Run, walk and ride this autumn

We're making active travel improvements designed to provide accessible and safe cycling and walking infrastructure that encourages the community to get up and get moving.

In the spirit of Canberra Walk and Ride Week, which runs from 13 to 20 March 2020, we’re highlighting key active travel infrastructure projects that have been completed, are being constructed and due to commence construction around our city.

Canberra Walk and Ride Week provides a fantastic opportunity for the community to get out there and experience some of the new infrastructure improvements we have been making right across Canberra.

We've recently completed:

New path at Holy Spirit Primary School in Nicholls

New path at Florey Primary School

Improved line of sight at Harrison Primary School

Projects under construction:

Projects to begin construction this year:
