Perception of safety is important to cycling.
Making sensible cycling investment requires an understanding of what good cycling infrastructure is and also where to build it. The UK Propensity to Cycle Tool suggests where routes are need most. Watch the video below.
A case study of Denman Prospect and Whitlam – two suburbs in the Molonglo Valley, south and north of the Molonglo River – that are of particular interest to active travel in the Monlonglo Valley.
Once the suburb is built, its design is set in stone. A coherent network of continuous bike paths across the city needs a master plan for bike path infrastructure, upon which new suburbs can be designed and realised so that the new infrastructure interconnects. Suburb design starts with the end in mind. The suburb is a small unit of the much larger and longer endeavour, to build active travel networks across the city.
