Road infrastructure in Canberra
The road connects Yarralumla with the Parliament House area. Adelaide Avenue is a popular tourist route, since Parliament house, the residence of the Australian Prime Minister, and the Royal Australian Mint, can be seen from it.
The far right lane was used as a bus lane until December 2006, but due to the Gungahlin Drive Extension it was changed to a T2 transit lane. The T2 lane was reverted to a bus lane on 14 November 2011 after the completion of the Gungahlin Drive Extension. However a week after the lane was turned back to a bus lane the ACT Liberals and the ACT Greens overturned the decision, resulting in the lane changing to a T2 lane despite the wishes of the Labor party and the Transport Workers Union.
