Shane wants your thoughts on traffic management in Weston Creek and Tuggeranong

By johnboy - 15 November 2012 50

The new mayor Shane Rattenbury is getting stuck in to the job by seeking the public’s views on the vexed issue of traffic management on residential street in parts southern.

“These studies will examine traffic conditions and safety on local roads and provide residents the opportunity to express their views on how to improve their local streets,” Mr Rattenbury said.

“We want to ensure local streets are safe for drivers, but also that they are safe and welcoming neighbourhoods, where people can walk and cycle, and where children can play safely.

“One study will look at Streeton Drive between Hindmarsh Drive and Namatjira Drive, while two other separate studies will examine Tuggeranong streets, including Coyne Street, Clift Crescent, Hambidge Crescent and Heagney Crescent.

What’s Your opinion?

How about we set up road blocks so no bogans can leave Tuggeranong. Ever.

I really don’t get the whole Tuggeranong = bogans thing.
I’ve lived in various parts of Belconnen and the Inner North as well as more recently in Tuggeranong – frankly I don’t notice that much difference between the first and the last. Every Calwell has its Kippax and every Jamison its Erindale.

And will the questionnaires being delivered to households by this GREEN minister be on recycled paper AND carbon offset?

Will Shane’s staff be catching the bus to the community consultations?

What’s a GREEN doing in charge of the roads?

This just means speed camera on suburban streets.

If they have enough cars they might be worth it.

Nice to see they’re upgrading, civic, belconnen, parkes way. Northbourne – gungahlin with light rail.

Has anyone driven on the parkway yet?

When it rains you aqua plane like a bobsledder.

When its busy you have traffic everywhere.

When there is an accident its a 5-7 car pileup.

Adjacent to the parkway is the corridor left for Mass Transit or more lanes!

Government wont encourage any businesses to Tuggeranong except centrelink.
So say only 15% of tuggeranong has to travel into civic and back each day.
15k people doing 25km would be 300,000 km collectively per day.
Which is also the distance of the earth to the moon.

42k people in Gungahlin, if 15% went to civic thats 73,000km a day.

And so we have our first taste of Lord Rattenbury’s decision-making capability. No need for the hard calls expected of an elected (?) representative…just throw everything out for good ol’ public consultation. That way, we can duck and weave when Ministerial ‘accountability’ rears its head at Council Question Time.

How Canberran.

Getting from Simpson’s Hill to the park on Heagney and Deamer means crossing Heagney. Need an underpass.

How about we fix the arterial roads first such as Erindale Drive and Athllon Drive.

Because crash statistics don’t indicate that somebody is pranging into a rock wall, taking out a light pole for the thirteenth time, heading over an embankment or having head-ons on Erindale Drive and Athllon Dr. Want some motorsport action? Stand near the western end of Coyne St when it rains, cue Benny Hill, and wait. You won’t be waiting long.

Seriously, wtf do you people want? It’s an evidence-based approach to road safety, complete with community consultation, and you’re complaining?

Ashley, Isabella and Johnson drives to a lesser extent.

Then we can work on the rest.

+1. And I’ll raise you the stretch of Lanyon Drive between Cawell/Theodore.

Sorry KB, I think you are sadly mistaken if you think that the Green’s (correct punctuation) ‘traffic management’ equals ‘improving roads’.

Sadly i think you are right.

Narrow the roads, install lots of speed humps, then install an expensive electric light rail system which starts 30km away and heads in the opposite direction. That should ‘manage’ things nicely.
