The ACT Government hailed the Butters Bridge as “a new cycling bridge in the Molonglo Valley” (Our Canberra, December 2016).
Unfortunately, this has turned out not the case. ACT Environment does not want cyclists to use it. The intentions for the bridge are discussed more at length here.
Now the bridge is block at one end.
Namarag Molonglo Special Purpose Reserve construction works have closed the Butters Bridge at its north end. Bridge access is possible from the south end (Denman Prospect) just for the view. (Stand 6 February 2021)
