Cycling and pedestrian infrastructure (Question No 1930)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 17 November 2011:

(1) In relation to walking and cycling infrastructure, can the Minister clarify what the relationship is between the allocated $3.6 million recurrent funding to increase bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure through the Labor-Greens Parliamentary Agreement and the $9.2 million allocated to walking, cycling and signage over four years for walking, cycling and signage described in Budget Estimates Hansard of 24 May 2011, p 808.

(2) How does this $9.2 million differ from the announcement of $9 million for the seven cycling projects including the city cycle loop last week.

(3) Is the additional $1.5 million allocated in Budget Paper 2011-12, p 82, part of the $9.2 million figure.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The $3.6 million recurrent funding covers the maintenance of the existing footpath and cyclepath network. The $9.2 million forms part of the Capital program which refurbishes and or upgrades walking and cycling facilities including the provision of improved signage.

(2) The $9.0 million announced to progress the seven priority cycling projects includes $4.2 million from the $9.2 million Capital program which had previously been unallocated to projects.

(3) No; the $1.5 million allocated in budget paper 2011-12, p 82 is in addition to the $9.2 million Capital program and is for the construction of cycling infrastructure associated with the Pearce Chifley community path project.

Children and young people—care and protection (Question No 1935)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Community Services, upon notice, on 7 December 2011:
