The response read as follows:
Dear Mr Duncan
Thank you for your letter of 22 March 2022 regarding petition 39-21, lodged by Mr Shane Rattenbury MLA. The petition seeks the ACT Government to extend the current Reid Oval steel tube and chain link fence along the entire length of Limestone Avenue, and repair broken segments to reduce the risk of sporting equipment, children and animals inadvertently crossing into the path of motorists.
Sports and Recreation Facilities is responsible for the ongoing management and maintenance of the Territory’s community sportsgrounds and associated facilities and the planning and delivery of new sporting infrastructure. The team manage outdoor sports and recreation sites covering 444 hectares of public land.
I acknowledge the petitioners request to extend the chain link component of the Reid Oval fencing, and Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) will extend the mesh on the current fence to the length of Limestone Avenue. TCCS officers will also assess the current fence for damage and make repairs as necessary to ensure the fence is safe.
I trust this information is of assistance.
