Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2009 Week 15 Hansard (10 December) . . Page.. 5808..


ACTION bus service—park 'n' ride facilities

(Question No 433)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice, on 19 November 2009:

What are the Government's plans in relation to a park 'n' ride and cycle 'n' ride facility at the Gungahlin Town Centre.

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

Park and ride facilities are best located along public transport corridors where bus services are frequent rather than within town centres. Recently, TAMS undertook a survey that included a question to identify people's preference in locating park and ride facilities. The survey response received from about 500 people indicated more than 80% support for locating the facilities along transport corridors rather than at the town centres.

Accordingly, TAMS has been undertaking a feasibility study of establishing park and ride and bike and ride facilities along the Flemington road corridor where high frequency bus services are currently available. Details of this study are yet to be finalised.
