National highways linking Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra, third report: Canberra connections, 1979

The objectives of the study were to: a) develop alternative feasible routes for the highway connections to Canberra from the hume highway, including the possibility of a bypass of Yass; b) estimate the costs of constructing the alternative routes; c) discuss the impacts on the biophysical environment which might be expected from each alternative route; (d) identify the social implications of alternative routes; (e) evaluate the road user effects of alternative routes; and (f) report on the alternatives and their expected effects, and on the possibility of a bypass of Yass by the hume highway. This study describes the investigations carried out for each corridor and presents the results and the conclusions. The study includes the principal information used as a basis for the conclusions as to the most appropriate in each corridor, and also provides details of the assessment of the economic justification for construction of the preferred route.
