Design work is underway for safety improvements and intersection upgrades at key locations along the Monaro Highway from Johnson Drive through to the access road to the Alexander Maconochie Centre. This includes the intersections with Lanyon Drive and Isabella Drive and intersections with Mugga Lane, Tralee Street and Sheppard Street into Hume.

Investigations to improve safety at key intersections along the Monaro Highway got underway in 2019 and we now have the concept designs for a southbound flyover at the intersection of the Monaro Highway with Lanyon Drive. Construction at the Lanyon Drive intersection will be the first package of improvements to commence as part of the overall Monaro Highway upgrade project, expected to begin in the 2020-21 financial year.

The concept designs for improvements at the Lanyon Drive intersection include:
