Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 05 Hansard (Thursday, 7 April 2005 2005) . . Page.. 1603 ..


How many cars in your department with ACT Government numberplates are home-garaged every day;

How many are garaged by officers on call;

Of those which are not garaged by officers on call, (a) how many cars are there, (b) in which suburbs are they garaged and (c) in the week commencing 7 March 2005, for each car how many kilometres were driven (i) to and from work and (ii) for work purposes.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

Parks and Conservation Vehicles

(1)

40 vehicles are home garaged irregularly throughout the year, depending on the duties of staff and roster arrangements.

(2)

16

(3) a

24. Most of these vehicles are home garaged for security purposes. There are no secure storage facilities in remote locations such as Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, Namadgi National Park, Cotter Reserve and Googong Foreshores.

3) b

Depending on which officer home garages, the vehicles could be home garaged in the following suburbs: Kaleen, Aranda, Queanbeyan, Theodore, Banks, Gordon, Cook, Tharwa, Weston, McKellar, MacGregor, Cotter, Chisholm, Gungahlin, Giralang, Greenway, Hall, Higgins, Jerrabomberra, Kambah, Macarthur, Mawson, Pialligo, Rivett, Ainslie, Page, Weston, Gilmore, Deakin, Gowrie and Garran.

(3) c (i)

Due to the remoteness of Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, Googong Foreshores, Riverview and Glendale Depots (located at Namadgi National Park), the majority of the Parks and Conservation vehicles have to travel long distances to and from work.

In the cases of Tidbinbilla and Googong Foreshores, the reserve areas are quite small which reduces the number of kilometres driven for work purposes. However, this does not reduce the need for vehicles. Furthermore, in some cases car-pooling occurs on a regular basis.
