Coppins Crossing Road is an example of a popular Canberra road without bike lanes. As today is unofficial bike lane day, it is worth a closer look.
The Coppins Crossing is a river level crossing on the Molonglo River. The last section of the Coppins Crossing Road is sandwiched between the north and south sections of the John Gorton Drive duplication but the section around the river crossing remains and has long been a problem. It will be replaced with a bridge in 2024.
