Fitzsimons Lane Upgrade
Upgrading Fitzsimons Lane reduces congestion in peak periods and provides more reliable travel times, improves safety and boosts walking and cycling around the community. Prior to the upgrade, the roundabout was both a safety hazard and bottleneck for commuters, this upgrade addresses these key problems and makes the journey safer and less congested.
