road closure

TAMS are warning of the impacts of their seemingly interminable Parkes Way road widening:

The ACT Government wishes to advise motorists and other road users that there will be temporary road closures along Lady Denman Drive and Clunies Ross Street on Tuesday 29 October 2013 from 9.30 am to 3.30 pm.

Lady Denman Drive will remain open to westbound traffic, however it will be closed to eastbound traffic between Forest Drive and Garryowen Drive. Access for local traffic will be maintained.

A section of Clunies Ross Street beneath the Parkes Way overpass will be closed. Traffic travelling westbound on Parkes Way can exit onto Lady Denman Drive but access will be blocked temporarily to Clunies Ross Street. Clunies Ross Street will remain open between Barry Drive and the Parkes Way on-ramp.

Two eastbound lanes of Parkes Way will also be closed throughout the day.

This whole project has been a farce. Whoever engaged the contractor re the bridge building should be sacked, or worse still, publicly named. So now we have a nice new three lane stretch, except for the bottleneck where one side of two bridges cannot be opened (even though the road is actually three lanes wide already, if you look closely at it).

I wonder if we’ll get to watch another concrete bridge pour fall down onto the road below…

So they are still working, because by the looks of it now they have finished one side all the workers seem to have gone MIA, especially on the bridge closest to the tunnel.
