Territory And Municipal Services have started the ball rolling for upgrades to the western end of Southern Cross Drive.
A $220,000 contract has been awarded to local company Brown Consulting for the design and supervision of a project to improve a number of intersections in West Belconnen.
“The project includes various intersection improvements at Southern Cross Drive/Florey Drive as well as Southern Cross Drive/Starke Street,” said Tony Gill, Director, Roads ACT.
“This will better manage the increased traffic volumes in the area created by the development of West Macgregor by easing congestion and improving safety.
“The design phase is part of a $1.5 million investment by the ACT Government which will see each of these existing T intersections upgraded to roundabouts. Other improvements will include upgraded pedestrian and cyclist facilities.
Construction to start early 2012.
