The dangers at the Hinder and Hibberson Street intersection in the Gungahlin Town Centre must be prioritised as a matter of urgency by Minister Shane Rattenbury, Member for Molonglo Giulia Jones said today.
“There have been 66 crashes at the Hinder and Hibberson Street intersection in the past seven years, including more this month, and I will be raising the issue in the Legislative Assembly today,” Mrs Jones said.
“In his response to my pressing of the issue earlier this year, Minister Rattenbury told me crash statistics at this intersection put it outside the top 100 similar intersections in the ACT. How bad does it have to get before this location gets any attention?
“I know from my time living in Gungahlin that there are major visibility issues at this intersection and that it’s seriously problematic for drivers.
“How many accidents have to occur at this intersection before Minister Rattenbury will act? People need to feel safe when travelling on Canberra’s roads,” Mrs Jones concluded.
