Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2016 Week 3 Hansard (9 March) . .
needs to be undertaken across the length of the site over the course of the project, so it may be that work is underway on one end of the site while the entire site needs to remain not open to traffic. We should see it finish mid this year. Every effort is being made to complete it as soon as practicable.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mr Doszpot.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, how much of the upgrade project will need to be redone to allow for the proposed light rail project; how much will it cost the Canberra community for recently completed work to be torn up and redone; and what sort of delays will occur again?
MS FITZHARRIS: The government's current decision on the light rail network is for the Civic to Gungahlin corridor. No decision has been made on any extension to that network; therefore it is a hypothetical question.
Canberra Institute of Technology—audit
MR DOSZPOT: My question is to the minister for training: we understand that ASQA—the Australian Skills Quality Authority—has undertaken an audit into CIT. When did CIT first receive a draft of the ASQA report findings?
MS FITZHARRIS: I thank Mr Doszpot for the question. It is my understanding that the CIT board has recently received the ASQA audit, and it is also my understanding that I will soon receive a briefing on that audit.
MR DOSZPOT: Minister, have you been briefed on the ASQA findings at this stage?
MS FITZHARRIS: I have received a verbal briefing, but I have not yet received a written briefing from CIT.
MADAM SPEAKER: A supplementary question, Mrs Jones.
MRS JONES: Minister, what has been CIT's response and when did that briefing you received occur?
MS FITZHARRIS: I received a verbal briefing earlier this week from the chief executive officer of CIT.
MRS JONES: Minister, what was CIT's response, and when do you plan to make public the ASQA report findings. There are two elements in the question.
MS FITZHARRIS: I do plan to make the findings of the ASQA audit public. I do not yet have a date, but I expect that will be in the next couple of weeks.
