Southern Cross Drive/Starke Street intersection signalisation

Project description

The intersection of Southern Cross Drive and Starke Street in Holt will be signalised to improve safety. This intersection is the primary entrance/exit point for the Kippax Group Centre with more than 300 vehicles per hour in peak periods. The installation of traffic signals and associated widening of the road will reduce queue lengths and accidents experienced at this key intersection, including improving safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

This project is funded jointly by the ACT Government and the Australian Government as part of the Shovel Ready Infrastructure Investment Program.

Key features:


Expected start date: early 2021
