Gundaroo Drive bike path now open

The duplication of Gundaroo Drive has been finished for a while now. The bike path, part of the CBR Cycle Route C7, has taken longer to finish but it is now open, too. It is not a new path, as the old one was destroyed by the road widening work. This also happened with the Flemington Road path.

“The 2.5-kilometre duplication of Gundaroo Drive between Gungahlin Drive and the Barton Highway is complete, two years after it started construction.”

Gundaroo Drive duplication complete removes one more bottleneck, Dominic Giannini, The RiotACT, 25 June 2020

The CBR Cycle Route C7 was mentioned in the last post. Bike paths are often placed in close proximity to the road. Widening the road inevitably results in the destruction of the bike path. $30 million and two years later, we now have the same length of bike path as previously. And what a beautiful path it is!
