Belconnen Way gets narrower for cars

By johnboy - 18 June 2009 25

Of all the very many complaints one hears about ACTION the time it takes to get from Belconnen to Civic is one that never comes up.

And yet it remains a fascination for the Stanhope Government.

Long term followers of the Legislative Assembly still giggle at plans for the magical time travel busway which promised to cut 15 minutes off the 14 minute trip.

Jon Stanhope is now trying to put a positive spin on his “new bus lane” on Belconnen Way.

Regular users of that arterial road have until now been using this “new” lane as the left hand lane of an already congested road.

But heck, we’re doing it for the planet kids!

    “The ACT Government will continue to invest in enhancing the ACT’s bus services to encourage more Canberrans to make the switch and leave the car at home,” Mr Stanhope said.

“The bus lane, constructed at a cost of $500,000, has been coloured a distinctive red and signs have been installed to advise motorists of the new traffic arrangements.”

Back in my day you could build an entire house for $500,000.

Doesn’t worry those of us who live in the southside – where the streets are wider anyway

Pandy, I’d love that if the cycle lanes remain. The times I could easily leave the bike lane to pass the stopped bus except doofus in car has just passed me and is now stuck close behind the bus, leaving no space to work with, for them or for me.
