Construction of 4.6 kilometres of two-lane single carriageway, with climbing lanes and earthworks, linking Ellerton Drive to the Edwin Land Parkway at the intersection at Old Cooma Road, and a bridge over the Queanbeyan River.

- Provide a flood-free access through the CBD for 1:100 year flood events;
- Provide alternative access for heavy vehicles; and

Australian Government contribution is capped at $25m and is provided on the basis of a NSW Government contribution of $25m. The remaining funding is being met by the Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council.
Construction on the project is expected to commence in late 2017 and be completed in early 2019.
