For a few years now, the ACT strategies have promoted a Movement and Place Framework. The idea, best shown in pictures, is difficult to put into practice, as it presumes the ACT Planning and Transport directorates work together.
The inability to shift transport investment away from roads is a concern. We cannot build our way out of congestion. We cannot break this cycle despite all the evidence to the contrary. The transport investment in 2020 has not changed. Most of the money will be spent on roads.
So much money is spent on roads. Here is a comparison of the investment in road improvement (duplications and widening) with other forms of transport. As cyclists, we are interested in bike paths but the light rail is included, too.
The duplication of Gundaroo Drive was completed and the bike path, part of the CBR Cycle Route C7, rebuilt. The old path was destroyed by the road widening work. This also happened with the Flemington Road path.
Crace offers much: a bike track looping the suburb, a magnificent view from Percival Hill, and the picturesque Gungahlin Pond. You can ride to all with only one quite road crossing, so it is ideal for the kids.
