(Question No 544)
Mr Seselja asked the Minister for Planning, upon notice, on 25 August 2005:
(1) Are there two forward design projects titled ‘Hoskins Street Wells Station Drive to Flemington Road’ and ‘Wells Station Drive Hoskins Street to Flemington Road’ in the 2004-05 capital works program; if so, what are the details around these two projects;
(2) What is the feasibility study for these two projects designed to report to Government;
(3) Will these projects involve a road being constructed from the Wells Station Drive/Hoskins Street intersection directly across to meet with Flemington Road; if so, where is it proposed that such an access road would meet with Flemington Road.
Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
a) Hoskins Street from Wells Station Drive to Flemington Road
The proposed road extension has two 3.5 metre wide lanes with on-road cycle lanes and parallel parking bays on both sides of the road. It is a major collector road through the suburb of Franklin and will provide access to Mitchell and the Gungahlin Town Centre.
b) Wells Station Drive from Hoskins Street to Flemington Road
Wells Station Drive is a proposed arterial road linking Gungahlin Drive and Horse Park Drive. The road forms the boundary of three suburbs, Franklin, Harrison and Kenny. Part of the road has been previously constructed to link Gungahlin Drive to Hoskins Street in Mitchell industrial area. This project comprises the section of Wells Station Drive from Hoskins Street to link to the next major arterial road, Flemington Road.
