Australian Capital Territory
Indesco was engaged by Territory and Municipal Services (TAMS) to prepare a Feasibility Study for Kuringa Drive and Owen Dixon Drive intersection augmentation and shared path connection to Barton Highway.
Kuringa Drive is a two lane Arterial road connecting Fraser and Spence to the Barton Highway. Owen Dixon Drive is a minor collector road connecting William Slim Drive to Kuringa Drive. These two roads currently form an unsignalised T intersection. The investigation formed part of TAMS Blackspot program. As part of this report, Indesco considered a number of different options to upgrade the intersection to achieve an acceptable Level Of Service (LOS) for 2021 design traffic, reduce the common types of crashes, minimise impact on existing infrastructure and make provision for the future duplication of Kuringa Drive.
Currently a concrete path exists on the west side of Owen Dixon Drive that varies in width from 1m to 2m. On the west of Barton Highway is an existing 2.5m wide asphaltic concrete shared path. As part of this report, Indesco considered different options for the alignment of the 2.5m wide shared path to provide connectivity from Owen Dixon Drive to Barton Highway.
