and pavement construction.

 

Taylor 2 Floodway

This project includes the shaping of the natural existing creek channel through Taylor 2, Stage 2C. The creek is to be landscaped, protected with rock and stone work and reinforced with key concrete drop structures constructed in the working storm water channel. The connection for pedestrians between Trewenack St and Proudfoot Rise is to be completed with the newly constructed pedestrian crossing. At the southern edge of the works, the existing Elm Grove will house a hard and soft landscaped Nature Play area and Bicycle ‘Pump’ track.

 

Tuggeranong Laneways Upgrade

The Tuggeranong Laneways Upgrade project involves the total removal of the existing paths, garden beds and water features. The Townsquare was then revitalised using architectural features; including custom lighting, mature tree planting, paving and installation of three bespoke design and constructed Shade Structures. Also included in the project was the repurposed lake side terrace and a raised Cowlishaw St road crossing. This project was the final link to complete connection from Southbank shopping precinct to the lakeside in Tuggeranong.

 

Hoover Road Stormwater

The project involves the construction of a new storm water pipeline approximately 480 m long
consisting of twin 900 diameter concrete pipes along Hoover Road. The new pipeline will
match the original hydraulic capacity of the existing similar twin 900 storm water pipeline that
has collapsed within the landfill area.

Construction will also involve the installation of 10 structures being a combination of inspection pits, surface drainage pits and new outlets

The upstream end of the pipeline starts within road reserve at the corner of Alumba Street
and Hoover Road, and travels generally centrally along Hoover Road, terminating at the
western extent of the road before the nature reserve.
