Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 1 Hansard (20 February) . . Page.. 390..


Mr Wood: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:

No reduction has been made to this project with $11 million authorisation available as advised in the budget papers.

The intention is to duplicate Athllon Drive from Drakeford Drive to Isabella Drive subject to sufficient funds being available.

The $8.2 million represents the cost of the construction contract from Drakeford Drive to Reed Street but excludes the cost of the design, the supervision, the bridge works and the roundabout. When due allowance is made for these costs, $1.0 million is available to complete the duplication of the road to Isabella Drive.

An amount of $676,492 has been spent on this project at the end of January 2003.

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

ACTTAB has advised that, subject to no increase or decrease in staff numbers over the next 18 months to 2 years, during which time the new head office will be constructed, all of ACTTAB's 35 permanent head office staff will be relocated to Gungahlin.
