Molonglo 3 East is in an early stage of planning and the significance easily missed driving by. In the Planning Design Framework the ACT Government outlines what it does and does not want, however, the intention is to leave plenty of space for good urban planning.
The Molonglo Valley floods regularly and one of the river level crossings has been washed away – again. This leaves the Molonglo with one less rideable crossing and fully intact cycle path. This might be the first, but it is not likely the last.

The post C10 Coombs to Civic Cycle Highway is a case study of a number of alternate routes for commuting between Coombs and Civic. This post adds to this with visualisations of the routes as “fly-by” videos.
