Kings Highway Corridor (ACT-NSW)

Funding Program:Investment Road and Rail Program

Project Description

This project will deliver targeted upgrades along the Kings Highway corridor, fromĀ east of Queanbeyan to the Canberra International Airport, improving the east-west connectivity between NSW and the ACT.

Benefits

Parts of the corridor are single carriageway arterial road only, causing considerable congestion, particularly in the morning peak. An upgrade to the road network will reduce travel times, increase travel time reliability and improve safety.

The project will also improve east-west freight movements between the ACT and NSW coastal communities.

Funding

The Australian Government contribution is capped at $30 million.

Timetable

Planning is underway.
