The construction of the Belconnen Bikeway started last year and some progress has been made. The separated bike and pedestrian paths along the old bus road are finished but not open. Construction has started on Emu Bank. The section through the University of Canberra is largely finished.
Update 6 February 2021 Belconnen Bikeway
The construction along Emu Bank was completed just before the Christmas 2020. However, the construction of the section promised at the 2016 ACT Election along Benjamin Way has not yet begun.
