Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 06 Hansard (Wednesday, 2 June 2021) . . Page.. 1562 ..


To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

The following residents of the ACT draw to the attention of the ACT Assembly:

Dangerous and anti-social driving has been an ongoing safety concern for the residents of Gordon, in particular the residents of Harry Hopman Circuit, Schofield Place, Leahy Place, Hindle Place, Pails Place, McVilly Close, Thurgood Court, Shean Place, Robert Lewis Court, Violet Grover Place, McGrowdie Place, Chipperfield Circuit and Knoke Avenue.

Residents have made representations to Access Canberra & ACT Policing on a number of occasions.

Burnouts, speeding and anti-social behaviour are commonplace and noted by a substantial number of burnout marks on the above-mentioned streets.

The health and safety of residents and visitors, in particular children, remains an ongoing concern.

In addition, the establishment of a new childcare centre in the area will increase traffic on the above-mentioned streets and adjoining areas.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to call on the ACT Government to:

Develop a traffic management plan for the southern streets of Gordon, the above-mentioned streets in particular in consultation with residents.

Consult with ACT Policing to identify and manage dangerous and anti-social driving in the southern streets of Gordon, the above-mentioned streets in particular.

Consult with the proprietor of the new childcare centre to gauge and account for future traffic demands.

Report back to residents in the southern streets of Gordon, the above-mentioned streets in particular upon the completion of a traffic management plan.

Implement the findings of a traffic management plan as soon as possible.

Fisher—footpaths—petition 18-21

By Dr Paterson, from 155 residents:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that:

Ballarat Street in Fisher does not have adequate footpaths given the amount of vehicle traffic and the frequent areas of poor visibility for drivers.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to:

Direct the relevant ACT Government Directorate to construct a footpath along the length of Ballarat St, so that residents of Fisher can safely walk the length of the street without walking on the road.
