Rivett shops—health and safety (Question No 138)

Mrs Jones asked the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, upon notice, on 8 August 2013 (redirected to the Minister for Health):

(1) What is the plan to keep the Rivett shops free from bird waste.

(2) In relation to the birds and the health concerns around their presence at Rivett shops, what is the plan to (a) manage and (b) remove or deter, the birds.

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

(1) Public Health Officers have attended the Rivett shops to assess the situation. I am advised that this is not a public health issue and as such is not covered by the Public Health Act 1997. However, Public Health Officers have been working with the manager of Rivett shops to devise a plan to manage the birds.

(2) Recommendations have been made to the manager of Rivett shops to install spikes on awning beams and above shop entries. The spikes are intended to prevent the birds from landing or roosting.

Roads—Horse Park Drive (Question No 139)

Mrs Jones asked the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, upon notice, on 8 August 2013 (redirected to the Acting Minister for Territory and Municipal Services):

(1) What is the rationale behind the duplication of only the section of Horse Park Drive between Francis Ford Boulevard and Gundaroo Drive.

(2) What are the plans to duplicate the remainder of Horse Park Drive.

(3) What is the time frame to duplicate Horse Park Drive.

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

(1) The Territory and Municipal Services Directorate (TAMS) is currently designing the upgrade of the intersection where Horse Park Drive meets Katherine Avenue. As part of this design process, TAMS has considered the future duplication of Horse Park Drive in the vicinity of this intersection. The design for the upgrade has been funded and completed. A bid for construction funding will be prepared by TAMS for consideration in the 2014/15 budget.
