QuoteDesign for the works on Starke Street have been completed. The intersection has been redesigned to have an additional lane to provide safer right turn movements out of Starke Street onto Southern Cross Drive. The redesign of Starke Street does not preclude the possibility of the signalisation of the intersection in the future. Works for Starke Street intersection upgrade are due to be commenced on completion and opening of the works on Florey Drive, due to be late September 2012. Works for this intersection are estimated to be completed in December 2012.

Having a quick look - yes they do appear to be making provision for bus stops near the Southern Cross/Moyes intersection. However I do not agree that they are poorly sited, but they are entirely unnecessary if the 318/319 route were to continue to use Moyes Cres.
Quote from: ajw373 on November 22, 2012, 11:46:44 AMAlso why do you think the site of these stops is ok?
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on November 22, 2012, 12:29:54 PMTo put it another way: where else can the stop go? (I assume you have no concerns about the east-bound side of Southern Cross). The stop cannot be located before the Moyes Cres intersection as it is too steep and it cannot be located any closer to Florey Drive. The best spot is just after the Moyes Cres intersection where the ground is level.Looking at the AECOM study, the proposal is to alter the lane markings on Southern Cross Drive. A Form One Lane will occur further up - after Chave St with a left turn only lane into Moyes Cres and a painted traffic island immediately before the bus stop (see page 60).
Quote from: ajw373 on January 07, 2013, 07:12:15 PMLike most road projects the new merge is a dogs breakfast. For starters they moved the merge but haven't moved the sign, nor do they have a sign advising of changed traffic conditions. Really bad considering the merge is just after a slight crest in the road making it hard to see if there are other cars out. Sent a comment to the fix my roads website and received a reply they would send someone out to look. That was about 3 weeks ago now.

Seen a few cases where cars in the right think they have right of way and don't give room to vehicles in front but in the left.
Quote from: Bus 400 on January 07, 2013, 11:19:30 PMMost outdoor workers are on holidays over January. So unless some ultra urgent work is required, nothing gets down. For most in the these industries, January is the only chance they have. So let them enjoy it.

Quote from: ajw373 on January 08, 2013, 06:30:33 AMThey should have moved the sign or put up a changed traffic conditions sign when they painted the road. It isn't brain surgery.
