In early 2021 we started construction on the Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade.
BMD is our construction partner delivering the project, which is expected to be complete by 2023.
The Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade includes:
The upgrade will reduce congestion in peak periods to provide more reliable travel times, improves safety and makes walking and cycling around the community safer.
Use the Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade interactive map to find out more details about the project.
Consultation started in late 2018 and over the last 2 years we’ve listened to your feedback. We’ve made a number of key design changes across the project including new U-turns, even more walking and cycling connections at key locations, and improved bus priority at key locations.
We also heard your feedback about the new intersection at Main Road and Fitzsimons Lane. You told us:
Our final design improves safety and reduces congestion in both the morning and afternoon peak, keeping locals and commuters moving.
Further design changes include reducing the number of lanes, which will enable us to retain more trees.
We’ll keep consulting you throughout the build to ensure as many trees and community features are retained as possible.
