Horse Park Drive Upgrades

The full duplication of Horse Park Drive between Mulligans Flat Road and the Federal Highway will improve traffic flow, increase traffic capacity, improve safety and provide better access to nearby suburbs, including Harrison, Gungahlin and the new suburb of Throsby.

Upgrade features

  • Two lanes in each direction between Mulligans Flat Road and the Federal Highway
  • Intersection improvements at Anthony Rolfe Avenue, Mapleton Avenue, Well Station Drive, Mirrabei Drive and Gaston Way
    • new traffic lights at Mapleton Avenue, Francis Forde Boulevard, Katherine
      Avenue and Mulligans Flat Road
    • new turn lanes
    • improved pedestrian facilities
  • A shared path for cyclists and pedestrians
  • A new bridge with underpass for pedestrians and cyclists at Gungaderra Creek
  • Indented bus stops adjacent to the north and southbound carriageways.

Well Station Drive to Anthony Rolfe Avenue

The upgrade of Horse Park Drive between Well Station Drive and Anthony Rolfe Avenue opened to traffic  on 7 June 2017. The new duplicated section of road, which includes two lanes in each direction, will improve traffic flow and safety.

Duplication between Anthony Rolfe Avenue and Mulligans Flat Road started in April 2017 and is progressing well. To help maintain safety for road users and construction workers, traffic speeds will reduce during construction. Impacts on the pedestrian underpasses will be staggered for safe access under Horse Park Drive. This work is expected to finish late 2018.

The Horse Park Drive upgrade coincides with the work on Throsby, which started in October 2015, and other projects in Gungahlin (including extensions of The Valley Avenue and Manning Clark Crescent),  and upgrades to intersections on the Barton Highway, Gundaroo Drive and William Slim Drive.
