Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2004 Week 7 Hansard (1 July) . . Page.. 3265..

(3) Were the road mounds, which are still visible near the Mint, part of the preparation for the building of this road;

(4) Are there any plans for this road to go ahead in the future; if so, when will this project commence;

(5) If not, why not and will the A.C.T. Government give consideration to building this road in the future to, among other things, alleviate the problem of drivers taking short-cuts via Theodore Street in Curtin to access the Cotter Road.

Mr Quinlan

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

(1) The Government is unaware of any plans for a bypass road along the lines described in the Member's question.

(2) See answer to (1)

(3) See the answer to (1). The mounding in the median near the Royal Australian Mint forms part of the landscaping associated with Yarra Glen. It is not part of any scheme for future road connections between Adelaide Avenue/Yarra Glen and the Cotter Road.

(4) Planning for the future Molonglo District outlined in the Canberra Spatial Plan will require a careful analysis of future road connections between the new district and the rest of Canberra. Concepts such as those to which the Member's question refers will be examined as part of the planning for the new district.

(5) See answer to (4). In the absence of any connection which might be required for the new Molonglo District's development, the Government does not consider that such connections would be justified.

Theodore Street in Curtin attracts a proportion of "through" traffic accessing Cotter Road and Lady Denman Drive. Local area traffic management measures have been implemented by the Department of Urban Services on Theodore Street and McCulloch Street to discourage heavy vehicle traffic and other through traffic with a view to improving road safety and residential amenity in Curtin.
