I’ve had a grumble in the past about drivers on the GDE who see the queue in the right hand lane between Mitchell and the Barton Highway overpass and so switch to the left hand lane, so as to pass a few cars and shove their way in further up the line at the merge point just before the bridge.
Seems there are some who think that’s fine. So I wanted to get your take on the latest queue jumping efforts observed on the GDE. I figured once was an innocent mistake, but having seen it twice now, I think it’s becoming a “thing”.
With the roadworks now extending from the Barton Highway overpass all the way to Belconnen Way, the GDE has been known to crawl along at 20kmph throughout. This evidently frustrates some, and in order to queue jump, they take the Gininderra Drive exit at speed, and instead of turning left or right, proceed straight across and proceed back up the on ramp on the other side, rejoining the GDE some 20 car lengths further up.
