Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 3 Hansard (10 March) . .
Roads—Copland drive bollards
(Question No 681)
Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Road Safety, upon notice, on 18 February 2016 (redirected to the Minister for Transport and Municipal Services):
(1) When were the bollards erected on Copland Drive on the approach to Ginninderra Drive.
(2) Why were the bollards erected.
(3) What was the cost.
(4) What public consultation took place.
Ms Fitzharris: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) Installation of the bollards commenced in mid-February 2016 and is programmed to be completed by the end of February. There has been a minor delay with the installation for the centre bollards due to the presence of rock.
(2) The bollards were erected to prevent illegal parking, which was causing major road safety issues from cars pulling out into traffic, to protect pedestrians crossing the busy road and to prevent damage to urban parkland.
(3) The cost of installation was sought through a competitive tender process from a panel of pre-approved suppliers. The winning tender cost is commercial-in-confidence as a requirement of the tender process.
(4) TAMS informed the adjacent BMX Club that the works were scheduled to commence. TAMS has been working with the BMX club to identify suitable alternative parking locations within the vicinity of the club.
Questions without notice taken on notice
Mr Corbell (in reply to a supplementary question by Ms Lawder on Thursday, 18 February 2016): It is not appropriate for the ACT Government to provide commentary on individual pricing elements of the Capital Metro light rail project, noting (a) such information is commercial in confidence, and (b) contracts have not yet been finalised with the Canberra Metro consortium. However, the cost of the larger trees is included within the $698 million (±5%) capital cost figure announced by ACT Government on 1 February 2016.
