(Question No 1101)
Mr Stefaniak: asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:
In relation to footpaths in Belconnen suburbs. Please list on a suburb-by-suburb basis how much was spent in relation to footpath repair and improvements in each suburb in Belconnen for the financial year ending 30 June 2003.
Mr Wood: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
Roads ACT has advised that $1,998,651 was expended on the maintenance of the ACT's community paths for 2002/03. This included $1,625,708 for planned maintenance and $372,943 for routine maintenance.
Roads ACT do not record expenditure on a suburb by suburb basis for footpath maintenance activities. Expenditure is recorded by project for planned maintenance and task type for routine maintenance. A project can include various suburbs within the ACT and the work is carried out under a lump sum contract. A price break down is not provided for each section of footpath repaired under the contract. In the case of routine maintenance the expenditure may be for temporary asphalt repairs to footpaths carried out during a month.
Hence, under the current system of recording it is difficult, time consuming and costly to back track and estimate costs to a particular section of footpath within a particular suburb for the purpose of providing a specific answer to this question.
