Queanbeyan's Roads

The proposed road connecting the Googong housing development to the Monaro Highway will receive $38 million in Federal money if Labor is re-elected. Member for Eden Monaro Mike Kelly made the announcement this morning, committing to "future-proofing" the Queanbeyan road network.

The total cost of constructing the Dunns Creek Road is estimated to be $75 million, with the remaining 50 per cent in funds required from the NSW Government, Queanbeyan City Council and the private sector. Dr Kelly said a further $2 million would be put towards preliminary planning work into duplicating Pialligo Road, which carries up to 20,000 commuters over the ACT border every day.

however no money has been pledged to build Ellerton road extension which is vital for planning for Qbn's future as Queanbeyan's population increases. what are your thoughts on this I would like to here comments? Is this good? Is this enough?
