Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 10 Hansard (Wednesday, 6 October 2021) . . Page.. 2736 ..


MADAM SPEAKER (10.13): Members, without entering into debate, I will say that I am happy to raise this in the admin and procedures committee, but I would also comment that it came to my personal email address. To provide assurance, and for the processes within my office, sending it to the Speaker’s address would provide a double assurance that more eyes than mine see it before or within the appropriate 90-minute period.

Petitions

The following petitions were lodged for presentation:

By Ms Lee, from 186 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:

a) The increased number of commuters parking all-day in the narrow residential streets in Campbell is creating dangerous hazards to traffic and pedestrians (including young pedestrians in three school zones) as most of these residential streets are too narrow for two-way traffic to traverse past parked vehicles;

b) The volume of commuter traffic using minor collector roads and access streets in Campbell is increasing to an unsustainable level; and

c) That past attempts to fix these problems on a street-by-street basis has simply moved the problems from one street to another.

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

Conduct a whole of suburb review of the parking and traffic problems in Campbell with a view to implementing a parking and traffic management plan for the whole suburb.
