Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 2 Hansard (20 March) . . Page.. 711..


• workmanship defects which are typically localised and affect a small proportion of a treated area.

In both cases, the contractor is responsible for the cost of rectifying the defects.

In the past 12 months significant product failure has occurred at three sites: Bowen Drive Bridge, Townsend Street in Phillip and Bugden Avenue in Fadden. A total of 8,000 square metres was affected.

In the same time period, there were a total of 38 additional sites (totaling around 1,000 square metres) where remedial works were required to rectify localised workmanship problems.

In the 2012-13 road resurfacing program, a total of 604,700 square metres of roads were resurfaced. Every site is inspected in detail for defects by the contract superintendent. Defects identified and corrected affected 1.5% of the work undertaken.

In addition, protection work was recently undertaken by contractors at no cost to the Territory to protect new reseal which had begun to soften during recent extended periods of hot weather. Crushed rock was placed (and subsequently removed) to prevent more expensive defects from occurring. This took place at 20 sites.

Planning—Canberra Raiders lease variation

Mr Corbell (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Coe on Wednesday, 26 February 2014): I have not received any representations from Mr Rattenbury with regards to the Canberra Raiders application for the deconcessionalisation of the lease of block 5 section 30 Braddon.

Canberra—centenary

Ms Gallagher (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Smyth on Wednesday, 26 February 2014):

• $822,000 is the total variation between the December 2013 year-to-date budget and year-to-date actual results for Output 1.4, 'Coordinated Communications and Community Engagement', only part of which relates to the Centenary of Canberra program.

• Where there is a rollover of appropriation from one year to the next, there is an equal saving in the year from which the funds were transferred - across the two years impacted by a rollover there are no savings.

• The Centenary of Canberra program has been managed within its approved budget, and there is no planned expenditure for 2014 15.
