CHARTWELL / BENTLEY ROUNDABOUT
2018 - 2019
The existing 'T' junction of Bentley Avenue and Chartwell Avenue provides poor pedestrian facilities and has an adverse reported crash record. TES investigated several different options for upgrading the junction, including undertaking traffic modelling for a raised island upgrade, roundabout and signals, with the former two options preferred.
TES completed a Safe System Assessment of three alternative options for improving safety at the junction, and the roundabout option was considered most closely aligned with Safe System principles of design.
We prepared a Scheme Assessment Report for upgrading the junction to a new roundabout, with a construction cost estimated at around $300k.
The roundabout design was approved during a consultation process, and TES is currently involved in preparing detailed design plans (2019).
