Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 11 Hansard (Thursday, 22 September 2005) . . Page.. 3704 ..


Why had only 18% of the budget allocated to “Majura Parkway forward design” been expended as at the end of the March 2004-05 quarter;

What work is planned on this project in the 2005-06 financial year.

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

A preliminary evaluation report of issues relating to the planning of a future Majura parkway was delivered for the $275,000;

Yes, there was further expenditure in the final quarter covering preliminary design work and initial consultation with the Department of Defence, the National Capital Authority, the management of Canberra Airport and Environment ACT with regards to the preliminary evaluation report. $400,000 was expended on this project at the end of June 2005;

Progress was slower than originally planned due to the need to review the traffic impact of an expanded Canberra Airport employment base in the short to medium term; and

During the 2005-06 financial year, the preliminary evaluation report will be released for public comment and will be followed by either a formal Preliminary Assessment or a full environment assessment impact depending on the nature of the comments received.
