Project background

The intersection of Tompsitt Drive and Lanyon Drive in Jerrabomberra is located on one of the major access routes into the Australian Capital Territory.

This intersection features a roundabout with dual lanes on each approach and a left slip lane on the west bound approach. The intersection is currently performing poorly with motorists experiencing traffic delays and queuing, particularly during peak times.

In March 2015, the NSW Government announced $5 million in funding towards improvements at this intersection.

To determine the most effective design for the improvements Roads and Maritime Services will carry out investigations including traffic modelling, consideration of traffic growth in the area and geotechnical surveys.

Project benefits

  • Reduce the significant queuing being experienced by motorists during peak times
  • Reduce traffic delays for motorists travelling through the intersection
  • Improved road safety at this intersection.

Next steps

Roads and Maritime will keep the community updated as the project progresses.
