The ACT Projects Pipeline gives you and idea what the ACT Government (Major Projects Canberra) thinks will be coming up. For cycling there is not much new here, except the 2022 ACT Household Travel Survey has officially started, 5 years after the last survey. Good news.
Never heard of it? It is worth knowing about. TCCS announcements are few and far between.

An interesting list of upcoming projects in the ACT in 2021-2022 (stand 20 Jul 2021), including the new suburbs of Jacka (Gungahlin) and Whitlam (Molonglo Valley), and duplications such as Athllon Drive. The list is sorted by procurement start. Indicative package values are included for most projects (others are marked Not For Publication ie NFP)
Despite package values of less than $0.5 million, there are no cycling projects in this list. Any major cycling project planned in 2021-2022 should be found here. The list was update long after the 2020 ACT Election. As far as cycling is concerned, this cannot be seen in a positive light.
