Roads ACT Director Tony Gill is explaining that with the Spofforth Street speed pillows directing traffic every other way in Holt he’s going to try and figure out what’s going on there:
The ACT Government recently completed a post-construction evaluation of the effectiveness of the speed cushions on Spofforth Street in Holt, Director, Roads ACT, Tony Gill, said today.
“The evaluation showed that while the primary objective of reducing the speed on Spofforth Street was achieved, residents expressed concerns about possible traffic impacts on nearby streets,” Mr Gill said.
“Following this feedback from the community, the ACT Government will now assess the traffic conditions on Messenger Street, Trickett Street and Beaurepaire Crescent in Holt.”
CARDNO has been commissioned to undertake this study with a view to improve the safety and amenity of residents on these streets. This study will include a technical component analysing speed, volume and crash data, as well as seek the views of residents of Holt and Macgregor.
“A questionnaire will be sent to residents of Holt and Macgregor this week. It will also be available via the ACT Government’s Time to Talk website.”
