Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2017 Week 12 Hansard (Tuesday, 24 October 2017) . . Page.. 4233 ..

women who have, for another reason, been inpatients at Canberra Hospital. We of course have the birthing centre and the more traditional birthing method at Canberra Hospital as well as those birthing facilities at Calvary hospital.

The staff there will do everything that they can in order to manage this. Something that Canberra Hospital and I know Calvary hospital do every day is look at the status of the patients and the beds within each of the hospitals and understand how best to provide the highest quality service particularly to those women who are birthing. I will take the specifics of specific clinical contingencies on notice.

Municipal services—fix my street

MS ORR: My question is to the Minister for Regulatory Services. Can the minister update the Assembly on the newly relaunched fix my street website?

MR RAMSAY: Minister Fitzharris and I were very pleased to launch the newest version of the fix my street website earlier this morning. The website has been significantly redesigned and now provides even more information.

This new system is designed to make it even easier and quicker for Canberrans to interact with government. It continues to use your smartphone’s location so it can quickly and accurately find where you are when you are reporting an issue. That makes it simple and easy to report things like broken street lights or a car that might be parked illegally. This will save people time, as they do not have to wait on the phone to report minor issues.

Since fix my street began in 2010, Access Canberra has expanded it to now cover 30 different categories that people can report. Canberrans visiting the site will now start off by letting us know which suburb the matter is located in. New dashboards and interactive maps will provide the user with an increased level of information on what the government is already doing in their suburb.

We have been out and we have tested the new system with some of our most frequent users of fix my street, as well as a number of members of the public who have visited the Woden Service Centre recently, to ensure that we shaped it to best meet the needs of the community.

But there is more to come. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the website and add in new functionality. So the page has a link where people can provide feedback on the site and let us know what additional details, links or functions they would like to see. I encourage all Canberrans to jump online to have a look at what the new site can do and to let the government know what else they might like to see in the future.

MS ORR: Minister, how will the new map function in fix my street help constituents have access to a greater level of information about what the government is working on in their streets and suburbs?
