Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 10 Hansard (23 September) . . Page.. 4507..


Roads—safety initiatives (Question No 1045)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice, on 25 August 2010:

Can the Minister provide details of expenditure on road safety initiatives across the ACT, by location, for each year from 2002 to 2010 to date.

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

This question is too broad to answer specifically, as it is difficult to separate road safety initiatives from other capital, traffic management and maintenance works which have multiple objectives, including safety aspects. For example, installing a roundabout can have both road safety and traffic management benefits.
