I thought I’d let people know that traffic is a real mess in Lanyon at the moment. The ACT government has closed Tharwa Drive to put a new sewer main in, and that means that pretty much anything south of Woodcock Drive in Tuggeranong is a mess.
I just drove from Erindale Drive down to my house in Gordon, and traffic was banked up from the intersection of Drakeford Drive and Woodcock Drive back to nearly Isabella Drive. I imagine its worse now, it wasn’t 5pm when I attempted it.
I live in a part of Gordon where you can only leave the suburb if you go onto Woodcock Drive. I look forward to the next three weeks of not being able to get out of the suburb at peak times.
I can’t imagine why they thought closing Tharwa Drive was a good idea. Why can’t they do the work one lane at a time like they do everywhere else?
