Mr Morris asked the Minister for Transport, upon notice:

(1)   What is the name of each completed project funded under the urban local roads category of the Roads Grants Act 1974.

(2)   What is the estimated total cost of each of the projects.

(3)   What projects are currently being funded under this category.

(4)   What is the estimated date of completion of each of these projects.


Mr Nixon -The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   and (2) Details of the location and estimated cost of completed projects are not available. The Roads Grants Act does not require a State to provide a completion report for each project which has been approved as being eligible for assistance from Commonwealth grants. The Act provides only for a form of financial reporting to confirm that Commonwealth grants were expended on approved projects. In the case of Urban Local roads, most States have adopted the option available under the Act to submit programs of allocations to individual State and Local Government Authorities for expenditure on these roads rather than submit detailed programs of projects.

(3)   Because of their bulk, I have arranged for details of projects on Urban Local roads which I have approved as being eligible for assistance from Commonwealth grants under the Act for 1976-77, and details of allocations which I have approved to State and Local Government Authorities for expenditure on Urban Local roads during 1976-77, to be forwarded direct to Mr Morris' office.

(4)   Information concerning the estimated dates of completion of projects is not supplied by a State where it submits a program of projects.
