The ACT Government has announced their Fast Track program. This program includes path infrastructure.

Pedal Power ACT has consistently lobbied the government to complete ‘missing links’ in the cycle network. At the last federal election, the Federal and ACT Labor pledged funding for cycle projects in the ACT. These projects are not currently included in the COVID-19 stimulus measures. Below are maps of other projects that are.
