Belconnen Bikeway

Project description

Construction is now underway on the Belconnen Bikeway. The new bikeway will deliver a network that makes it easier for people to get around the Belconnen Town Centre, providing better links to the surrounding suburbs. It will benefit both commuters and locals who just like to get active.

The 4.7 kilometre bikeway, comprising both shared and separated cycling and pedestrian facilities, will improve accessibility, provide safer and faster commutes and deliver more opportunities for wekeend recreation.

It will start on Coulter Drive in Florey and continue along the old busway on Joynton Smith Drive to the Belconnen Town Centre, continuing along Emu Bank through to the University of Canberra to Haydon Drive via College Street.

It includes:

  • 1400 metres of shared path
  • 1475 metres of pedestrian only path
  • 2141 metres of cyclist only path
  • 440 metre on-road cycleway through the old busway on Joynton Smith Drive.

We will also be planting around 200 trees and approximately 4000 shrubs.

Take a look at the final designs.

Funding Value: $6.22 million
