Horse Park Drive Duplication to Mulligans Flat Road
GCC President - Monday, May 02, 2016

Meegan Fitzharris MLA, Minister for Transport and Municipal Services

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.
