Leading out of Gungahlin, the right hand bend of Flemington Drive is posted at 70 km/h (according to Google). Road works are posted
at 40, as usual. The route is in the median for most of the distance, but on the approach to the industrial area it shifts to the
west side of the road, still on reservation. When it turns into Federal Highway, it reverts to the median, and the speed limit here
is 60 for road works.

Remember there are several signalized intersections, and parallel side roads, which exit and enter the main highway frequently - I
think usually to avoid having too many traffic streams at signalized intersections.

It would seem that 70 would be the limit anywhere. Google shows various bits of the track under construction, presumably in a few
days this will be renewed and you will only see the completed work.

Query, from the actual time and date that the first shovel was dug, to the expected finishing time, how does this compare with
Sydney and GCLR?

Of course governments can re-gazette reserves whenever they want. It would
take legislation in Parliament to create a "Tramway Reserve" with its own
speed rules if such a classification doesn't exist. MPs these days would
rather play games than actually legislate. Plus, of course, their senior
executive service would need to know this too.

Ah, silly me.
