Roads—Harrison—petition 40-22

By Mr Pettersson, from 370 residents:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

The following residents of the ACT draw to the attention of the Assembly the alarming number of traffic safety issues around the Harrison Education Precinct, bordered by Mapleton Ave, Katoomba St, Nullarbor Ave and Flemington Rd. The roads, carparks and footpaths in the area have experienced a significant increase in traffic due to the increased population of both the education precinct and residential apartment blocks.
