Cycling: Moncrieff Concept Plan

Moncrieff Concept Plan is found in the Territory Plan. Cycling is not mentioned all that often in the Territory Plan. Here are the extracts for Moncrieff.

The planned off-road bike paths are only discussed in vague terms. The Moncrieff Concept Plan does not include a network map. “Off-road local cycling facilities will be provided within the suburb,” but where is not stated.

4 CONCEPT PLAN

The Moncrieff Concept Plan is shown in Figure 3 and is supported by the Important Planning Requirements Figure 4.

5.7 Pedestrian / Cycle Network

Pedestrian paths are to be provided along all local streets and on both sides of the main roads within the suburb. Paths are also to connect to and link areas of open space, and connect to the
wider network and adjacent areas. The path network shall be convenient and safe movement within and through the suburb.

In accordance with the Draft Gungahlin Cycleway Master Plan, on-road cycling lanes are proposed along Horse Park Drive. In addition, a series of on-road and off-road local cycling facilities will be provided within the suburb. These local facilities will be integrated and connected to the truck network.
