Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 6 Hansard (13 May) . .
MR CORBELL: It is not, Madam Speaker.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Smyth.
MR SMYTH: Minister, will you order Royalla to release this data so that taxpayers can view it, as they can for generators in every other state?
MR CORBELL: I refer Mr Smyth to my earlier answer to Ms Lawder's original question.
MR COE: My question is to the Minister for Roads and Parking. Minister, can you please update the Assembly on what progress there has been with regard to the Barton Highway roundabout signalisation tender?
MR GENTLEMAN: I thank Mr Coe for his question. Yes, the Barton Highway roundabout at Gungahlin Drive is being worked on as we speak. The directorate has been putting in place surveying measures and we will be looking at the results from the surveying measures with a view to implementing traffic calming measures at the roundabout.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Minister, have there been any delays with the tender, and when will the contract be issued?
MR GENTLEMAN: I do not think there are any delays. We are just working through the process. As soon as the results come forward, we will be issuing contracts.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Wall.
MR WALL: Minister, when will these works be finished?
MR GENTLEMAN: That will be subject to the contractual arrangements and the price that comes back.
MR WALL: Minister, why was a signalised roundabout chosen over other upgrade options?
MR GENTLEMAN: We found that engineers have reported that signalised roundabouts provide better and safer operational values for those particular areas. We have looked at the evidence that has been provided from the work that we have done in similar circumstances—down in Tuggeranong, for example—and found that signalisation at the appropriate times is the best way of managing the traffic through the roundabouts.
