(currently under construction) also includes an ultimate future northward extension of John Gorton Drive, linking back to Coulter Drive a few hundred meters to the north.

(6) Yes, a grade separation (ie a fly-over) was considered. However, the traffic modelling indicated that the proposed layout (currently under construction) together with the future northern connection to Coulter Drive mentioned above, would continue to operate satisfactorily beyond 2041 without the need for a grade separation. A requirement of the Development Application process was to demonstrate and ensure that a grade separated intersection could fit within the footprint of the intersection (which is does) if it were ever required in the future.

(7) Traffic modelling of the various options out to 2041 was undertaken.

(8) According to that modelling, the proposed layout (with the future northern connection to Coulter Drive) would continue to operate satisfactorily beyond 2041, without the need for grade separation. Should a grade separation be required some time beyond that, it could be constructed within the footprint of the intersection currently under construction.

(9) The Director Capital Works, Transport Canberra and City Services approved the design. The Development Application Notice of Decision was approved by an authorised delegate of the ACT Planning and Land Authority within the (then) Environment and Planning Directorate.

(10) No.
