Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 09 Hansard (Thursday, 23 August 2018) . . Page.. 3556 ..

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MR BARR: I present to the Assembly the June quarter capital works progress report for the territory. The 2017-18 budget committed to a capital works program with just a tad over $1 billion of available funding for expenditure. The government has delivered $657 million worth of capital investment: $558 million on infrastructure development and $99 million on information communications technology and plant and equipment. This included $132 million spent on new works and $525 million spent on works in progress.

The report being tabled today outlines the significant milestones delivered during the June quarter. In relation to better roads for Gungahlin, the Horse Park Drive duplication has reached physical completion, and the Majura Parkway to Majura Road link road has reached physical completion. In relation to the nurse-led walk-in centres, overall project delivery has reached 82 per cent of completion. The Gungahlin walk-in centre commenced construction in February 2018 and reached 95 per cent completion at the end of the June quarter. Handover of the building is expected in September of 2018. Work continues to progress the Weston Creek walk-in centre. In relation to the University of Canberra public hospital car park, the project has reached physical completion.

I commend the report to the Assembly.
