$2.9 million for Canberra shared pathways - Media Release

$2.9 MILLION FOR CANBERRA SHARED PATHWAYS

A Shorten Labor Government would invest $2.9 million in shared pathways to improve access for cyclists and pedestrians in Canberra’s suburbs, in partnership with the ACT Labor Government. 

This election will be a choice between a Shorten Labor Government with a plan for the local infrastructure Canberra needs, or more of the Liberals’ cuts and chaos. 

Investing in this network of shared pathways will make it easier for Canberrans to enjoy the Territory’s great outdoor lifestyle, improving public amenities and safety at the same time. 

A Shorten Labor Government would complete five shared path projects in the Canberra suburbs of Wanniassa and Mitchell; and in Woden, Belconnen and the inner north.   

The national capital has many popular shared pathways around its lakes and suburbs. This investment from a Shorten Labor Government would fill in missing links in Canberra’s world-class cycling and shared path network. 

These projects have been identified by the ACT Labor Government as priorities and a Shorten Labor Government will make sure they are delivered. 

The $2.9 million investment is part of Labor’s $260 million National Bike Paths Strategy, which would provide the largest ever investment in shared pathways from the Federal Government. 

End the chaos. Vote for change. Vote for Labor.
