Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2005 Week 12 Hansard (Thursday, 20 October 2005) . . Page.. 4017 ..


Was there any further expenditure on these projects in the final quarter of 2004-05; if so, what was delivered for that expenditure and what was the total amount of expenditure as at the end of 2004-05; if not, why not;

Has there been any expenditure on these projects in the 2005-06 financial year; if so, how much and what was delivered for that expenditure; if not, why not;

Were these programs classified as important transport programs by the Stanhope Government; if so, why did the Government fail to spend the capital funding allocated to them in the 2004-05 financial year.

Mr Corbell: The Minister for Urban Services has redirected this question to me as the Minister responsible for sustainable transport. The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

a) Work on a feasibility study for the Real Time Information System was incomplete at the end of the 2004-05 March quarter and so no payments had been made to the contractor undertaking this work at that time.

b) Contract for the bicycle racks on ACTION buses was still under negotiation at the time of the 2004-05 March quarterly report.

Yes. $40,000 was spent on receipt of the feasibility study for the Real Time Information System in the June quarter of 2004-05, while no expenditure was incurred in 2004-05 for the bicycle racks on ACTION buses initiative.

No expenditure has been recorded against the Real Time Information project, however it has now been completed and payment is being finalised. $69,000 has been expended on the bicycle racks for ACTION buses in the 2005-06 financial year and will be reported by the ACTION Authority.

The 2004-05 capital expenditure for these projects will be spent in accordance with the contractual arrangements.
