Statement by chair

MS ORR (Yerrabi) (11.38): Pursuant to standing order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Environment and Transport and City Services relating to petition 18-17. The petition was received by the Assembly on 28 November 2017 and referred to the committee under standing order 99A.

As signatories to petition 18-17, 620 residents of the ACT requested the Assembly to improve the safety and amenity of the infrastructure surrounding the Mount Taylor car park on Sulwood Drive in Kambah for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

The committee notes that, in her response to the petition, the Minister for Transport and City Services said:

... Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) Directorate's forward planning has identified and co-ordinated a cross-directorate initiative for a number of improvements to the parking and access provisions servicing Mount Taylor and these will be considered.

The committee also notes that funding was allocated in the most recent budget towards improvements in infrastructure at the site.

In light of the minister's commitments and the budget allocation, the committee will not be inquiring further into the matters raised in petition 18-17.

Statement by chair

MS ORR (Yerrabi) (11.39): Pursuant to standing order 246A, I wish to make a statement on behalf of the Standing Committee on Environment and Transport and City Services relating to petition 26-17. The petition was received by the Assembly on 28 November 2017 and referred to the committee under standing order 99A.

As signatories to petition 26-17, 562 residents of the ACT requested the Assembly to call on the government to re-route buses from the cafe area of Anketell Street to an alternative route of Reed Street, Cowlishaw Street and Pitman Street.

The committee notes that, in her response to the petition, the Minister for Transport Canberra and City Services said:

... Transport Canberra does not support the proposal of immediate and permanent rerouting of buses away from Anketell Street ... Transport Canberra and City Services officials will continue to work closely with the Tuggeranong community to discuss longer term options for improved public transport provision within the Town Centre ...

The committee also notes the opportunity for Tuggeranong residents and business owners to present their suggestions directly to Transport Canberra during the current consultation on the new bus network.
