Flemington Road bike path is finished

The off-road bike path bypassing Mitchell on the Flemington Road has now been completed. The new path closes a missing link and opens interesting possibilities in the north.

History of the Flemington Road bike path

A blunder of urban planning resulted in a bike path disappearing from the map without the ACT Government noticing. The off-road bike path bypassing Mitchell on the Flemington Road was bulldozed to widen Flemington Road for the light rail. The ACT Government forgot to replace it and, after complaints, pledged to rebuild it.
