The National Capital Authority is warning that they’re having a go at building a bridge over Parkes Way at the Russell Roundabout on Saturday and suggest finding another route:
The main temporary traffic diversions and arrangements will include:
— Traffic from the city-side to the airport will be diverted from the Anzac Parade / Parkes Way roundabout via Anzac Parade, Constitution Avenue and Russell Drive, before being reconnected to Morshead Drive.
— Traffic from the airport-side to the city will be diverted from the Morshead Drive / Russell Drive roundabout via Russell Drive, Constitution Avenue and Anzac Parade before being reconnected to Parkes Way.
— Parkes Way north-side, to the airport, will be fully closed, including the north-side of Kings Avenue on the Russell side.
— At the Russell roundabout, Kings Avenue will only have one left lane in, from Morshead Drive, and one left lane out to Parkes Way operating.
The changes apply from 6.30am to 8.00pm on Saturday 4 September.
UPDATE: No bridge collapse this week. The NCA now reports that they’ve deferred the concrete pour on the Russell Roundabout due to forecast bad weather.
