The National Capital Authority brings word that the famed Kings Avenue car park is coming to an end as permanent lanes open following their mammoth realignment of the arterial intersection.
Traffic conditions at the Kings Avenue overpass will change this Tuesday, as permanent lanes come into use.
On Tuesday, changed traffic movements will include:
— Traffic movements on Parkes Way and Morshead Drive will travel under the overpass in both directions. — — For an interim period, this will be one lane each way. The final two lanes each way will be opened at project completion.
— New traffic signals on the overpass will be operational. The intersection, where Kings Avenue passes over Parkes Way will now allow traffic movements in most directions. Traffic will move through the intersection in three traffic signal phases.
— Three of the four ramps will be operational. West-bound traffic, travelling from the airport to the Russell precinct, will continue using the Russell Drive entrance at the Morshead Drive roundabout, until the final ramp is constructed.
— Pedestrian movements over the bridge will not come into use until the final stages of the works.
The new traffic movements will be in place from around midday on Tuesday, 7 June.
A 40km/ph speed limit will continue to remain in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There will also be advisory signage, variable message boards and vehicle speed indicators.
Final works are expected to be complete by August.
