(2) How much did these signs cost.

(3) What quality management control and governance processes applied and were they followed to design, build and install these signs that encouraged people to stop and cross double white lines; if so; how they are being improved, if not; can the Minister explain the lack of governance.

(4) What standards for road signs apply and did these signs meet them.

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

(1) The temporary signs installed to alert motorist to possible vehicles emerging from the grass verge were authorised for use by Road ACT. The signs where removed after consultation with residents and other stakeholders regarding a permanent solution to the concerns about the use of the verge for parking by users accessing the walking tracks on Mount Taylor.

(2) The two signs cost $1723.00 including the cost of installation. The signs when removed were taken to stores and will be reused.

(3) The signs were designed and installed to the required Australian Standards, and authorised for installation by the Road Manager (or their Delegate) prior to installation. This is standard governance practice for this function.

(4) All road signs need to comply with the rules set out in the Australian Standards AS1742. The temporary signs complied with the standards.

(2) Can the Minister provide a copy of the risk assessment undertaken for the intersection of Sternberg and Comrie.

(3) Was the original proposal to install traffic lights at the intersection of Sternberg and Ashley and on what basis did it change from traffic lights to a roundabout.

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

(1) A copy of the risk assessment is provided at Attachment A.
