Dalrymple-Goyder streets intersection (Question No 378)
Mr Cornwell asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:
In relation to your letter of 2 December 2002 advising of a review of the performance of the new Dalrymple/Goyder Streets, Narrabundah by your department:
Has the review been completed, and what was the result;
Can a copy of the review be made available to interested parties, including myself, and if not, why not.
Mr Wood: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:
An independent road safety audit of the new arrangements at the Dalrymple/Goyder streets intersection in Narrabundah was completed on 10 December 2002 and is available for interested parties.
The Australian Federal Police have also reviewed the performance of the intersection and support the new arrangements.
The safety audit recommended improvements to assist night time visibility. The improvements included advanced warning signs, reflective pavement markers and additional lighting. All of the recommendations except the additional lighting have been implemented. The additional lighting will be installed in the near future.

Mrs Burke asked the Minister for Health, upon notice:
Have any of the funds allocated to respite care in the 2002-03 Budget for this financial year - $1 million - been expended;
If so, how much of that funding has been expended and can you provide a detailed list of where that particular funding has been spent;
Has an empirical study assessing respite care needs in the ACT, as outlined in Budget Paper 3, p144, been completed;
If so what are the results, if not, why has this study not been completed.
