In order to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists the current roundabout at the Mirrabei Drive/Gundaroo Drive/Anthony Rolfe Avenue intersection is to be replaced with a signalised intersection. There are three main active travel community routes and an increasing demand for pedestrian and cyclist access to the nearby Yerrabi Pond District Park which have prompted the need to replace the existing roundabout with a safer alternative.
The project will remove the roundabout, widen the four vehicle approaches to the intersection and provide a four way signalised intersection with full pedestrian provisions. The project also includes the construction of a second southbound lane on Mirrabei Drive from Paul Coe Crescent to Gundaroo Drive. This lane provides the additional capacity that is required during the morning peak for vehicles turning right onto Gundaroo Drive.
The traffic lights became operational in October 2018.
Note there are numerous projects on arterial and major roads in Gungahlin that are scheduled to be under construction at the same time and the ACT Government would like the thank motorists for their patience while these important works are undertaken.
