Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 08 Hansard (Thursday, 5 August 2021) . . Page.. 2542 ..


I am informed that the local supermarket has been working with their suppliers to try and manage their deliveries, including the timing of the deliveries to avoid peak hours. However, the frequency and type of vehicles used are somewhat dependent upon the stock requirements at the store.

TCCS officers have reviewed several ideas, including creating a one-way system to utilise one lane for deliveries and retain a trafficable lane for the community. However, the road environment particularly through the car park is too restricted to allow this to happen within current standards.

TCCS has appointed a traffic consultant to investigate the matter further, which will include the provision of a delivery layby on the side of the road and also consider the proximity of the children’s crossing in relation to the deliveries. It is expected that this work will be completed within the next three months. In the meantime, TCCS will continue to monitor the situation and continue to work with the store manager.

Municipal services—Canberra Cemeteries

Mr Steel (in reply to a question by Ms Lawder on Thursday, 24 June 2021):

In August 2020 the Cemeteries and Crematoria Authority migrated its ICT network to the wider ACT Government hosting platform. This included the transfer of the cemeteries management software and database to ACT Government servers.

The grave search function that was featured on the cemeteries externally hosted website, sourced its information from this management database. The transfer of the database to the ACT Government servers created a security protocol issue with the externally hosted website, resulting in the search functions failure.

Following work to migrate webhosting to the ACT network, a transitional website to provide access to the grave search data along with other functional information is now live and can be accessed at https://canberramemorialparks.com.au/

Members of the public can call 02 6207 0000 to get details on grave site locations.

In August 2020 the Cemeteries and Crematoria Authority migrated its ICT network to the wider ACT Government hosting platform. This included the transfer of the cemeteries management software and database to ACT Government servers.

The grave search function that was featured on the cemeteries externally hosted website, sourced its information from this management database. The transfer of the database to the ACT Government servers created a security protocol issue with the externally hosted website, resulting in the search functions failure. Several attempts to mitigate this issue were made in 2020 and again in March, April, and May of this year with no resolution.
