Quote from: smitho on June 26, 2014, 07:57:12 pmNew service station intended for both Weston Ck and Molonglo communities is to be located on the Cotter Rd. Precise location is not known, but my guess is that it'll be on the westbound carriageway after the Tugg Parkway overpass.A bit unusual being located on what will be a busy arterial road and nowhere near a local or group centre. Doesn't seem a very clever proposal.
Quote from: smitho on July 02, 2014, 12:52:56 amWhy introduce needless congestion onto urban arterial roads when it can be avoided by smart planning? European countries (possibly excepting Britain) know about smart town planning and avoiding these kinds of bad siting decisions. Methinks it is the almighty dollar dictating the Cotter Rd site.Anyway, wrong to suggest that Canberra hasn't got service stations on arterial roads....years ago, NCDC was pressured to permit two sites on Northbourne Ave / Federal Highway.
Quote from: Bus 400 on July 02, 2014, 11:33:06 pmAre we forgetting about the Shell & BP service stations on Melrose Drive in Phillip or the BP on Canberra Avenue in Kingston (or Manuka if that's the case)?
Quote from: King of Buses on December 28, 2014, 06:46:24 pmI believe it is John Gorton Dr like the building in Parkes on routes 2 and 3
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on December 29, 2014, 10:14:05 amMy guess is that the bridge you are referring to is not actually crossing the Molonglo River (yet), just the valley.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on December 31, 2014, 09:13:58 amDid some further internet searches (including looking at the satellite images on Google Maps). The thing being built is a combined "sewer and pedestrian link bridge". (Refer to ACT Budget 2014-15 )There are no plans at present for the John Gorton Drive crossing of Molonglo River.
