Roads—Malcolm Fraser Bridge (Question No 751)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Transport and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 5 May 2016:

(1) Who approved the road closures and traffic diversions put in place on the Majura Parkway on 21 and 22 April 2016 for the naming of the Malcolm Fraser Bridge on 22 April 2016.

(2) When was the decision taken to close the roads.

(3) Was any consideration to holding the naming event in another nearby location to limit disruption to road users.

(4) Was any consideration given to the impact that the road closures would have on traffic flow in this area.

(5) What steps were taken to ensure that motorists were forewarned of the road closures so that they could consider alternative routes.

(6) Was any assessment undertaken after the event to determine the level of disruption to traffic and the impact on local motorists, including productivity losses, to inform the consideration of any future road closures.

(7) What was the total cost of the naming event.

Ms Fitzharris: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Roads ACT.

(2) The decision to close the southbound carriageway of the Majura Parkway was taken in March 2016 to ensure the event was conducted safely once the scale of the opening event was understood.

(3) Yes, however as the event also included the formal naming of the Malcolm Fraser Bridge, a decision was made to hold the event on the southbound bridge outside the morning peak traffic period to minimise the impact.
