ACTION bus service—student fares

(Question No 224)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice, on 17 June 2009:

(1) How much revenue did ACTION receive from tertiary students that bought school student fares in (a) 2007-08 and (b) 2008-09 to date.

(2) How much additional revenue does ACTION forecast for 2009-10 through measures forcing tertiary students to buy concession fares rather than school student fares.

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

1. It is not possible to determine precisely how much revenue is received from the purchase of school student tickets by tertiary students. A school student bus ticket can be purchased by any student. The use of the ticket on the bus is controlled by the driver who may ask for student identity. The ticketing system does not record whether the student is a tertiary, secondary or primary student.

2. $112,000.

Roads—footpaths

(Question No 225)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 17 June 2009:

(1) What was the cost of repairing the foot path between Bowman Street and Collicott Circuit in Macquarie.

(2) Did the Government obtain any financial contribution to this footpath; if so, how much.

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

1. $22,945.00 excluding GST.

2. No.

Roads—nature strips

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 17 June 2009:

(1) How much will, or has, the reinstatement of a grassed nature strip on Manuka Circle between Oxley Street and Currie Crescent cost, including minor ripping or rotary hoeing, the import of topsoil and the seeding of dry land grasses.
