Roads—parking—petition No 128

The response read as follows:

The ACT Government notes the petition submitted by the petitioners, tabled by Dr Chris Bourke MLA on the 21 February 2012 and makes the following comments:

* A similar concern about the public parking at Yarrabi Pond in Gungahlin and particularly n the vicinity of the Curves Fitness Club had already been brought to the attention of the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate by the Gungahlin Community Council in a meeting in November 2011.

* As a result of this earlier request and after a meeting on site with the management of Curves Fitness Club and an officer of the Gungahlin Community Council, Roads ACT undertook to assess the feasibility and cost of providing additional parking.

* Two options to provide additional parking in the median of Nellie Hamilton Avenue have been assessed and preliminary concepts developed for consultation with the Gungahlin Community Council. This was presented to the council on 11 April 2012.

* The indicative cost of providing an additional 50 spaces has been estimated at $300,000.

* Based on feedback from the community consultation, the options will be refined and a business case will be developed to support a funding bid in a future Capital Works program.
