Land—Dickson purchase

Mr Barr (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Coe on Wednesday, 11 April 2018):

1. I have been advised that the current lease expires on 18 June 2018. I have been further advised that EPSDD has contacted the existing tenants to discuss transition arrangements.

Hospitals—waiting times

Ms Fitzharris (in reply to a supplementary question by Mrs Dunne on Tuesday, 8 May 2018):

This figure is not available as not all patients waiting for an initial appointment with a specialist are subsequently added to the ACT public elective surgery waiting list.

As at 30 April 2018 there were 1,085 patients aged less than 18 years who were waiting 365 days or more for an initial appointment to see a specialist. Of the 1,085 patients, 28 per cent of these were not ACT residents.

Emergency services—communications

Mr Gentleman (in reply to a supplementary question by Ms Le Couteur on Wednesday, 9 May 2018):

The ACT Emergency Services Agency (ESA) maintains a number of public information strategies to keep our community informed. These include, but are not limited to, Memorandums of Understanding with media outlets (television and radio) for transmission of public information, posts to social media outlets including Twitter and Facebook, and publication of messages on websites. The ESA also maintains an Emergency Alert capability which can be used to broadcast warning messages directly to mobile telephones and land lines in any area of the ACT.

Roads—Ashley Drive

Ms Fitzharris (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Parton on Wednesday, 9 May 2018):

Transport Canberra and City Services deliver on average over 100 capital works projects annually, with the vast majority of these delivered well inside their completion dates. As with all large portfolios of work, there will always be projects that due to unplanned or unexpected delays fall behind their programmed completion dates. The most notable projects currently behind their original completion dates include the Weston Creek Dog Park, which was delayed during the early planning and site identification process. These works are partially complete with new fencing and landscaping due to be finalise din mid-2018.
