LAKE ROAD BRIDGE
1076. Hon PETER COLLIER to the minister representing the
Minister for Transport:
I refer to the Armadale Road–North
Lake Road Bridge project.
(1) Has any land
been acquired for this project?
(2) If yes to
(1), will the minister identify the land has been acquired to date, and
identify the cost of each parcel of land acquired?
(3) Is there
further land that needs to be acquired to allow this project to be completed?
(4) If yes to
(3), will the minister list each site that has been identified that may need to
be acquired; and, if not, why not?
STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the Leader of the
Opposition for some notice of the question. The following answer has been
provided to me by the Minister for Transport.
(2) Main Roads is
currently negotiating with affected landowners. To date, 24 properties have
been acquired and nine remain under negotiation.
land required for the project has been identified and has either been taken or
is in the process of being acquired.
