North Richmond Bridge

The Hon. PAUL GREEN: My question is directed to the Minister for Roads and Ports. Will the Minister update the House on the progress of the North Richmond Bridge? What is its expected date of completion? Have community concerns been expressed about the lack of enough lanes to accommodate the rapidly expanding urban growth in North Richmond?

The Hon. DUNCAN GAY: This is an important question and unlike some members opposite the Hon. Paul Green understands the importance of bridges to communities. The Hon. Paul Green has asked about specific details in relation to the expected completion date and its number of lanes, and I intend to provide a detailed answer by the end of question time, if possible. If not, I will provide an answer on notice.
