Coppins Crossing Road is an example of a popular Canberra road without bike lanes. As today is our unofficial bike lane day, it is worth a closer look.
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.
Coppins Crossing Road is currently a low-level crossing over the Molonglo River. Active travellers are hit the hardest when direct routes are lacking.
Several different materials are used to build paths in Canberra, but what is the cost of path construction. The per kilometre cost of bike paths is a small fraction of that of a dual-lane carriageway. This is an argument to spend more on paths but does not answer the question of the cost of path types.
The Australian Austroads cycling path standards includes recommendations on path widths. The recommended path widths are wider than the vast majority of community and shared paths in Canberra. The Austroads AGRD06A standard is more detailed than the ACT equivalent and complement and flesh out the local standard.
