ACT Government Community Paths Program

The ACT Government has a Community Paths Program for active travel but only a small number are cycle paths. Of those, some have dedicated pages on the ACT Government website. Those pages are listed in this post.

The Community Paths Program should not be confused with the Fast Track COVID-19 stimulus package. Fast Track has increased the pace of path construction in the ACT.

Community Paths Program

We want people to choose to travel actively. Active travel improves health and wellbeing, reduces the prevalence of chronic diseases, creates accessible communities, and increases the social and economic prosperity of a community.

Each year a program of community path improvements is carried out. This includes adding new connections into the community path network and upgrading existing connections as needed.
