By johnboy 9 August 2012 23

Territory and Municipal Services are warning that the Floriade embuggerance to Commonwealth Avenue is starting again:

Effective from Monday 13 August 2012 the following arrangements will be in place:

— a perimeter fence installed around the Floriade site;
— temporary traffic lights will be operational on Commonwealth Avenue; and
— the speed limit along Commonwealth Avenue will be reduced from 70 km/h to 60 km/h.

To assist with installation of the fence there will be lane closures along Parkes Way (westbound) between 9 am and 4 pm on Monday 13 August 2012.

From Monday 20 August 2012 Commonwealth Park will be closed including the three car parks at Regatta Point which are bounded by Barrine Drive, Regatta Place and Albert Street.

Commonwealth Park including the abovementioned car parks will be reopened to the public at 9 am on Monday 29 October 2012. The temporary traffic lights on Commonwealth Avenue will also be removed on Monday 29 October 2012 and the speed limit returned to 70k m/h.

Another nearly quarter of the year with dodgy roadworks signs in the middle of our capital city during a period of great tourism.

Stay classy Canberra.

Mr Gillespie said :

Speed limit reduced by 10km/h from 70 to 60, wow, that is a HUGE difference!!!!

Still….better than being reduced to 40km/h I spose…..

It just means that most drivers will be exceeding the speed limit by 30km/h, rather than the regular 20km/h.

Floriade. It means the magpies start swooping. It must annoy them, too.
