Today we turned the sod on the Belco Bikeway! 🎉
This 4.7 kilometre route - significant parts of which will have separated pedestrian and cycle ways - was a key recommendation in the Belconnen Town Centre Master Plan. It will reopen the derelict Joynton Smith busway back into public use, and then connect through Emu Bank and up to College Street all the way to Haydon Drive.
200 trees and 4000 shrubs will be planted as part of this initiative. 🌳🌿🌳🌿
The work will be completed within the next year. In the future we will also see better pedestrian and cycling connections down Benjamin Way, as well as the completion of the missing lakeside path link in front of Belconnen Arts Centre.
