The three intersections are:

Dudley Street/Novar Street/Kent Street/Adelaide Avenue on-ramp;

Kent Street/Adelaide Ave off-ramp; and

Kent Street/Denison Street.

The project will signalise the three intersections and coordinate traffic signal phasing to achieve maximum traffic flow benefit during the AM and PM peaks to improve safety and ease congestion. The project will also rationalise active travel infrastructure so pedestrians and cyclists can move through the three intersections efficiently and safely.

f) Supporting more Canberran’s for Park and Ride - Works involve the construction of a Park and Ride facility at the south eastern corner of Well Station Drive and Flemington Road for the community to accommodate parking facilities for 150-200 vehicles and other associated works in support of Light Rail.

g) Kuringa and Owen Dixon Drive Intersection - Works involve the signalisation of this intersection. This includes improved safety and crossing opportunities for pedestrian and cyclists, including a shared path connection to Barton Highway. The project will also accommodate the future duplication of Kuringa Drive and the modification of the intersection from uncontrolled to controlled should result in a reduction of accidents occurring.

Monaro Highway- The Monaro Highway Safety Improvements project will see the construction of an overtaking lane on the Monaro Highway between Old Cooma Road and Williamsdale Road and improvements at the Old Cooma Road and Williamsdale Road intersections.

Monaro Highway - The project involves upgrading the existing intersections at Monaro Highway / Lanyon Drive and Monaro Highway/ Isabella Drive to provide elevated ‘grade separated’ interchanges at both as well as intersection treatments (on the Monaro Highway) through Hume. The upgrades will improve safety and network efficiencies along the corridor.

2. All funds have been committed within the appropriations based up on estimates of the value of the associated works and management fees. At this point it would be inappropriate to discuss contracts that maybe in procurement, negotiation, or not yet complete. Upon the completion of projects, realised savings are identified, notified to treasury and returned as appropriate.
