Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 06 Hansard (Thursday, 3 June 2021) . . Page.. 1804 ..


Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) and WorkSafe ACT have attended the development site to check compliance with the approved temporary traffic management plan. On multiple occasions, signage was not in place in accordance with the approved plan. However, temporary traffic management was compliant when subsequent site monitoring was carried out.

Parking enforcement is also occurring, and fines have been issued – including fines for parking on the verge. TCCS has agreed to corflute signage being erected to remind construction workers not to park on the verge and the developer is reminding construction workers to park legally at all-day pay parking areas.

TCCS does not have provisions to reimburse a claimant for damage incurred to a property by a tree located on private (leased) land. Costs involved in the maintenance of all trees located on leased land rests with the lessee.
