Questions without notice taken on notice

Roads—resurfacing

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.

I am advised that in the last five year period the intersection of McDougall Street / Tillyard Drive had no reported crashes. I have now asked Roads ACT to conduct a speed survey on McDougall Street and to take further action if warranted.

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.

I have asked Roads ACT to conduct a speed survey at this location and to take further action if warranted.
