Paper and statement by minister
MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Minister for Health and Minister for Territory and Municipal Services): For the information of members, I present the following paper:
William Hovell Drive—Congestion—Analysis of data from daily vehicle counts dated May 2012.
I seek leave to make a short statement.
MS GALLAGHER: On 21 March 2012 the Assembly passed a motion requesting the government to provide data on traffic volumes and delays on William Hovell Drive over a seven-day period not affected by school holidays, together with an analysis of this data. I am pleased to table this information today. As members of the Assembly would know, there are a number of traffic lights on William Hovell Drive. This makes the collection of data relatively easy as traffic volumes are recorded on a continuous basis as vehicles travel through an intersection.
Traffic volumes passing through the intersection of William Hovell Drive and Bindubi Street have been collated over a seven-day period from the end of March
