STAGE one of the light rail will change traffic conditions at two intersections along Northbourne Avenue from Monday.
Underboring and potholing work will take place at the intersections on Barry Drive and Cooyong Street, as well as Rudd Street and Bunda Street.
Mostly the work will be done between 8pm and 6am, Monday to Friday, as well as some day shifts during off-peak periods. Works are expected to be completed by December 2.
ACT government says: “During the works north bound traffic on Northbourne Avenue will not be able to turn right onto Cooyong Street while south bound traffic will not be able to turn right onto Barry Drive.
“The works on the Rudd Street and Bunda Street intersection will require the closure of the intersection across the median. This will mean traffic on Bunda Street and Rudd Street will not be able to turn right onto Northbourne Avenue. North bound traffic on Northbourne Avenue will not be able to turn right onto Bunda Street while south bound traffic will not be able to turn right onto Rudd Street.
“The works require a drilling rig and hydrovac truck. It is likely that local residents and businesses will hear some level of noise during these works.”
"The pace is leisurely. The emotional values are gently powerful (if that makes sense). It’s unlikely to lift your spirits but its purpose is more worthy than that." DOUGAL MACDONALD reviews the new movie "Little Woods".
