Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 3 Hansard (10 April) . . Page.. 1021..

(4) What is the total amount of revenue collected from fines as a result of these offences.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

ACT Policing has advised that information specifically identifying the use of trail bikes in motor vehicle offences is not a feature of current Australian Federal Police record management systems. Investigating each of the thousands of traffic infringement notices issued during 2012, 2013 and 2014 (YTD) would require a significant number of police resources. Where a motor cycle is identified as being involved in a traffic offence, further manual investigation of the make and model would have to be undertaken to identify it as a trail bike. As such, I am unwilling to authorise ACT Policing to divert significant resources to obtain the information required.

Transport—light rail (Question No 255)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, upon notice, on 20 March 2014:

(1) What is the updated cost of construction of the Capital Metro light rail system.

(2) What is the current timeline for the commencement and completion of construction.

(3) How much money has been spent on the light rail project to date.

(4) What are the projected operating costs of the light rail system.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) The updated cost of construction is subject to government consideration.

(2) It is anticipated that a construction contract would be awarded by the second quarter of 2016, with construction commencing the same year. It is currently not known when the construction phase will be complete. This will be guided by the industry engagement/market sounding.

(3) The following money has been spent by the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate on light rail:

2011/12 $1,077,000 2012/13 $535,000 2013/14 $149,000

Capital Metro Agency was established on 1 July 2013 and as at 20 March 2014 has spent $2,205,000.

(4) Projected operating costs are subject to government consideration at this time.
