(Question No 1693)

Mr Mulcahy asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 25 September 2007:

(1) When was the decision made to introduce traffic counting devices into O'Malley;

(2) Are the results of the investigation known; if so, what are they;

(3) Does the ACT Government have plans to improve the exit points of O'Malley by making it safer for vehicles to exit the suburbs.

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

(1) Roads ACT, as part of a regular program of monitoring suburban streets, carry out traffic count surveys on suburban roads every three years. Streets in O'Malley were recently surveyed as part of this program.

(2) Tyagarah Street carries around 2,260 vehicles per day while Numeralla Street carries around 1,540 vehicles per day. These results are within the guidelines for streets of this type.

(3) The intersections of Tyagarah Street/Hindmarsh Drive and Numeralla Street/Yamba Drive (exit points to O'Malley) are currently ranked outside the top 300 intersections in terms of crash history and priority for improvements. The ACT Government has therefore no immediate plans to change the current arrangements at these locations.
