Roads—adopt a road program

(Question No 1634)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 21 August 2007:

(1) Has the 'Adopt a Road' program been cancelled; if so, (a) when and (b) why did it cease;

(2) If the program has been cancelled, have all 'adopters' been notified of the cessation of the cancellation of the program;

(3) If the program has not been cancelled, are there any plans to phase out the program.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Yes the 'Adopt a Road' program was cancelled; (a) it was terminated in December 2006 (b) it ceased due to declining levels of interest and other volunteer programs assuming a higher priority within a tight budget environment.

(2) At the time the decision was made to cease the program, there were believed to be 38 participating groups with only a few actively performing litter pick sessions. All these groups were sent a letter advising them of the decision and a certificate of appreciation for their involvement. It has since become apparent that there are additional participating groups who did not receive the original letter advising them of the termination or a certificate. Steps are now underway to send these groups the appropriate letters and certificates.

(3) NA.

(1) How often does ACT Roads conduct road safety inspections on Point Hut road;

(2) If there are inspections conducted, (a) when did regular inspections begin and (b) how long will inspections continue;

(3) Can the Minister supply details of all other ACT roads that undergo routine road safety inspections.
