The 2017 ACT Household Travel Survey took place in 2017 and was published in 2018. The next 2022 ACT Household Travel Survey has gone to tender in 2022 but we not see the results until 2023. With the 2022 ACT Household Travel Survey report a year away, it seemed to be a good time to look back on the 2017 Survey.
The tender for the 2022 ACT and Queanbeyan Household Travel Survey has been released but do not expect any results soon. The tender (71271‐RFT‐001) expects that the data will not be available until April 2023 – a year away.
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.
A brief introduction of active travel at a non-technical level. This submission is not about the technical aspects of active travel, which is well documented in the ACT Active Travel Key Documents. Combined with Austroads Standards there is enough there to build a good network. We are not failing because of a lack of standards. Rather the problem lies elsewhere.
A strong political wind would push cycling forward in Canberra. The lack of political will has left cycling in the doldrums. ACT Transport’s paradigm lags behind best practice. A “one size fits all” approach fails to recognise that different modes of transport have different needs.
The fact sheet provides a quick introduction to the 2017 ACT Household Travel Survey and probably the best for most people: short and to the point and with nice graphs.
Canberra has four seasons but do we change our cycling habits over the year? It would be good to know.
Clear words for clear goals: making Active Travel meaningful. A post inspired by an email we sent to Shane Rattenbury on 24 February 2020 relating to the ACT Climate Change Strategy 2019-25.
