CBR Cycle Routes are motorways for cyclists, or at least that is the intent. You would know them as you would have ridden on one. Finally, they are getting wayfinding signage. It makes a difference.
Promised and finally coming.
Signs and pavement marking
Signs will be installed and pavements marked on the following four routes:
- Cycle route 1 (C1): City to Gungahlin
- Cycle route 4 (C4): Belconnen to Weston Creek / Weston Creek to Tuggeranong
- Cycle route 5 (C5): City to Woden / Woden to Tuggeranong
- Cycle route 6 (C6): ANU to Dickson
The website also provides a cycling network map (below) of Canberra’s 10 principal cycle routes (PCR). “Principal cycle routes” is a term from the Active Travel Guidelines. “Principal cycle routes” was not catchy enough, and therefore branded “CBR Cycle Routes” but they are the same thing.
The Fast Track program has provided more funds for wayfinding signage on the following routes.
- Cycle route 7 (C7): Belconnen to Gungahlin
- Cycle route 9 (C9): Gungahlin to Airport
- Cycle route 3 (C3): City to Belconnen
- Cycle route 8 (C8): City loop
The routes map
The Active Travel Infrastructure Practitioner Tool show existing and future CBR Cycle Routes. An enlargement of part of the CBR Cycle Routes map from the Active Travel Infrastructure Practitioner Tool below shows the C10 Molonglo to City cycle route. This route is planned but has not yet been built. Planned routes are shown as dotted lines and. existing routes as solid lines.
The map provided below (found here) shows only the existing routes that will be signed. The Molonglo Valley is left blank as in this area there are no routes at this time.
