New Traffic Signals for Hindmarsh Drive

The ACT Budget has confirmed that new traffic signals will be installed at the intersections of Eggleston Crescent /Hindmarsh Drive, Launceston Street/ Hindmarsh Drive and the Tuggeranong parkway off ramp slip lane /Hindmarsh Drive.

hinbdmarsh_lights$1.52 Million was allocated in the 2016/17 ACT budget for final design and construction

These intersections have had a high vehicle crash history particularly at morning and afternoon peak times. Traffic congestion has also lead to the ACTION bus route 21/22 being reconfigured to avoid lengthy delays crossing Hindmarsh Drive.

These intersections had also been evaluated for Federal Blackspot funding as far back as 2011 with the reports recommending a number of different treatments and options. The AECOM final reports recommendation was traffic signals as the best option.  Click each image to access the report…

Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) are preparing for the future refurbishment of the public spaces of the Lyons Shops.

A Lyons Shopping Centre Forward Design Study is being prepared as the first step to find out what the Lyons community wants for their shopping centre and what they consider important. A key part of this Study is consultation with the community on issues such as the needs of pedestrians; traffic calming and lighting; landscaping; parking arrangements and artwork.

Preliminary plans are now complete. The plans were prepared using information from consultations with the Lyons community and will be used as a starting point for the final design for construction.

The final Preliminary Sketch Plans and the Lyons Forward Design Study Report are available online.

Construction of the upgrade is programmed for the 2009-10 financial year.
