ACT Government plans for traffic changes during light rail construction


The ACT Government has put forward a proposal to avoid disruptions during Light Rail Stage 2 construction.

Transport Minister Chris Steel says the focus will be on minimising disruption on Parkes Way, one of the ACT’s key arterial roads while construction is taking place.

The Government is proposing to add traffic lights to the roundabout at the intersection of Parkes Way and Coranderrk Street to better regulate traffic flow and improve the capacity of the intersection.

A disruption taskforce was setup by the government to identify intersections that would require priority action for managing traffic disruption associated with light rail, with more analysis to be completed as the project continues.

The government will wait for a response from the Commonwealth before proceeding.
