Temporary road closures affecting RSPE

I would like to update you in advance of some temporary road closures that will occur across the Acton campus. In the upcoming weeks, there will be three planned road closures. These road closures are for works associated with the Acton Ridge Axis project and will result in new pedestrian crossings being constructed. These works are required to upgrade the standard, quality and safety of the existing pedestrian crossings at these points on the roads.

The road closures are being planned to take place in two five-week programs of work. Two road closures will happen concurrently and be completed before works commence on a further and final road closure.  The following outlines the roads/areas of impact. No other roads or driveways are impacted and access to all carparks will be unaffected. Traffic Management Plans have been prepared and approved by ACT Government Transport Canberra City Services. It is our intention to keep the road closures to a minimum in accordance with the below schedule, however significant weather events (if they occur) may inadvertently cause delays. We will ensure you are kept updated if this does occur.

Fellows Road at Sullivans Creek – closure 17 May - 1 July 2019

Fellows Road closed from Sullivans Creek road up to and including the existing pedestrian crossing to the east side of the bridge.No impacts to car parks on either side of the road at ANU College of Law or Fellows Oval car park. 

Balmain Crescent at the pedestrian crossing near the Grocer on Balmain – closure 17 May - 1 July 2019

Balmain Crescent closed in the area immediately surrounding the existing pedestrian crossing.Parking bays at Grocer on Balmain unaffected, grocer deliveries and turn-around to be established at the Gardens & Grounds service yard.

Garran Road at the pedestrian crossing near Hugh Ennor building – closure 2 July - 12 August 2019

Garran Road from Fellows Road intersection up to and including pedestrian crossing near Hugh Ennor building.No impact to Graduate House parking or Hugh Ennor Building deliveries.

We appreciate this will cause some inconvenience for vehicular movements around campus. It is planned that the works will take place whilst leaving alternate routes open and accessible throughout the campus.

I would appreciate if you can please pass this information to your colleagues as required (the website will also be updated shortly).  If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Neill Daly, Associate Director – Projects for further information on 6125 0545 or neill.daly@anu.edu.au) or myself at any time.
