Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 9 Hansard (23 August) . . Page.. 3551 ..
MS BERRY: Good question; that is a question I have asked myself, and I do not know the answer to it. I am not aware of a time frame. But in the meantime the ACT directorate will be working on formative assessment to support teachers in their teaching and students in the classroom and to provide parents with the information they need to ensure that their children are getting the best education possible.
MR MILLIGAN: My question is to the Minister for Transport and City Services, and is in relation to roads in Gungahlin. Minister, the TCCS website states that the upgrade to the Mirrabei Drive, Gundaroo Drive and Anthony Rolfe Avenue roundabout is due to be completed in the third quarter of 2018. Minister, is this project still on track to be completed within the next five weeks to meet this time frame?
MS FITZHARRIS: I am surprised Mr Milligan needed such assistance to draft this question. Nonetheless, no, it is not, and I will ask TCCS to update that. As I indicated in a reply either last week or in a previous sitting, this project will not be delivered in this quarter, but in the following quarter. TCCS is working extremely closely with the contractor to make sure it can be delivered as soon as possible, and I will ask TCCS to update their website.
Mr Wall: You're a nasty piece of work.
MR MILLIGAN: Minister, why can the relatively straightforward addition of an extra lane not be completed now-
MADAM SPEAKER: Members!
MS FITZHARRIS: I am sorry, Madam Speaker, but Mr Wall just called me "a nasty piece of work", which ended up meaning that I did not hear Mr Milligan's supplementary question.
MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Wall, I think that is unparliamentary behaviour. Can you withdraw it, please.
Mr Wall: I withdraw.
MADAM SPEAKER: Members, there is all sorts of name-calling across the chamber. Some of it I hear; some of it I do not hear. I do not think it is appropriate for anybody. It serves no-one well to be caught in Hansard and on audio and visual behaving appallingly. Mr Milligan.
MR MILLIGAN: Thank you, Madam Speaker. Minister, why can the relatively straightforward addition of an extra lane not be completed now that the outstanding works seem to relate mostly to landscaping and tidying up?
