Municipal services—path upgrades (Question No 1501)

Ms Le Couteur asked the Minister for Transport and City Services, upon notice, on 8 June 2018 (redirected to the Acting Minister for Transport and City Services):

(1) Has the ACT Government received requests for widening and other upgrades to the shared path on the eastern side of Lake Tuggeranong, parallel to Mortimer Lewis Drive, Greenway, in the last five years; if so, has any action been taken to address these requests.

(2) Is widening (or other upgrades) of this path included in the ACT Government's list of potential future path network upgrades; if so, how does this project rank on the list.

(3) Are any upgrades or other improvements to paths in this area scheduled as a result of the land release currently underway on the eastern side of Lake Tuggeranong.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) TCCS has received one request in the last five years for the upgrade of the cycle path adjacent to Lake Tuggeranong. This request was assessed based on the existing path width (which on average is between 2.5 to three metres wide) and current usage. This path width was considered suitable for the usage at the time.
