Upcoming traffic changes for road users in the city

29 Aug 22 | By pp-admin | Rider Alerts

Transport Canberra and City Services advise two projects are getting underway from Monday 22 August 2022 in and around the city.

Coranderrk Street / Parkes Way roundabout intersection signalisation

Works to signalise the roundabout intersection of Coranderrk Street and Parkes Way will commence from Monday 22 August 2022.

There will be reduced speed limits and occasional lane closures for the first three weeks whilst site establishment and early works are underway.

From September road users will experience a combination of dayworks and nightworks with the majority of works scheduled at night where possible to minimise impacts to traffic. There will be westbound road closures across four non-consecutive weekends in coming months as well as both eastbound and westbound lane closures during nightshifts.

Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

 Verity and Odgers lane upgrades

Odgers and Verity Lanes are getting a makeover with more outdoor dining, festoon lighting, heritage tree protection, new paving, new landscaping and stormwater upgrades.

Fencing has been erected and earthworks have begun in Verity Lane ahead of major works commencing later in September. The most disruptive works involve weekday lane closures and two weekend road closures along London Circuit which are planned for September and October. Some of these closures will impact bus routes with signed detours in place for all road users. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

From Monday 22 August 2022 there will be a single lane closure along London Circuit at Odgers Lane and the bus lane will be closed at Verity Lane for watermain works. Access to both Odgers and Verity lanes will be managed under Stop & Go as required. These works will continue during daytime hours on weekdays only over the coming weeks.

Construction has been delayed due to nationwide material supply shortages and we anticipate works continuing into early 2023.

If you have any questions about either project, please email communityengagement@act.gov.au.

Updates on these projects will continue to be provided via email and online at www.cityservices.act.gov.au.
