Roads—safety signs

(Question No 1880)

Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 14 February 2008:

In relation to the ACT Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan and the Minister's recent announcement on 6 February regarding the installation of thirty Street Safety signs across the ACT, what (a) crash data and rationale was used to determine these locations and (b) is the total cost of the signs and installation.

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

(a) Roads ACT engaged a consultant engineering firm to recommend specific locations for the new road safety signs. Although crash data was not used to determine these locations, messages on the signs reflect issues identified in the ACT Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan. Appropriate sign locations were determined based on the message on the sign - for example, fatigue messages have been placed on the main highways from Canberra, and distraction messages have been placed on high volume arterial roads.

(b) I am advised that the total cost of the signs and installation was approximately $27,400.
