$11.5 million to continue the duplication of Vanderlin Drive

Posted On May 11, 2015

Minister for Transport

The Country Liberals Government has committed $11.5 million to increase the capacity of Vanderlin Drive as part of its $587.1 million record investment in Transport Infrastructure.

Minister for Transport Peter Chandler said the allocated funds will complete the duplication with an additional three km of four lane access along Vanderlin Drive from Mueller Road to the Vanderlin Drive/McMillans Road roundabout.

“This government is making lives easier for Territorians by improving the local traffic capacity and reducing congestion on this important arterial road,” Mr Chandler said.

“The duplication of Vanderlin Drive to two lanes each way will double traffic capacity and therefore improve pedestrian and road user safety.”

The detailed design will identify the full scope of works and will include:

  • The construction of two additional lanes.
  • Relocation of bus stops.
  • Upgrade Shoal Bay Recycling Centre road intersection.
  • Construction of a median strip and landscaping.
  • Footpath and cycle path connections.
  • Changes to pedestrian crossing.

“Once works are completed, the duplication will be similar to the existing dual lanes on Vanderlin Drive,” Mr Chandler said.

“Transport Infrastructure supports the community and facilitates economic development.

“This government is committed to developing Northern Australia and unlocking potential opportunities for all regions in the Territory.”

Detailed design work will commence in July 2015 and works are expected to be completed in 2016.

The Vanderlin Drive duplication is 100% Northern Territory Government funded.
