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.

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.

Below are the various roads that this site has photos of. The routes are sorted by their route number.
