(1) What is the scope of the current review and redesign of ACTION's network and timetables.

(2) How will the review be undertaken and does it involve any external expertise.

(3) What is the timing of the review and when are its results expected to be implemented.

(4) Is the redesign and its implementation occurring within the existing ACTION budget or will it require additional funding.

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

1. The review of ACTION's network and timetables focuses on 'Network 12' changes which are scheduled for introduction by the end of May 2012.

The Network 12 planning involves a relatively limited review of ACTION services, with the focus on the extension of services to newly developed parts of Gungahlin and Blue Rapid services from Belconnen Town Centre to Kippax.

The review also includes the improvement of other services, including those to Fyshwick, the ANU and the Canberra Hospital.

2. The review is being undertaken by the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate in consultation with the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate, in the context of the Transport for Canberra strategy. Advice received from external consultants on improving ACTION services formed the starting point of the review.

In addition, feedback from the community was sought throughout October and November 2011 and 146 items of correspondence were received. The feedback has been used to refine and improve the review recommendations.

3. The final review recommendations will be published shortly and it is expected that changes will be implemented by the end of May 2012.

4. Funding for Network 12 was provided in the 2011-12 Territory and Municipal Services Budget.
