Nishi road closures

Territory and Municipal Services are warning that finishing off the Nishi apartment building is going to take some road changes in the vicinity:

The initial stage of road works will realign the eastbound Parkes Way off-ramp to assist with the installation of traffic lights on Edinburgh Avenue adjacent to the Nishi development.

Speed reductions of 40 kilometres per hour will be in place along both Parkes Way off-ramps and on Edinburgh Avenue for the duration of the works.

The works will also include the permanent removal of one right turning lane from the westbound Parkes Way off-ramp onto Edinburgh Avenue and the removal of one lane across the Edinburgh Avenue bridge.

There will be temporary lane closures on both directions of Edinburgh Avenue at various stages during the works.

Are they still planning to eventually extend Marcus Clarke?

So if this diagram is accurate, the roadworks speed limits extend hundreds of metres around where the work will actually be happening. As soon as you turn off London Circuit onto Edinburgh Avenue, you’re in a 40 zone. Before you’ve left the tunnel on Parkes way, the off-ramp is a 40 zone. Despite the fact that you’re not actually anywhere close to where the work will be happening. And people wonder why drivers don’t obey roadworks speed limits…

I’d be interested to know where exactly the new traffic lights will be installed too. They’re not shown on the map.

So there’s going to be more traffic through that intersection, once the Nishi Bldg is complete, but they’re taking a lane away.

I guess that makes sense to someone.

If someone would care to explain, that’d be great.
