The width and general alignment of local access streets does not accommodate bus routes, or facilitate bus turning movements to or from Stockman Avenue. Upon extension of Stockman Avenue through to Ginninderra Drive, Transport Canberra will expedite delivery of a bus route that runs through Lawson on this collector road.

(2) Only Stockman Avenue is wide enough to accommodate Transport Canberra’s bus fleet.

(3) Other than the intersection of Baldwin Drive and Stockman Avenue, there are no intersections within Lawson Stage 1 that can facilitate a bus turning left or right because the planning intent is for buses to travel directly through the suburb via Stockman Avenue.

(4) See answer above.
