Light rail continues to be a challenge for the ACT Government.
Most of the investment is still improving roads. The relative investment in road improvements ($986 million), light rail ($336 million) and cycling ($17.9 million) between 2020-2024.
New estates could showcase what Canberra could be.
Delays on light rail are a setback but there is an upside. There are a whole row of projects off the shelf, which have been sitting there gathering dust for lack of funding.
Much awaited and now finished. It is worth celebrating. After its destruction through road widening for the construction of the light rail, it has been finally rebuilt, but not as part of the light rail project.
The first cycling bridge planned for the Molonglo Valley.
The consultation for the Light Rail Stage 2 is currently open.
A blunder of urban planning resulted in a bike path disappearing from the map without the ACT Government noticing.
If there is one thing to be learned from urban planning in Canberra, then it is to plan your bike paths early, otherwise, they are likely to be forgotten. As a cyclist, we should be interested in the redevelopment of the Weston Basin on Lake Burley Griffin by the National Capital Authority.
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.
