Major construction to start on Constitution Avenue


Construction work will shortly commence on the $42 million upgrade of Constitution Avenue.

The upgrade is a major Australian Government infrastructure project that will revitalise the road corridor, improve accessibility and create jobs. Funded in celebration of Canberra’s centenary, the project will give Constitution Avenue a new lease on life and boost the local economy.

 

Preliminary works to get the site ready have progressed well since March, and work will start soon to completely recreate Constitution Avenue between London Circuit and Anzac Parade.

This will not only involve replacing the road infrastructure, but also include new lighting, street furniture, large pedestrian zones and approximately 220 new oak trees that will make this an inviting space for Civic’s booming café culture to expand towards the lake.

In 12 months, Constitution Avenue will be completely transformed and locals can expect to see a lot of new residential and hospitality investment in the area in the future. Guideline ACT were recently awarded the contract for construction.

“The Constitution Avenue funding contained in this year’s budget is reflective of the Coalition’s ongoing commitment to invest in the infrastructure that keeps our cities moving,” stated Senator Seselja.
