Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2014 Week 7 Hansard (5 August) . .
works. The works began in September 2013 and they are currently nearing completion. The road is expected to be open to traffic in September 2014. However, the final phase of asphalt works is planned for November 2014. That is due to needing warmer weather to ensure that the quality of pavement is achieved.
There are a range of benefits arising from stage 1. These include the duplication of Erindale Drive between Ashley Drive and Sternberg Crescent, the installation of part-time traffic metering signals on Sternberg Crescent at the intersection with Erindale Drive, the signalisation of Ashley Drive at the intersection with McBryde Crescent, an additional slip lane on Erindale Drive southbound into Sternberg Crescent, and improvements to the shared path network connecting the suburbs of Gowrie and Monash with the Erindale group centre.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.
MR SMYTH: Minister, when will the section of Erindale Drive between Ashley Drive and Sternberg be completed?
MR RATTENBURY: Erindale Drive between Ashley Drive and Sternberg? If I understood Mr Smyth correctly, they are the ones I was just referring to. The road is due to be opened to traffic in September this year, with the subsequent asphalt works in November due to warmer weather. If I have misunderstood you geographically, Mr Smyth, I am happy to come back to you on notice.
Mr Smyth: How can it open in September if you are doing the asphalt in October?
MR RATTENBURY: Upgraded surface.
MADAM SPEAKER: No conversation! A supplementary question, Ms Berry.
MS BERRY: What are some of the other transport infrastructure projects that were funded in the 2014-15 budget that will benefit the residents of Tuggeranong?
MR RATTENBURY: I will take that question on notice and provide the full details to Ms Berry.
Ms Gallagher: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.
MADAM SPEAKER: Pursuant to the provisions of standing order 8, I have revoked the appointment of Mr Gentleman as an Assistant Speaker and nominated Dr Bourke as an Assistant Speaker. I present the following paper:
Pursuant to the provisions of standing order 8, I—
1. revoke the nomination of Mr Gentleman as an Assistant Speaker; and

Given under my hand on 31 July 2014.
