Roads ACT boss Tony Gill has advised that demolition of the collapsed bridgeworks on Barton Highway is to commence today. The works should take five to seven days.
Meanwhile, problems from diverting traffic continue to plague Gungahlin commutes. People are coming off Barton Highway onto Gungahlin Drive, then turning right into Mitchell at the Sandford Street lights, and at Wells Station Drive. Combined with the Flemington Road roadworks nearing completion at Harrison and Mitchell, we have a few serious chokepoints on Flemington Road and Gungahlin Drive.
Tony has agreed to look at the traffic light sequencing to give more time to the through traffic.
