Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 3 Hansard (22 March) . . Page.. 1255..


Roads—drug testing

Mr Corbell (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Hanson on Tuesday, 21 February 2012): As announced to the media on Friday 17 February 2012, ACT Policing aims to conduct 750 tests in the 2011-2012 financial year, increasing to 2000 per year thereafter.

These figures are estimates only and reflect the fact that Random Roadside Drug Testing is still maturing as a capability.

ACTION bus service—Nightrider service

Ms Gallagher (in reply to a supplementary question by Ms Le Couteur on Thursday, 23 February 2012): The 2010-11 Nightrider advertising campaign had a budget of $20,000. This campaign essentially focussed on print media.

Following an evaluation of the 2010-11 service, it was decided to increase the advertising budget for the 2011-12 Nightrider service to $60,000. The resultant advertising campaign included television, radio and print media as well as prominent signage around bus interchanges and in various popular establishments. This increased investment, as well as the reduced fares, contributed to the significant increase in use of the Nightrider service.

Duffy—stormwater

Ms Gallagher (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Coe on Thursday, 23 February 2012): I confirm that no stormwater improvement works are being progressed as a result of your representations. Stormwater construction works adjacent to Nudurr Drive associated with the Crace development have now been completed.

TAMS is currently undertaking a forward design of an upgrade to Nudurr Drive which includes stormwater improvements. These works will be considered for inclusion in a future capital works program.

Industrial relations—work safety

Mr Corbell (in reply to a supplementary question by Ms Hunter on Tuesday, 6 December 2011): The Work Safety Commissioner has advised me that neither he nor his staff have been denied access to the Enlarged Cotter Dam Project site.

Belconnen Way roadworks

Ms Gallagher (in reply to a question and a supplementary question by Mr Smyth on Thursday, 23 February 2012): An officer from TAMS has inspected the site and the defects were found to be not directly related to any of the works as mentioned. The defects are all maintenance related issues which have been made worse due to poor weather conditions. Roads ACT is prioritising ongoing maintenance activities and will address these defects as soon as practicable.

The works were completed within budget, within the program schedule completion time and in accordance with the appropriate standards.
