This is one of the most dangerous intersections in Canberra. It is use daily by hundreds of heavy trucks operating to and from the MLRMC and it is also on the very busy commuter connect road between the Monaro Highway and Erindale Drive. There have been fatal accidents at this location because the 80km speed limit is too high.

Soon there will be many more traffic movements with the establishment of the Southern Memorial Park cemetery and crematorium.

Another ACT government planning disaster in the making.
