Canberra Hospital-Emergency Department

(Question No 1210)

Mr Smyth asked the Minister for Health, upon notice:

In relation to the Canberra Hospital Emergency Department refurbishment:

(1) As at the end of the September 2003-04 quarter $346 000 was expended on this project (excluding prior years spending). What was delivered for this expenditure;

(2) This project has a completion date of May 2004, is the project running to schedule to be completed by that deadline;

(3) If no to (2) what is the delay in completing the project according to schedule.

Mr Corbell

: The answer to the member's question is:

(1) The expenditure included:

Design work.

Completion of payments for the administration area (stage 1)

Temporary works within the Emergency Department and the Intensive Care Unit to allow the extension works to commence; and

Partial funding of the foundations and structure for the extension.

(2) The projected completion date for this project is now June 2004.

(3) The prolongation of this project by one month is largely due to initial start delays caused by difficulties in site excavation due to the location of major site services and design delays due to the need to resolve "Moral Rights "issues raised by the original design architect and team.
