A local hotspot for congestion is westbound traffic on Sinnamon Road in Jindalee, between Yallambee Road and the on-ramp to the Centenary Motorway. During peak periods, motorists traveling on Sinnamon Road towards the motorway, queue back across the bike lane and block the intersection. Due to the narrow width of the road, motorists wanting to turn right at the traffic lights to enter Sinnamon Park are also being caught in this traffic, increasing congestion and causing frustration.
In the recent budget handed down by Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner, I am pleased to announce that I have secured funds to develop a detailed design for a second lane along this section of Sinnamon Road. This first phase is critical to ensure the appropriate planning for this important connection.
The proposed design will focus on creating an additional lane, allowing right turning vehicles to have their dedicated space, separate from the left turning traffic entering the Centenary Motorway, while maintaining a dedicated bike lane. This will enhance the overall traffic flow, ultimately leading to a smoother riding and driving experience.
This initiative reflects the Schrinner Council’s commitment to reducing congestion and improving safety on our roads, by investing in key transportation infrastructure projects. As your local Councillor I am committed to getting you home sooner and safer by continuing to advocate for investment in our suburbs. Across the city we are taking action to reduce congestion, improve safety and traffic flow and build better transport networks to meet the needs of our growing city, now and into the future.
