Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice, on 4 May 2005:

What is the current width of each of the traffic lanes travelling in both directions along the entire length Northbourne Avenue;

Are these lanes now wide enough, since the introduction of on-road cycle lanes, to accommodate all emergency services vehicles, including fire tankers, that need to travel along this major road; if not, why not;

What is the width of ACT fire brigade tankers;

Are there any other main roads in the ACT that, since the installation of on-road cycle lanes, have had their widths reduced to the extent that they are narrower than emergency services vehicles; if so, which roads and what is the lane width of those roads.

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

The kerb side traffic lanes are 3.2 metres wide. The centre lanes and median lanes are 3.0 metres wide;
