The ACT Public Service Christmas Shutdown period from 24 December 2005 to 2 January 2006 (a 10 day period) prevented officers in Urban Services from responding to this development until early in January 2006. It was not clear to Urban Services staff what mechanism members of the public could use to submit comments on the proposed changes to the ARR to the NTC until 22 December 2005. However, the email sent to local stakeholders on January 2006 for allowed ample time for them to read the four documents about proposed changes to the Australian Road Rules and provide comments to the NTC by 3rd February 2006.
