Proposed safety improvements to Schwarz Crescent

Latest update

This project is now complete.

The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics and Alice Springs Town Council are looking at how to improve safety on the Stuart Highway at Schwarz Crescent.

Schwarz Crescent is the main access from the Stuart Highway to St Philips College and Anzac Hill. Pedestrians and vehicles do not get safe gaps in traffic to cross the Stuart Highway at this location. To address this, the Department commissioned a study to improve safety at Schwarz Crescent.
