Civic-street furniture

(Question No 374)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 15 October 2009:

(1) What was the cost of the new street furniture in Civic that was installed this year.

(2) Has the installation been completed; if so, why was only some of the street furniture replaced instead of all of it; if not, when will it be completed.

(3) Why was the street furniture replaced, and what are the advantages of the new street furniture over the old.

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

The cost of Street Furniture installed this year to date is $495,000.

(2) Installation is complete in Garema Place and most of City Walk. Sections of Petrie Plaza and Ainslie Avenue are due for completion in February 2010.


Street furniture in the remaining areas of the city will be replaced as funds allow through the budget process or as commercial developments undertake installations as off-site works.

(3) The Canberra Central Design Manual, which includes a suite of quality street furniture, is part of a larger Government initiative designed to bring vitality to Canberra City. The replacement of street furniture in line with this manual will progressively integrate Canberra's Central Business District public realm to deliver a distinctive and high standard of consistent design.
