Petitions

The following petitions were lodged for presentation.

Hardwick Crescent, Holt

by Mr Stefaniak, from 57 residents:

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

The petition of certain Residents of the AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY draws to the attention of the ASSEMBLY that there is an URGENT NEED to EVALUATE TRAFFIC MOVEMENTS that pass shops at No,116 Hardwick Crescent Holt including Car Parks opposite. This has become EXTREMELY DANGEROUS over recent times, with a number of SERIOUS ACCIDENTS caused by SPEEDING MOTORISTS and other traffic violations in this Area.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to call on the MINISTER FOR URBAN SERVICES to instruct the DEPARTMENT to undertake a full TRAFFIC evaluation of this Area by their Traffic Engineers to solve the current DANGEROUS situation. This should be undertaken as a MATTER OF PRIORITY involving Local Residents and Merchants of this Area, to obtain a positive outcome, benefiting all concerned.

Hughes shopping centre

by Mr Cornwell, from 602 residents:

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

The petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that the lighting of the PUBLIC CAR PARKING AREAS at the Hughes Shopping Centre needs URGENT evaluation for an upgrade.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to call on the Minister for URBAN SERVICES to include in the Department of Urban Services works program for the next BUDGET 2004-2005, the upgrade of LIGHTING OF THE PUBLIC CAR PARKING AREAS at the HUGHES SHOPPING CENTRE to assist NIGHT SHOPPERS and other USERS of that AREA, in particular for SAFETY and SECURITY REASONS
