America, Mr D to ask the Minister of Transport
With reference to her reply to question 2404 on 21 November 2016, what (a) are the timelines for the update of the K53 Manual, (b) were the budget allocations for the (i) 2013-14, (ii) 2014-15 and (iii) 2015-16 financial years and (c)(i) amount was spent in each specified financial year and (ii) was the purpose for the spending in each case?
(a) The K53 revisions is currently being tabled at the Inter Provincial Policies and Procedures (IPPP) working group where after it will be tabled at the Traffic Legislation Technical Committee. Once approved by the Committee it will then be submitted to the Minister for endorsement to start with the consultations process. I am not at this stage able to provide definitive timelines as this would depend on how long the consultation processes take. It will probably take 18 months to conclude the entire consultative process.
(b) There were no special budget allocations for the K53 revision process.
(i) (ii) and (iii) Falls away.
(c) Falls away.
