Adelaide Avenue roadworks

Road resurfacing works continue this week on making a dedicated continuous lane from the Cotter Road ramp onto Adelaide Avenue at Yarralumla.

Residents of Weston Creek and Molonglo will see their daily commute time reduced by up to five minutes with improved traffic flow whilst not significantly affecting Northbound traffic from Woden.

The Cotter Road on-ramp will continue onto Adelaide Avenue and become the left-hand lane. The T2/Bus Lane will be discontinued for a distance and will merge with regular traffic in the middle lane, providing three lanes of traffic city bound.

The T2/Bus Lane will be reinstated on Adelaide Avenue when the road opens up to four lanes just north of Hopetoun Circuit. No changes are being made to the Southbound lanes on Adelaide Avenue.
