on Shakespeare Crescent recommended as part of the study; if so, did the ACT Government relate that these measures will be implemented in future residential street improvement programs and if yes, when can residents expect to see a residential street improvement program implementing these measures.

(2) What specific traffic calming measures are being considered by the ACT Government to address road safety at the Rogers Street and Shakespeare Crescent intersection and nearby roads.

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

(1) Yes, the Rogers Street and Shakespeare Crescent intersection was assessed as part of the traffic study on streets in Flynn, Fraser and Charnwood. The ACT Government has committed to delivering the priority recommendations identified in the study as part of a future residential street improvement program. The priority recommendations will be delivered as part of a capital works project in 2019-20.

(2) The report recommended a combination of speed humps on Shakespeare Crescent and an intersection upgrade at the Rogers Street / Shakespeare Crescent. The ACT Government will install traffic calming measures on Shakespeare Crescent as the first priority measure in 2019-20, as a reduction in vehicle speeds may address the ‘line of sight / visibility’ issues at the intersection without further work being required.
