Liberal dreams for Erindale

erindale

Bear in mind that the Liberal road for electoral success runs through Tuggeranong when you consider their latest policy of improvements to Erindale:

ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja and ACT Shadow Urban Services Minister Alistair Coe announced today that if elected, a Canberra Liberals Government will immediately improve the look of Gartside Street in Erindale through better landscaping, footpaths and dozens of car parks, and will undertake further studies to identify additional cark parks.

Mr Seselja said this commitment is an important part of the Canberra Liberals’ plan to provide thousands more parking spaces across the ACT, and to clean up Canberra.

“Under the ACT Labor Government, Erindale’s parking needs have been ignored and local businesses have suffered as a result,” Mr Seselja said.

“That’s why if elected, a Canberra Liberals Government will immediately add more parking spaces to Gartside Street in Erindale, and undertake a comprehensive study for more parking in the centre.

“We’ll also improve the overall look of Gartside Street through better landscaping and footpaths. The total cost of this policy is $225,000, and will come from our already announced $700 million roads and parking package,” Mr Seselja concluded.

The area needs a major overhaul not tinkering around the edges.

Some kind of ‘Master Plan’ perhaps?

I think that you’ll find that ESDD (used to be ACTPLA), as part of their Erindale Master Plan (linked to above), conducted a study of traffic issues in Erindale. That study found that converting Gartside St to one-way didn’t really help the traffic operations as all of the traffic had to exit from one end of Gartside St, not both ends. It also found that there isn’t enough space to properly build angle parking on Gartside Street (as shown in the image above).

Follow the link above and then click on the blue box titled “Traffic, car parking and bus station – Erindale” to learn more about the work already undertaken by ESDD.

As an Erindale local I can attest to the s***tiness of Gartside st. That being said, a lot of the problem is the traffic there. Not only does everyone seem to drive like a psychopath in Erindale, the flow of traffic is poorly managed. I’m not sure adding more room on for cars will help unless they also tidy up the road, so that everyone can move about freely.

Agreed. Make Gartside Street a one-way street for a start.

Yea A One Way Street In Erindale-The Half Wits Wouldn’t Know What Direction To Drive,Even With Large Flashing Neon Signs And Armed Gaurds At Both Ends Of Gartside Street!
The “STOP” Sign At Denigan And Comrie Streets Is A good Example…
