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.

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…

  1. Could you please push to government to properly time the traffic light signals for a ‘green wave’ as traffic congestion and slow travel times on Hindmarsh drive from Weston Creek to Fyshwick/Queanbeyan are extremely frustrating for those travelling this route daily. The lights throughout the journey are based on a ‘red wave’ and you have to stop literally at every traffic light. These roadworks appease 2 suburbs’ residents but causes great disadvantage to 10+ suburbs’ residents as a result.

  2. I agree. Travelling from Weston Creek all the way along Hindmarsh through Woden til at least Swinger Hill, is a slow journey.
