Roads

Capital work on roads includes minor and major safety and traffic improvements, new street lighting, road resurfacing, major rehabilitation works and from time to time new roads.

Darwin’s road network is 442km long. We allocate funds for road resurfacing, reconstruction and new works to ensure the road network meets the comfort, safety and aesthetic needs and expectations of all road users and the community as a whole.

Road Safety Improvements  

We are committed to improving the safety of Darwin’s road network through partnerships with the Federal Government and NTG through Black Spot and Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) programs. This continues to deliver road safety improvements for the community.

Holy Family School Vehicle Entry Works

Calytrix road works

To ease traffic congestion along Calytrix Road, the City of Darwin are modifying the entrance to the Holy Family Catholic Primary School.

Works will begin on Monday 23 September 2019 with working hours to be Monday to Saturday 7am to 4:30pm.

Tambling Terrace Pedestrian Crossing - Wanguri

Speed Limit Reduction to 50 km/hr

actual pedesterian crossing Tampling TerraceProposed pedestrian crossing Tampling Terrace

Recent investigations along Tambling Terrace revealed that pedestrians, particularly primary school children, were having difficulty crossing the road due to the volume of traffic using the road. To provide better pedestrian connectivity between the suburbs of Wanguri and Lyons, Council recently installed a pedestrian (zebra) crossing on Tambling Terrace near the intersection of Wanguri Terrace and Danimila Terrace.

To align with road safety requirements, the speed limit of Tambling Terrace has been reduced from 60km/h to 50km/h between 23 Tambling Terrace and Lee Point Road. Recent traffic counts undertaken along the road reveal that this speed limit aligns with the current operating speed of this section of road.

Please be reminded that when travelling towards a pedestrian (zebra) crossing, you must drive at a speed so that you can stop safely. At a pedestrian (zebra) crossing you must give way to any pedestrian on the crossing and not overtake another vehicle which has stopped at the crossing.

For further information regarding the construction of the project please contact City of Darwin’s Capital Works Project Officer Antonios Yiannakos.
