in relation to complaints about dangerous foothpaths around the Gungahlin Marketplace, particularly in front of the TAB on Gozzard Street.

(2) Can the Minister provide advice on waiting times for Fix My Street requests such as those listed in part (1).

(3) Can the Minister explain why Access Canberra has not responded to these requests.

(4) When will Access Canberra fix the dangerous footpaths to ensure no more incidents occur.

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

(1) Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) has acted on the requests lodged on the above-noted dates in relation to Gozzard Street.

(a) 9 December 2019 - An inspection occurred and no defects were identified.

(b) 28 February 2020 – Following an inspection of the area repairs were completed on 8 July 2020.

(c) 6 August 2020 – Following an inspection repairs were completed on 14 April 2021.

(d) TCCS were unable to identify any data in our system which is associated with the request made on 4 September 2020.

Unfortunately, these defects can continue to occur due to misuse such as motor vehicles parking on pavers.

(2) TCCS prioritises and inspects paths within 10 business days of receiving a request. Once the path has been assessed it is entered into Roads ACT’s asset management database system for repair and/or replacement.

Any issue confirmed as posing an immediate safety risk to the public is made safe within three to 10 business day after the initial inspection depending on priority. Other works are packaged into larger contracts by locality for efficiencies. These are prioritised and repaired within 12 to 18 months after the initial inspection.

(4) See (1).
