In recent days, a number of articles have been written about the WSP study. The document obtained from a tender was, however, corrupted. Now a better copy has become available, it will be posted here with all the appendices. The original articles are still relevant, and the link to the corrupted document will be replaced in due course. In the meantime, the documents are available here.
The Molonglo 3 East Planning and Infrastructure Study is a combination of engineering (WSP) and urban design (RobertsDay). The content related to cycling is largely found in the reports written by RobertsDay. RobertsDay is facilitating a Movement and Place framework discussion between ACT Transport and ACT Environment on the go. Molonglo 3 East project is about experimentation and innovation. The cycle network is still inconclusive but appears promising.
The topography of Molonglo 3 East demands a reframing of the way planning is done in the ACT. Best practices that apply to the Molonglo valley are not support by the Estate Development Code, Single and Multi-Unit Housing Development Codes and the zoning codes in the Territory Plan. Molonglo 3 East is something new and exciting that will push ACT planing towards an outcomes planning mechanism.
The Molonglo 3 East Planning and Infrastructure Study is a combination of engineering (WSP) and urban design (RobertsDay). This article outlines what is in the report for cycling. This article focuses on the reports from WSP.
Molonglo 3 East Planning and Infrastructure Study (Phase 1) is coming out bit by bit. Unfortunately, it has not yet been released in full. The recent tender 53971.RFT.01, Preliminary Roads And Earthworks Design, provides a history of the planning documents for Molonglo 3 East to date.
As attractive as it may be to build on a greenfield, the future of the ACT is urban renewal – taking the old and turning it into something new. In this context, we expect to hear a lot more from RobertsDay, a leading Australian urban planning firm that has penned many of Canberra’s future urban areas, including Ginninderry, Molonglo Stage 3 Project Design Brief, and the little known village in Red Hill.
This is the first of a series of articles on ACT building codes. The character and liveability of our city is a product of these codes. Here is a brief introduction to Estate Development Code and why it needs to be revised.
The Estate Development Code and Molonglo 3 Stage 2 are a poor mix. The local terrain is working against the ACT Government. Something has got to give.
