Tuggeranong to Kingston Route

Postby TonyMax » Thu Nov 03, 2016 10:14 am

Strava is leading me astray telling me I need to go against the flow of traffic on State Circle.

What are people's suggested routes from Tuggeranong Town Centre to Kennedy Street Kingston please?

Cheers,


Tony

That route if fine if you stick to the correct side of the road and use the correct ramp onto Adelaide Ave

A few options. One would be to deviate off at Hopetoun CCT at Deakinthen head onup to Mugga Way, left at Flinders and onto CBR avenue.

You could also just stay on State Circle and drop onto the lake path and head on to Kingston from there.

athllon drive, Melrose, CW Avenue, left at the Hopetoun off ramp and turn right underneath. First left which is Grey Street. up the hill past junior girls grammar. Chuck at right at Empire Circuit. Not too much traffic that way although it has become a bit of a rat run for people working in Manuka/Forrest. It takes you round to Canberra ave near the manuka shops.

If you haven't already sorted it - Strava isn't too far off the mark. On the run along Adelaide Av there are 2 off-ramps. Take the second, after you cross over State Circle bridge which will see you traveling east on the correct side of the road.

The entire bike lane goes left at the first off ramp from Adelaide Ave at State Circle. Trying to get to the second one involves merging into the 80kmh lane, dodging off-ramp traffic trying to left hook you, and trying not to get rear ended over the bridge. You'd be better off doing State circle clockwise, or as others have said, along Hopetoun through Forrest or Mugga Way.
