Glenloch to be closed by night

By johnboy - 22 August 2011 8

Territory And Municipal Services are warning that the much needed conclusion of the Gungahlin Drive Extension will mean road closures:

The ACT Government wishes to advise motorists and other road users that the Lady Denman Drive off-ramp and Glenloch Interchange on the Tuggeranong Parkway (both directions) will be temporarily closed from 10 pm to 5 am nightly between Tuesday 23 August 2011 and Tuesday 6 September 2011.

This is to allow for road works associated with the Gungahlin Drive Extension stage 2.

Barriers as well as warning and diversion signs will be erected to alert people of the closure.

The ACT Government apologises for the inconvenience.

For up-to-date information on road closures please call Canberra Connect on 13 22 81

The pdf also seems not to show the shite alignment of the lanes when traveling from the city to Belconnen. The weave in the traffic for no other reason than the old curb is there.

Couldn’t agree more, even better is the cross-slope as you exit Parkes way going towards Belco (just before you go under the flyover), it is screaming out for a car or bike to hit it at speed so it can funnel, in one smooth motion, the unfortunate driver/rider directly into the pole, tree, mound then bike underpass that exist no more than 3 metres from the edge.

The PDF also doesn’t show the terrible condition of the road after exiting the Parkway towards the city, and heading down onto Parkes Way. The road’s been re-laid half way down…then turns into a heavy vehicle damaged, rough mess of a road.

It’s almost as though the design brief included provisions for, upon completion, Glenloch to display its entire sorry history via the various road surfaces we’ll end up with.

Don’t we pay enough taxes? Or conversely, if we paid more, would the quality of road infrastructure improve?

Good find screaming banshee. But it will be as no surprise to just about anyone who has been following the general GDE and roadsigns sagas that the first two overhead signs are nothing like that at all! The ‘where you want to go’ info is written next to the direction arrows NOT above them. Why did they not just follow the plan especially as they have now had two attempts to get it right?

I had another look today and the 2nd overhead sign where the airplane symbol is pointing straight ahead (instead of angled left) is also positioned adjacent to the left most straight ahead arrow. A quick glance at this sign and you could easily be heading straight ahead to Gungahlin instead of exiting left to the airport.

Here’s an idea, how about putting a decent amount of workers on DURING THE DAY! This lot couldn’t organise a root in a brothel.

Do the signs match what is shown here – http://www.gde.act.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/175626/Glenloch_Map_v2.pdf

If there were no other indication I suppose the way the plane is pointing would indicate which direction you could go but I’m pretty certain most signage, these ones included, have the ‘where you want to go’ information above the ‘how to get there’ information. The orientation of the plane should be consistent.

Yes the new overhead signs are up. However I noticed travelling from Tuggeranong Parkway to the city the first overhead sign has the blue airport symbol pointing to the left (ie exit is to the left). On the next overhead sign the plane is pointing straight up and of course if you continue straight you end up on Caswell Dve. If you are going to have one angled left to signify an exit is needed to reach the airport why not do both?

They forgot to mention “…. and to replace the road signs at Glenloch Interchange to ones that you can actually read because we forgot to define the font size in the tender” … but that’s a given.
