Reminder: No U-turns at Wizard Street after near misses with light rail


Additional signage has been erected at the Flemington Road / Wizard Street traffic light intersection in Gungahlin to remind southbound motorists to be safe on our roads and not perform illegal U-turns.

This follows eight near misses since April 2019 that required light rail vehicles to apply the emergency break to avoid a major collision.

This National Road Safety Week it is important to highlight the need to follow road rules at intersections and to be aware of light rail vehicles.

It is important that everyone is vigilant when near light rail tracks whether you are a passenger, pedestrian, cyclist, e-scooter rider or motorist.

Motorists are not permitted to perform U-turns at traffic light intersections. In many locations undertaking a U-turn would conflict with other traffic movements and could be hazardous. At locations where U-turns are allowed signage is displayed at those particular areas advising motorists ‘U Turn permitted’.
