Transport Connections

Major transport connections, including public transport, will link the town centres to Civic, and link future urban settlement in the Molonglo Valley and the Kowen Plateau into major employment corridors; Majura Highway will be upgraded to form part of a critical regional transport link and together with Gungahlin Drive will form the major outer by-passes of Civic, keeping through traffic away from the heart of the city.

SHORT TERM IMPLEMENTATION

  • Public transport priority systems and dedicated public transport routes will be provided at the initial stages of development of new greenfield and major urban renewal sites.
  • Redevelopment of interchange facilities at Woden and Belconnen.

MEDIUM TERM IMPLEMENTATION

  • Detailed structure planning of new greenfields areas will address transport connections, including roads, public transport, walking and cycling to encourage less private car usage.
  • Transport corridors will be provided or upgraded when appropriate to connect urban areas (including connecting the new residential areas in Molonglo Valley and Kowen Plateau) to existing employment and service centres.
  • Installation of trunk cycle and community path network improvements.
  • Changes to parking policies to minimise the use of private motor vehicles for commuting.
  • Dedicated trunk public transport routes constructed between Gungahlin and Civic, and Belconnen and Civic.

LONG TERM IMPLEMENTATION

  • Introduction of new bus priority measures.
  • Development of high quality transit stations along trunk public transport routes and integrated into the town centres.
