Images from the slide pack that were not seen on the night of the Molonglo Valley Community Forum. Much of this is explained elsewhere on canberra.bike but the images remain informative.
There were two presentations, one from the ACT Government Suburban Land Agency and the second from Capital Estate Developments who are responsible for developing Denman Prospect.
ACT Suburban Land Agency
The ACT Suburban Land Agency works for the ACT Government, Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (EPSDD). The EPSDD gives the marching orders.
Everybody wants to know about this playground in Coombs. The Edgeworth Parade Playspace is about two years in the making and on the third iteration. The Ridgeline Playground has now decided to add toilets. In the last planning iteration for the Edgeworth Parade Playspace, it was decided to take them out. Wisdom shall prevail, eventually.
Three projects are mentioned here, but only the first two are important. The bike path under John Gorton Drive to Evelyn Scott School has been discussed on canberra.bike. Crossing busy roads is always important for vulnerable road users. A bridge to connect the bike path from Civic to Coombs is important and long-awaited. Pleasing, it now appears that it will be finished. The Suburban Land Agency is planning to build it with their own budget rather than leaving for TCCS.
All four stages are shown for Whitlam on this map. Stage 3 is awaiting approval. Stage 4 is for later.
The north side of the Molonglo Valley – known as Molonglo Stage 3 – has only just begun with the construction of the Whitlam estate. It will likely not be completed until 2040.
Capital Estate Developments
The popup playground is noticeable in the parking area on the left. It is only temporary until the local playground is built.
Community Centres are a big thing in the Molonglo as the general onion is there is nowhere near enough.
Denman Prospect is only half finished. Denman North (top) is awaiting approval. The bit in the south will come later. There is another 6-8 years work here.
