Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 14 Hansard (Thursday, 8 December 2011) . . Page.. 6038 ..


(2) The modelling work that was undertaken considered more uptake of public transport in the medium and long terms. The modelling took into account the public transport corridors in the network and the overall transport strategy. The Majura Parkway’s predominant roles are to provide peripheral (ring road) options for the traffic to take traffic away from key public transport spines such as Northbourne Avenue and provide an alternative route for freight movement. The configurations that were modelled reflect Majura Parkway’s intended roles.

(3) The Majura Parkway can form part of the peak express routes that service directly from Gungahlin to Fairbairn/ Majura/ Brindabella Parks.

(4) In the near term:

a. Canberra Airport and Majura Park: peak express routes will be planned for commuters to provide fast services.

b. Fyshwick: Red Rapid transit services will provide 15 minutes or better frequent services, throughout the day, from Gungahlin to Fyshwick. The travel time will be minimised by constructing a bus lane on Canberra Avenue and Flemington Road.

c. Hume: assess the potential public transport demand and consider in the Network 13 planning.

d. Campbell: coordinated services with the Red Rapid linking Russell.

In the longer term:

a. Canberra Airport and Majura Park: peak express routes with direct and fast services. Additional frequent services (15 minute) from City coordinated with segregated, rapid and frequent public transport between Gungahlin to City may be considered.

b. Fyshwick: Red Rapid transit services will provide 15 minutes or better frequent and rapid services, throughout the day, from Gungahlin to Fyshwick. The travel time will be minimised by constructing segregated public transport on Flemington Road, Northbourne Avenue and Canberra Avenue.

c. Hume: assess the potential public transport demand and consider future peak express route planning.

d. Campbell: Coordinated services with the Red Rapid linking Russell, with segregated rapid and frequent public transport.
