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.

Urban planning cycle: 40 years is not unusual

If estate planning is done poorly and good bike infrastructure is not included in the original design and built, then the new suburb will discourage cycling. Without good bike infrastructure, most people will not develop the habit of cycling. It will be decades before the opportunity will arise again to get it right.
