Questions without notice taken on notice
Ms Gallagher (in reply to a question by Mr Coe on Thursday, 8 December 2011): I have asked Roads ACT to conduct a detailed traffic investigation on Kerrigan Street near the intersection of Winder Place and Lhotsky Street. The investigation will be completed before the end of April 2012.

Facilities that are provided at St Thomas Aquinas Primary School in Lhotsky Street include a 40km/h school zone, pedestrian warning signs and a children crossing.
