For cycling, ACT Labor is the driving force. The ACT Greens in comparison have proven unable to deliver on their ideas. Worse still, the ACT Greens have failed to approached cycling advocacy strategically. ACT Labor is delivering on its election pledges, although the achievement humble, as ACT Labor do not plan to do much. They lack the ambition necessary to get cycling moving in the ACT.

Minister Steels statement in the ACT Legislative Assembly, 3 June 2021, provided little new information, but confirmed of further transport investment in improvement and duplication of roads. Cycling projects were not mentioned except one, the long awaited bridge over Weston Creek.
