Roads—traffic signals(Question No 1511)
Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Transport and City Services, upon notice, on 8 June 2018 (redirected to the Acting Minister for Transport and City Services):
(1) At which locations does the ACT provide buses in bus lanes with traffic signal priority.
(2) Why is the bus lane not given traffic signal priority heading eastbound into the City at the intersection of Barry Drive and Kingsley Street, City.
Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) The following intersections have ‘B’ signals which allow buses and taxis and motorcycles to proceed while the adjacent traffic is held on a red signal:
• Barry Drive/Clunies Ross Street;
• Athllon Drive/Drakeford Drive;
• Drakeford Drive/Taverner Street;
• Athllon Drive/Hindmarsh Drive;
• Belconnen Way/Gungahlin Drive Extension;
• Canberra Avenue/Geelong Street;
• Cotter Road/Kirkpatrick Street;
• Cotter Road/Streeton Drive;
• John Gorton Drive/Cotter Road
• John Gorton Drive/Steve Irwin Avenue
• John Gorton Drive/Opperman Avenue; and
• John Gorton Drive/Wyndham Avenue.
In addition a similar facility will be provided at Gungahlin Drive/Gundaroo Drive when the current improvement project is completed.
(2) Traffic signals at this intersection allow buses to turn right into Kingsley Street from the bus lane on the left hand side of Barry Drive. When this happens all other vehicle and pedestrian movements are held on red signals. This occurs during the normal sequence of the signals. If absolute priority were given for this phase it would result in unpredictable operation of the signals that would cause long delays to all other road users, including pedestrians.
