We are very proud, as a government, to be delivering a new Belconnen police station to serve the people of the district of Belconnen. It is a new state-of-the-art facility that will meet ACT Policing’s needs in terms of housing its police services in the Belconnen district for many decades into the future. It replaces a rundown and dilapidated facility which was well past its use-by date.

Whilst there has been much sentiment expressed about the history of the old Belconnen police station, the fact is it needed to be replaced. It has been this Labor government that has made the investment needed to deliver a new, contemporary, state-of-the-art and sustainable police building to meet the needs of the people of Belconnen for well into the future.

MRS DUNNE: Supplementary question, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Yes, Mrs Dunne.

MRS DUNNE: Minister, does the brochure state that the project is 18 months behind schedule, and, if not, why not?

MR CORBELL: I have already answered that question, Mr Speaker.

MRS DUNNE: Supplementary question, Mr Speaker.

MR SPEAKER: Yes, Mrs Dunne.

MRS DUNNE: Minister, for the information of the Assembly, can you enumerate any of the projects you have brought in on time or on budget?

MR CORBELL: I have done so, Mr Speaker, on repeated occasions in response to previous questions from those opposite.


MR SPEAKER: Ms Bresnan, before I come to you, members I would just make note of the fact that we are joined in the public gallery today by guests from the University of the Third Age. I once again welcome you to the Assembly and hope that you enjoy your visit.

Questions without notice

ACTION bus services—routes

MS BRESNAN: My question is to the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services and concerns ACTION bus routes and timetabling. Minister, what are you doing to address the constant overcrowding problems on peak hour ACTION routes, meaning people are left waiting? For example, will you purchase and use more articulated buses on these routes?
