Belconnen Town Centre – traffic flow issues

By roccon 2 February 2010 21

We have had so many traffic lights installed into Belconnen that they may actually be visible from space.

It has become a slow painful journey getting to any part of Belconnen Town centre. Nothing seems to be phased to bias traffic to go in any one particular direction.

Would we be better off changing many of the streets to one way streets? This would simplify traffic light phasing and allow room for more bus and bike lanes. Traffic should flow more freely.

Also with the start of construction of the new suburbs in the Molonglo, a new 4 way intersection will be installed at the Bindubi Street/William Hovell Drive intersection as well as the Coulter Drive/William Hovell Drive intersection. How will this affect peak hour traffic heading east in the morning and west through the Glenloch in the evening. Should these intersections have flyovers for William Hovell Drive ?

What’s Your opinion?

Grail…I applaud the sentiment, but sometimes that just isn’t possible. I do a weekly shop for a family of 4 – can’t imagine lugging that around on my bike 🙂 But I agree – I avoid Westfields as much as possible.

However, we live in the Gungahlin area, so Belconnen is the closest place to find retail outlets. Belconnen will just get busier as more suburbs are built in Gungahlin and the new residents have nowhere to shop locally (besides groceries).
