Letter to Yvette Berry, Minister for Housing and Suburban Development: the new Whitlam estate development falls short on active travel.
Active travel is on everybody’s lips and is more than cycling. The ACT Government now has a standard for good cycling infrastructure. The standard holds much promise.
For a strategy to be implement it must be specified in detail what the vague ambition means in concrete terms. Putting the financial cost of infrastructure to one side, what does it mean to build a bike path. For this the urban planning practitioners need a specification.
