Gungahlin Drive extension

MR COE (Ginninderra) (12.01): I move:

That this Assembly:

(1) notes:

(a) that the ACT Government first committed to building the Gungahlin Drive Extension (GDE) at a cost of $53 million in 2001;

(b) that the total cost of the project is now estimated to be in excess of $200 million;

(c) that the GDE was initially intended to be completed by 2004;

(d) that the current estimated timeframe for delivery is June 2012;

(e) the litany of problems associated with the delivery of the GDE project, including the collapse of the Barton Highway bridge; and

(f) that the residents of Belconnen and Gungahlin have been severely inconvenienced by the ongoing construction of the GDE; and

(2) calls on the Government to:

(a) outline when each section of the GDE will be duplicated and open to the public;

(b) publish the total cost of the project since 2001;

(c) publish the additional cost of the project of building a single lane road, then duplicating it as opposed to building a two lane road in one construction project; and

(d) report back to the Assembly on the above by 30 June 2011.
