You've arrived at the road photos and information section that covers decommissioned tourist drive routes within the Australian Capital Territory.

Following correspondence with Roads ACT on 9 November 2015, it was revealed that all tourist drives except for TD5 have been decommissioned. At the time, due to funding, there was no program to replace all tourist drives at once. However, it was indicated that Roads ACT would be removing the signs gradually as part of their road maintenance program, except TD5. At the date of correspondence, it was indicated that discussions were in progress with Tourism ACT about using an appropriate name for the route. However in since about 2016, new signs have omitted the TD5 designation, so it is likely that TD5 has now also been decommissioned, hence its inclusion in this section.

Points of interest along the old routes still exist and according to the email they have been signposted individually considering the area of influence and the significance of the attraction.
