KENWICK LINK, DUAL CARRIAGEWAY

2925. Ms MacTIERNAN to the Minister representing the Minister for Transport:

(1) Why was the initial section of the Kenwick-Link at the William Street end not made a dual carriageway when the original plans and road reserve allowed for it?

(2) What traffic monitoring, if any, has been put in place to measure the traffic flow at this narrowed section of the Kenwick-Link?

(3) If any, what are the results?

Mr OMODEI replied:

The Hon Minister for Transport has provided the following response:

(1) During the public consultation phase of the project, a decision was made not to construct the full dual carriageway and to keep as much traffic as possible on Albany Highway. It was determined that the four lane dual carriageway would only be constructed when traffic warranted it. This commitment was given to the proprietors of businesses on Albany Highway.
