(3) What other measures will the ACT Government undertake to prevent speeding and improve road safety on Magrath Crescent.

Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) Magrath Crescent was investigated in 2017 as part of the traffic study on streets in Charnwood, Flynn and Fraser.

The study found that 85% of surveyed motorists were travelling at or below 60km/h, noting that the legal speed limit of the street is 50km/h.

(2) The study recommended traffic calming measures (a set of speed cushions) on the street to reduce travelling speeds and improve road safety for all road users.

It is anticipated that these measures will be implemented by mid-2019.

(3) TCCS will evaluate the effectiveness of the implemented measures in 2020. Any further investigations will depend on the results of this evaluation.
