Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 07 Hansard (Tuesday, 22 June 2021) . . Page.. 1807 ..

Tuesday, 22 June 2021

MADAM SPEAKER (Ms Burch) (10.00): Members:

Dhawura nguna, dhawura Ngunnawal.

Yanggu ngalawiri, dhunimanyin Ngunnawalwari dhawurawari.

Nginggada Dindi dhawura Ngunnaawalbun yindjumaralidjinyin.

The words I have just spoken are in the language of the traditional custodians and translate to:

This is Ngunnawal country.

Today we are gathering on Ngunnawal country.

We always pay respect to Elders, female and male, and Ngunnawal country.

Members, I ask you to stand in silence and pray or reflect on our responsibilities to the people of the Australian Capital Territory.


The following petitions were lodged for presentation:

Roads—safety—petition 17-21

By Mr Parton, from 278 residents:

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:

Lawrence Wackett Crescent is the only road in and out of Theodore.

The uncontrolled western intersection of Lawrence Wackett Crescent and Tharwa Drive is extremely dangerous and the site of many and ongoing vehicle accidents.

The 4000 residents of Theodore should be able to safely enter and exit their own suburb without the ongoing high-risk threat of collision when entering 80km/h Tharwa Drive.

The safety risks to residents and visitors to Theodore have been ignored for many years.

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

Implement improvements to significantly increase safety at the western intersection of Lawrence Wackett Crescent and Tharwa Drive.
