Southern Cross Drive: Main Community Route to Kippax

Southern Cross Drive between Belconnen and Kippax is officially a Main Community Route but it is currently not compliant with the ACT Government’s Active Travel Standards. On both sides of the street west of Kingsford Smith Drive we find poorly maintained, narrow concrete paths. As a Main Community Route it should be replaced by a wider cycle path of at least 2.5 m width.

Molonglo 3 to Belconnen: which route?

The Molonglo 3 East Future Urban Area will open up new ways to ride to Belconnen from south to north around 2030-2035. Austroads recommends gradients below 5% for comfortable riding. Direct routes are otherwise preferred. What route options does Molonglo 3 East provide? We consider routes from John Gorton Drive Bridge to Kippax Group Centre and Belconnen Town Centre.
