In addition to the main parkway, the project includes an off-road cycle path which runs parallel to the roadway and provides for better active travel connections between the city, Russell, Majura business park, Gungahlin and other parts of the territory. This cycle path also offers access to the various agribusinesses in the Majura valley and presents an opportunity for cycle tours of the area.

Mr Barr: I ask that all further questions be placed on the notice paper.

Supplementary answers to questions without notice

Education—ICT training

MS BURCH: I have a general response to a question about teacher librarians and support within libraries. Eighty of our schools have support in libraries through teacher librarians or school admin assistants.


MR GENTLEMAN: Earlier I took a question in regard to congestion costs in the territory, referring to the Infrastructure Australia report earlier in the year. I just want to clarify that the audit report prepared by Infrastructure Australia and launched by Minister Jamie Briggs earlier in the year found that without an additional investment the cost of road congestion in the ACT will increase from $208 million per annum in 2011 to $703 million in 2031.

Housing—cleaning contract

MS BERRY: I took a question from Ms Lawder regarding the Spotless contract. I can confirm that the scope of the contract has not changed and that Spotless are fulfilling its obligations under the contract.
