Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 12 Hansard (Thursday, 26 October 2017) . . Page.. 4537 ..
Ms Fitzharris: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
1. The options identified are grouped as follows:
• Measures recommended for immediate implementation are marked as priority 1; and
• other options identified for consideration post implementation and evaluation are marked as priority 2 and 3.
a. Maribyrnong Avenue, Kaleen – all priority 1 measures with the exception of the Maribyrnong Avenue / Ashburton Circuit intersection have been implemented.
b. Sternberg Crescent, Wanniassa – all priority 1 measures have been implemented. The master plan is being reviewed.
c. Macarthur, Fadden and Gowrie – all priority 1 and some lower priority measures have been implemented.
d. Messenger Street, Trickett Street and Beaurepaire Crescent, Holt – all priority 1 measures have been implemented.
e. Streeton Drive, Weston Creek – all priority 1 and some lower priority measures have been implemented. The Master Plan is being reviewed.
f. Copland Drive (Evatt, Melba and Spence) – all priority 1 measures with the exception of the roundabout at the Copland Drive and Verbrugghen Street have been implemented.
g. Chisholm, Richardson and Gilmore – all Priority 1 and some lower priority measures have been implemented. The Master Plan is being reviewed.
2. Implementations have differed from the original concept plan at the following locations:
a. Sternberg Crescent, Wanniassa;
b. Macarthur, Fadden and Gowrie;
c. Streeton Drive, Weston Creek; and
d. Chisholm, Richardson and Gilmore.
3. The changes and corresponding reasons are:
a. Sternberg Crescent, Wanniassa – the recommended roundabout at the Sternberg Crescent / Langdon Avenue intersection was changed to traffic signals. This was to comply with the recommendations of the Erindale Master Plan.
b. Macarthur, Fadden and Gowrie – the recommended concrete raised platforms with pedestrian crossings on Bugden Avenue and Castleton Crescent were replaced with speed cushions. This was because the review of the Master Plan found that pedestrian crossings at these locations were not a preferred option because of the relatively low pedestrian traffic volume.
c. Streeton Drive, Weston Creek – the recommended roundabouts at the intersections of Streeton Drive / Fremantle Drive and Streeton Drive / Bangalay Crescent were replaced with channelised right turns. The channelised right turns are a more cost effective measure to improve lane discipline and safety through the intersections.
d. Chisholm, Richardson and Gilmore – a pedestrian refuge island and a set of speed cushions were implemented on Norriss Street and Beattie Crescent respectively. These measures were not part of the original Master Plan; however, the review of the Master Plan recommended these additional measures to further improve road safety on the streets for all road users.
4. Yes, all directly affected residents and relevant stakeholders were consulted.
