Questions without notice taken on notice

Roads—crash database

Mr Rattenbury (in reply to a question and supplementary questions by Mr Coe and Mr Smyth on Thursday, 14 February 2013):

I refer to questions taken on notice during question time on 14 February 2013 regarding the Roads ACT crash database and crashes at fixed speed camera locations.

I also refer to my response to question on notice 54 regarding the same matter.

The response to your questions are outlined below:

Mr Coe: What is the nature of the problems with the database?

Due to a combination of human and system errors, some incorrect data was provided by the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate (TAMS) in QON 2220 during the last Assembly. This data has been corrected in the response to QON 54.

The crash information provided in QON 2220 for four of the questions reflected data for travel in both directions where the request was for one direction only.

Prior to 2011, crash data was entered and analysed by ACT Roads and Maintenance System (ACTRAMS) database. In June 2011, this database was decommissioned and all historic information was transferred to the TAMS Integrated Asset Management System (IAMS) database. Crash data from June 2011 onwards has been entered into the IAMS database.

Due to technical differences between the two systems (for example different boundaries for mid-blocks and intersections and newer spatial mapping technology in IAMS) the transfer of historical data from ACTRAMS to IAMS resulted in errors in the locations of some crashes.

As a result of the errors identified in QON 2220, TAMS undertook an internal audit of the crash reporting system and reviewed its processes to address these concerns.
