The plan to duplicate William Hovell Drive is known. The development application was released recently. The project includes 4.5 km of off-road share path.
Nobody likes power lines – really nobody – but everybody likes the convenience that electricity provides. The power line across Molonglo 3 East will be buried along William Hovell Drive in preparation of the estate’s construction.
Molonglo has only 5000 residents currently and the traffic chaos might lead us to think it cannot get much worse. Molonglo is at the beginning of a rapid growth spurt and for the next decade the congestion will grow rapidly.
This is the first of a series of articles on ACT building codes. The character and liveability of our city is a product of these codes. Here is a brief introduction to Estate Development Code and why it needs to be revised.
Molonglo 3 East is in an early stage of planning and the significance easily missed driving by. In the Planning Design Framework the ACT Government outlines what it does and does not want, however, the intention is to leave plenty of space for good urban planning.
The design of the East Gungahlin High School in the new suburb of Kenny has been turned on its head as a result of the project being fast tracked in response to COVID-19.
This article is a chronological list of the Molonglo Valley Stage 3 development stages and contains the key documents to download. It is mostly for reference purposes.
The Molonglo Valley is not flat and that is well known but it does cause problems. In Molonglo 3, on the north of the river, the gradients can be a challenge.
Gradients are hard to guess. We do not have an eye for it. Riding a bike, we notice when it gets too steep, however, it is hard to say how steep that is. That is what the gradient measures.
The problem remains: we continue to build cycle paths that are not suitable for the average cyclist (Austroads recommendations).
