Monlonglo Valley: congestion certain
Molonglo has only 5000 residents currently and the traffic chaos might lead us to think it cannot get much worse. Molonglo is at the beginning of a rapid growth spurt and for the next decade the congestion will grow rapidly.
Molonglo Valley: getting it right first time round
The Molonglo Valley is currently under construction and the cycling infrastructure is poor. If we wait until a suburb is finished then the problem will be with us for decades. This is what is happening now in the Molonglo Valley estate development.
Stuck with no place to go: child friendly means playgrounds need toilets
Parenting is looking after your children’s needs. Public toilets are essential infrastructure for families. Taking your children to a public place means you will need a public toilet.

Cycle infrastructure in Wright and Coombs
Once the suburb is built, its design is set in stone.

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.
