Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 07 Hansard (Tuesday, 22 June 2021) . . Page.. 1808 ..


Roads—safety—petition 20-21

By Mr Parton, from 31 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:

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.

Sport—Bonner oval—petition 7-21

By Ms Orr, from 153 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 Assembly:

The Gungahlin Community is the fastest growing community in the ACT;

The demand for cricket, both junior and adult, has also been growing rapidly;

Bonner Oval is increasingly used by the multicultural community in Bonner for social cricket competitions;

The not-for-profit community club Indian Australian Multicultural Sports Association holds many annual events;·

These include initiatives to involve women and girls more in cricket and sport in general; and

The Bonner Oval has public toilets, tables and chairs and some other amenities, however it lacks a water bubbler for people playing sport.

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

Fund a water bubbler at the Bonner Oval as part of the August 2021 budget; and Prioritise other amenities at Bonner Oval where possible.
