(Question No 650)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice, on 21 September 2005:

(1) What bus services provide direct access to the Canberra Eye Hospital that has recently moved its premises to Wormald Street, North Symonston;

(2) If there are no bus services why not and will a service be implemented;

(3) Is it acceptable that the bus routes 35, 36, 38, 39 listed for the eye hospital can only drop patients on the other side of the Monaro Highway, making it near impossible for patients to access due to natural and unnatural hazards; if so, why;

(4) Is it acceptable that the two services that do run closer to the eye hospital (number 83 and the reverse route number 86) only run to and from the Woden interchange, forcing passengers to transfer buses at least once if they are coming from other regions; if so, why;
