Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2009 Week 13 Hansard (12 November) . . Page.. 5023..

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

(1) 165.

(2) Roads ACT is continually looking to improve and expand the synchronisation of traffic lights. Roads ACT is in the process of purchasing the latest release of software that will help to determine the optimum synchronisation arrangements to minimise delays and stops.

(3) Roads ACT implements traffic lights control and synchronisation via the SCATS adaptive computer control system developed by RTA NSW. The policy is to provide progression for the major direction of traffic flow along arterial roads during peak periods. Outside peak periods the form of control depends on individual circumstances such as the primary role of the road in question, the total volume of traffic, the balance of traffic in the two directions, the relative values of through traffic against side road and turning traffic and the need to cater for pedestrian movements without undue delays.

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

(2) The types of signs installed are as follows:

    • large anodised aluminium signs welcoming visitors to Mt Ainslie;
