Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2008-2009 Week 1 Hansard (9 December) . . Page.. 21..

  • The ACT Government announced on 23 July 2008 that it would fund the duplication of the Gungahlin Drive Extension over the next four years should it be returned to Government after the upcoming election.
  • Some additional work is already underway to provide a second southbound traffic lane on Caswell Drive and this work will be completed by Christmas 2008.
  • The detailed design and documentation of the Gungahlin Drive Extension duplication works will be tendered in September 2008 and construction tenders called in April 2009.
  • Construction contracts will be let in June 2009 and the duplication works will be completed by Christmas 2011 at the earliest. It should be noted that the duplication project includes nine major bridge structures and these will be packaged in a way to progress the work as quickly as possible. While the roadworks will have some impact on passing traffic, measures will be put in place to manage this and limit traffic disruption where possible, particularly during the peak periods.

By Mr Hargreaves (Minister for Territory and Municipal Services) (6th Assembly), dated 30 September 2008, in response to a petition lodged by Mr Mulcahy (Sixth Assembly) on 19 August 2008 concerning an intersection in O'Malley.

The terms of the response will be recorded in Hansard.


The response read as follows:


Mr Richard Mulcahy MLA on 19 August 2008 and makes the following comments:

  • Statistics on motor vehicle crashes are supplied to the Department of Territory and Municipal Services by the Australian Federal Police and indicate all reported crashes in the ACT. The ranking of intersections on the basis of crashes is the means used to identify locations with a poor crash history for possible upgrades. The intersection of Hindmarsh Drive with Tyagarah Street is currently ranked at 211th worst intersection in the ACT and the intersection of Yamba Drive and Numeralla Street is outside the worst 500 intersections in the ACT on the basis of crashes over the last two years.
  • In that context, the Department of Territory and Municipal Services has no immediate plans for upgrades at either of these intersections but will continue to monitor the situation for any changes that might occur.

By Mr Barr, Minister for Planning, dated 3 October 2008, in response to a petition lodged by Mr Pratt (Sixth Assembly) on 28 August 2008 concerning the proposed Canberra Technology City.
