Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 4 Hansard (3 April) . . Page.. 1503 ..

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

(1) The project is ready to tender subject to National Capital Authority works approval. The $22,000 spent to date has been expended on design and project management.

(2) The bike path currently links in to the main trunk path along Sullivans Creek to the south and runs to the Netball Courts to the north.

(3) The remaining $78,000 will be directed in to the construction of the path.

(4) To avoid abortive work the project was delayed until the Barton Highway duplication was completed. Negotiations with Yowani Golf Club and approval by the National Capital Authority have taken longer than expected.
