The ACT Government completed a study of the traffic conditions on Sternberg Crescent and surrounding streets in Wanniassa in 2014. The aim of this project was to identify traffic concerns in the area, develop options for improvement and recommend a program of works.
The study involved a technical analysis of traffic speed, volume and crash data in the area. Consultation with the local community was also an important part of the study. A traffic management scheme was then finalised to improve traffic conditions in the area.
The priority traffic management measures were implemented on several streets in 2015, 2017 and 2018 to mitigate concerns regarding speeding, pedestrian safety and intersection safety.
These measures included a pedestrian refuge island and traffic signals on Sternberg Crescent, speed humps on Wheeler Crescent, Langdon Avenue, Fincham Crescent and Longmore Crescent, and modifications to the roundabouts at the Longmore Crescent intersections with Sainsbury Street and Gaunson Crescent.
The streets in Wanniassa will continue to be monitored, and traffic conditions reviewed prior to any further implementations.
Any future implementations will be done in consultation with directly affected residents.
