THE ACT government has signed a contract with Abergeldie Contractors for the raising of London Circuit, with construction to start later this year.

Around 60,000 cubic metres of fill will be used to raise London Circuit by six metres to form an at-grade intersection with Commonwealth Avenue.

This construction will allow for the light rail extension into Woden.

Major disruptions are to be expected from early 2023 when demolition commences on the existing Commonwealth Avenue bridges across London Circuit.

The ACT government will install traffic lights at the Coranderrk Street roundabout on Parkes Way, and on the northern side of Vernon Circle.

New pedestrian signals and a path around City Hill will also be built, linking Edinburgh Avenue and Constitution Avenue, and two existing cloverleaf ramps will be removed, with alternatives routes vie Edinburgh Avenue and Constitution Avenue.
