Roads—crash database

MR COE: I have another question for the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services. It is in regard to an answer given in a statement by the minister on Tuesday, whereby the minister advised that problems with the crash database are the cause of delays in answering questions on notice. Minister, what is the nature of the problems with the database?

MR RATTENBURY: I will have to take that question on notice, Mr Coe.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: I imagine it will have to be taken on notice. Is it true that the database was designed for engineering purposes and has evolved into a crash database?

MR RATTENBURY: Unfortunately I do not have that information to hand, Mr Coe, but I am happy to provide you with a detailed response. Once the question on notice comes through as well I would imagine some further details will be provided in that response to you.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Minister, could problems with extracting data from the database have led to incorrect information being used to assess road upgrades?

MR RATTENBURY: I certainly do not have any information at this point that indicates that being the case, Mr Smyth. But I, again, will seek further information for you.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.

MR SMYTH: Minister, were speed cameras placed in locations based on incorrect crash data?

MR RATTENBURY: The responsibility for the placement of speed cameras sits with the Attorney-General's department through traffic regulation. I am afraid I do not have any information on that, Mr Smyth.

MS PORTER: My question is to the minister for education. I refer the minister to the successful opening of the Neville Bonner Primary School and the Franklin Early Childhood School. Minister, can you inform the Assembly whether these projects were delivered on time and on budget?

MS BURCH: I thank the member for her question. I can confirm for the member, who I know has a great interest in education and its ability to transform people's lives,
