Barton Highway flyover

The Canberra Liberals have announced plans to construct a flyover at the junction of Barton Highway and the roundabout with William Slim and Gundaroo Drives.

This important junction connects Gungahlin to Civic and intersects with a major interstate highway. The Canberra Liberals’ project plans include two vehicle lanes in each direction and off-road cycle paths.

The Canberra Liberals are determined to improve safety, convenience and travelling times for all people, whether they are pedestrians, cyclists, motorists or public transport users.

Our policies will target all Canberrans, not just the 3 percent who live within walking distance of a proposed Capital Metro light rail stop.

This announcement will make Canberrans lives easier, through better targeted public transport and reduced road congestion.

This solution is superior to the ludicrous Labor plan to install nine sets of traffic lights on this busy intersection. We need separated roads to properly solve the traffic problems at this important intersection.
