Answered on

THORNLIE–COCKBURN LINK — BENEFIT–COST RATIO

1165. Hon PETER COLLIER to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:

This question is from 9 November. I refer to the Thornlie–Cockburn Link project definition plan and the benefit–cost ratio in the plan.

(1) What was the capital cost that was used to derive the BCR of 1.2?

(2) What was the depreciation charge for each of the first five years of operation that was used to derive the BCR of 1.2?

(3) What was the forecast revenue for each of the first five years that was used to derive the BCR of 1.2?

(4) What was the forecast recurrent expenditure for each of the first five years that was used to derive a BCR of 1.2?

(5) What was the forecast annual operating subsidy for each of the first five years that was used to derive a BCR of 1.2?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the Leader of the Opposition for the question. This answer was current as at 7 November.

(1)–(5) This project is currently at a critical stage in that it is going through an open market procurement process. A summary PDP has been released and consideration can be given to providing further information when this process is complete.
