Road planning in a roundabout way

The construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Undoolya Road and Sturt Terrace completes an odd example of the management of traffic flow in Alice Springs. There are now four roundabouts in a row – one at every street corner – along Undoolya Road from Sturt Terrace at one end to the intersection of Stott Terrace and Grevillea Drive to the east, in a distance less than a kilometre, comments ALEX NELSON.

Engineers rule?

"This council shouldn't in any way, shape or form, question an engineer, we should take the advice as provided."

So said Councillor Chansey Paech on the issue of the proposed roundabout at the intersection of Undoolya Road and Sturt Terrace.

He also expressed his belief that "the majority" of people in "that street" – Sturt Terrace? – support the proposal, despite no clear evidence before him. Of the four responses the council's letter drop on the issue, three opposed the proposal (see previous report).

Cr Paech was picking up on the cues from council's Director of Technical Services Greg Buxton and CEO Rex Mooney. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
