Quote from: Canberra TimesThe much-maligned Gungahlin Drive Extension has a new problem: road signs over the Glenloch Interchange that are too small for people to read and send drivers in the wrong direction.One of the signs also has the incorrect name of the arboretum.Another confuses drivers travelling north at the interchange. Two different arrows point to Parkes Way and on to the airport ' one pointing left which is the correct exit and one pointing straight ahead which sends people the wrong way on to Gungahlin Drive.The letter height on the signs is also half of what it should be for that driving environment where there are multiple lanes and speed of 80km/h. The upshot is that the signs on three gantries over the road will have to be replaced, forcing the closure of the interchange for three nights next week.Roads ACT director Tony Gill said a local design company which produced the signs had accepted responsibility for the errors and would replace them at its cost ' expected to be between $20,000 and $30,000.
