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…
