(8) Can the Minister, for the entire shared path network, provide a list detailing (a) the directorate’s priority list of scheduled upgrades, including repairs, replacement of sections, repaving, drainage upgrades etc, in priority order and (b) the missing links that have been identified across the network, and the priority order for addressing these.

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

(1) Transport Canberra City Services (TCCS) currently inspects paths under two categories: defects and condition. Both programs include principal cycle routes. This program is ongoing and has a planned and a reactive component. The planned component is for 32 higher-risk suburbs and follows a four-year rotating inspection program based on priority. The reactive program encompasses the whole of the ACT and responds to defects reported by the community through Fix My Street and other sources. Where a reported defect is assessed as suitable for repair then these repairs are programmed in packages dependent on the length, location, material and contract.

Sections of principal cycle routes within the 32 higher-risk suburbs are inspected for defects on a five-year priority basis. Outside of these 32 suburbs, principal cycle routes are inspected by TCCS officers when defects are reported by the community, through Fix My Street or other sources.

For each of the 10 principal cycle routes, the most recent planned inspection was undertaken on a suburb-by-suburb basis:
