Duplication of Coppins Crossing Road begins

Work to duplicate Coppins Crossing Road between John Gorton Drive and William Hovell Drive has begun with construction of the first 900 metres of road now well under way.

The first stage of the duplication will include an upgrade of the intersection with William Hovell Drive which will be signalised.

The ACT Government said it is investigating options for the remaining duplication of John Gorton Drive which will include a bridge across the Molonglo River.

The newly duplicated section of road is to be renamed to become the northern end of John Gorton Drive.

Along with the duplication of Cotter Road, which is also well underway, this duplication will eventually provide Molonglo Valley residents with a dual carriageway from William Hovell Drive through to Adelaide Avenue.
