(1) A date has not yet been confirmed. Transport Canberra and City Services has assessed the path network in the area and identified an alignment for the future path network that would connect Lawson to the University of Canberra and the Belconnen Town Centre.

(2) The alternative route that could be used is the path around the ‘Reservoir Hill’ that connects with the shared path on Wanderlight Avenue that leads to the intersection with Ginninderra Drive. From this intersection, pedestrians and cyclists can use either the path along Allawoona Street to access the University of Canberra or use the path network along Aikman Drive to access the Belconnen Town Centre.

Given that the Minister’s response to question on notice No 3184 (Ninth Assembly) indicated that the 2015 Kippax Flood Study Report was being revised and would be finalised in 2020, can the Minister now provide a copy of the revised flood study.

Health—disability strategy(Question No 125)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 12 February 2021:

What are the anticipated completion and implementation dates for the ACT Disability Health Strategy that will be commencing development this year.

Ms Stephen-Smith: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

Initial scoping work on the ACT Disability Health Strategy will be undertaken in 2021. Scoping work will include: a gap analysis, literature review, desktop review comparison with other Australian jurisdictions and consultation. Consultation will include people with lived experience of disability, relevant non-government disability sector organisations and other key stakeholders in the health sector.

It is anticipated that the ACT Disability Health Strategy will be drafted in 2022 and implementation will commence in 2023. Similarly to the development of other strategies, it is expected that this work will identify early opportunities for service options that will be implemented prior to finalisation of the strategy.
