Residents of the Chandler Street Altitude building in Belconnen have recently experienced an increase in near accidents around the exit and entry of the residents’ multi-storey car park as a result of the ACT Government’s recent decision to install 8 new parallel car parks on Emu Bank.

Residents no longer have any visibility of oncoming traffic as a result of these spaces obscuring cars travelling down Emu Bank in both directions, making it extremely dangerous to leave the car park.

With around three hundred apartments using this multi-storey car park, and only 8 parallel car parks on the street causing these safety issues, it’s clear that the increased risk of a car accident clearly outweighs the benefiting cars using these spaces.

Applications have been lodged with Fix My Street over 1.5 months ago, although no resolution has been provided.

Action: We call on Chris Steel, Minister for Roads and Active Travel, to reverse the installation of these on street parallel car parks and restore the original design of Emu Bank, with the inclusion of a shielded lane at the Altitude car park exit.

If you have any dashboard footage of near misses, please share them with us by posting to the community page @AltitudeBelconnen on Facebook.
