Whitlam: another stage opens

Playground, Whitlam, Molonglo Valley, ACT.

Bit by bit, the fences are being taken down in Whitlam. The construction of the next stage is slow.

All the paved streets in Whitlam are now open in anticipation of a wave of house construction this year. The playgrounds are open too with the landscaping being finalised.

Whitlam is not connected to anything yet. This is unlikely to change before William Hovell Drive duplication and John Gorton Drive Bridge is completed in 2025. The blue lines are indicative of where one could ride.

A concrete path runs beside Sculthorpe Avenue below the roundabout and is suitable for cycling as it is quite wide. Path concrete paths in the side streets are often only 1.5 m wide.

All local roads have narrow concrete paths but there are no dedicated bike paths in the suburb as of yet. Whitlam: open on the 16 March 2021. Map: CyclOSM. Data OpenStreetMap contributors.
