(5) Are there any losers in changing the details of this project, if so, who.

Mr Wood

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

(1) The Department of Urban Services, Capital Works Program, December Quarterly Report had inadvertently named the Libraries Improvement Program as the Civic Library Strategy. This was rectified in the March Quarterly Report.

(2) By the end of the March Quarter we were significantly advanced in delivering the Libraries Improvement Program with works in progress in the following locations:


- Cooling tower controls system and support

- Internal lighting

- Fire and lift services


- Air conditioning

- Mechanical, fire and lift services


- Replacement front door operator mechanism


- Air conditioning management system and control work

- Fire services


- Heating, mechanical and fire systems work

- Roofing and guttering

(3) The main aim of the program is to provide funding to address items identified in Condition Audits and include OH&S, fire, air conditioning and disabled access in various libraries.

(4) The aim of the program has not changed from that originally stated in the Budget Papers - refer page 190 of revised BP4, 2002-03 - which clearly states the $500,000 approved funding is for the Libraries Improvement Program.

(5) There has been no change to the details of the original program.
