Anthony Rolfe Avenue-extension (Question No 387)

Mr Cornwell asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:

In relation to Anthony Rolfe Avenue extension (bypassing Gungahlin Town Centre):

How much money has been expended on this project to date;

Why was a sign taken down in front of that road extension (adjacent to the Gungahlin Joint Emergency Services Centre) indicating that the road extension would be complete at the end of 2002;

Is this road extension behind schedule;

When will the road extension be completed?

Mr Wood: The answer to the member's questions is as follows:

$2.0 million has been expended to the end of February 2003 out of a project value of $2.5 million.

The sign advising completion at the end of 2002 was recently removed because it was no longer valid and the works are nearing completion.

The project was delayed because an old growth high value tree in the next stage of road extension necessitated a major re-design to this project so the tree could be preserved.

The road extension is programmed for completed by the end of March 2003.
