Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 2 Hansard (19 March) . . Page.. 528..

MR COE: Minister, what agencies collect data regarding cyclist safety? If there is more than one, is that data collated to form a holistic view of cyclist safety in the territory?

MR RATTENBURY: It is probably best, given the specific nature of the question, that I take that on notice. Certainly TAMS will have information. I imagine the police do. Through the health department I imagine there are records from people who arrive as a result of injuries. The transport safety section of Justice and Community Safety Directorate may well, as would the transport planning section of ESDD. There would be a range of places in government where I imagine there are sources of data.

MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.

MR COE: Minister, are you aware of any on-road cycle paths that are not adequate and are in need of reform in some form or another?

MR RATTENBURY: I cannot think of anything specific at the moment. There are areas, of course, where cycle lanes come to an end. My personal view is that that is not adequate. But that reflects the program the government has pursued for a number of years now, which is that as a road is resurfaced, and where space is available, for example, a cycle lane will be marked down. That is where people will experience, in places, a lane simply coming to an end rather mysteriously. That reflects that program that has been going on for a number of years. There are other places where there may well be danger spots, but I am not aware of any being brought to my specific attention recently.

Roads—speed and red light cameras

DR BOURKE: My question is to the Attorney-General. Attorney, could you please explain the purpose of the ACT road safety camera evaluation you announced recently to the Assembly?

MR CORBELL: I thank Dr Bourke for the question. I am very pleased to inform the Assembly on the steps the government is taking. This is the first time any government has looked comprehensively at the operation of the road safety camera network. The road safety camera network has now been in operation for over a decade.

Mr Coe: Any government? New South Wales did it. Victoria did it.

MR CORBELL: The first time here in the ACT.

Opposition members interjecting—

MADAM SPEAKER: Have you got a point of order, Dr Bourke?

Dr Bourke: Yes, I am having difficulty hearing the minister speak.

MADAM SPEAKER: Sorry, I did not hear what you said.
