Ginninderry

We have done detailed studies to assess the impact Ginninderry will have on roads and traffic in the surrounding areas. As a result, we will be upgrading a number of roads both in the early stages of the project and as it develops. In addition, Ginninderry is being planned so that residents have good public transport options and there is less reliance on driving cars. We’re looking to promote active transport with initiatives that benefit cyclists and pedestrians.

The approach that has been taken to transport planning at Ginninderry has been to ensure that the layout of roads, paths and off-road corridors is optimised for pedestrians, bikes and buses with simple and direct routes for those riders. And whilst the needs of cars do not dominate the road planning at the expense of other modes, cars are nevertheless a vital part of the transport mix and substantial roadworks will ensure smooth and efficient traffic flows, hopefully with an increasing proportion of electric cars.

 

The key roads that will serve Ginninderry are Drake Brockman Drive, Southern Cross Drive, and Ginninderra Drive. William Hovell Drive and Florey Drive are also important. As a result of studies conducted during the planning stages of Ginninderry, we will be upgrading a number of roads, commencing in the first few years with Drake Brockman Drive. We’re proposing that Ginninderra Drive should eventually be extended into the Ginninderry project area. This will ensure better access to Charnwood and beyond to east Belconnen, Gungahlin and Civic.

Ginninderry is being planned so that residents have good public transport options and there is less reliance on driving cars. We are planning to have (at least peak hour) bus services from the start of Stage 1 of the project to make sure our first residents have immediate access to public transport. By the third year of the project, we expect a regular ACTION bus service to be running
