(7) The ACT is currently using speed feedback signs on Hindmarsh Drive as part of the Point to Point Camera installation. There is currently no program in place to provide speed feedback signs. However individual contractors can and have previously used these signs as part of temporary traffic management arrangements.

(8) Reports on traffic crashes are produced yearly to highlight crash types and patterns. This information is used to identify locations for treatment and also trends which are used to identify the need for encouragement and education programs. Most recently, smart forms have been produced for use by the community to report on traffic crashes. This has enabled the speedy availability of data for use as described above.

Speed data collected on roads is used to identify locations for treatments under the warrants system (to identify traffic calming projects) as well as locations for the deployment of cameras. New technologies are being used to improve the data collection of speed data.

(9) The first point to point safety cameras, located on Hindmarsh Drive, will commence operation in mid January 2012.

(10)

a) Funding is currently only available for the implementation of P2P cameras at two sites. Hindmarsh Drive is already installed.

b) The determination of P2P sites is based on a number of traffic (such as traffic volumes/ traffic speeds) and safety (traffic crashes) factors.

c) The cameras on Hindmarsh Drive will begin operation around mid January 2012.
