Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 8 Hansard (5 August) . .
MR BARR: As soon as possible. I am very keen to ensure that Canberrans have the opportunity to access the full range of services that are available in other Australian cities.
Roads—Horse Park Drive
MR COE: My question is to the Minister for Roads and Parking. The TAMS website, last updated in July 2013, advises that Roads ACT commissioned Indesco to produce preliminary sketch plans for the duplication of Horse Park Drive between Mulligans Flat Road and Gundaroo Drive. The 2015-16 ACT budget provides $17.1 million for Horse Park Drive duplication. However, no mention is made of the duplication between Mulligans Flat Road and Gundaroo Drive. Minister, can you please clarify what work will be completed with this budgeted money?
MR GENTLEMAN: I thank Mr Coe for his question. The intention is to ease traffic congestion in Gungahlin, so in that budget project we allocated over $10 million over three financial years commencing in 2014-15 for the introduction of approaches to Barton Highway and the roundabouts and signalised movements from that intersection at Gundaroo as well. In regard to Horse Park Drive, I will have to take some of that on notice as I do not have it in my notes.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mr Coe.
MR COE: Minister, what has happened to the preliminary sketch plans? Have they been completed, how much did they cost and what work will be undertaken as a result of the $17.1 million you announced in June?
MR GENTLEMAN: I will take that on notice as well and come back with a full answer.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Minister, what forward design has been done for the duplication which you recently announced?
MR GENTLEMAN: I do not have the forward design details with me here either, so I will take that on notice and come back with the answer.
MADAM SPEAKER: Supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Minister, which parts of the road will be duplicated?
MR GENTLEMAN: Again, I do not have those designs with me here, but I will come back to the Assembly and provide the answer.
MS PORTER: My question is to the Minister for Housing. Minister, could you update the Assembly on recent milestones in the housing portfolio and how they support equality and inclusion in the Canberra community?
