Petitions

The following petitions were lodged for presentation.

Charnwood-road traffic

by Mr Stefaniak, from 138 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 a need to urgently evaluate traffic movements that pass through the intersection at Lhotsky Street and Charnwood Place (near the service station) at the entrance of the Charnwood shopping centre Belconnen. This has become a major problem over a period of time, stopping the free flow of traffic through this busy intersection.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to call on the Minister for Urban Services and the department to undertake a traffic assessment of this intersection, by traffic engineers, to control traffic movements either by, the installation of a traffic roundabout or other traffic engineering means, with the view to solve this problem. This should be immediately undertaken involving residents, businesses and merchants of this area, to have a successful resolution of this traffic problem at the entrance of the Charnwood shopping centre.

Hawker shopping centre

by Mr Stefaniak, from 279 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 Hawker shopping centre needs an urgent upgrade.

Your petitioners therefore request that the Assembly include the forthcoming budget funds to urgently upgrade the overhead night lighting arrangement at the public car parking areas at the Hawker shopping centre to assist night shoppers and other users of that area, in particular for safety reasons.
