Shane Rattenbury has announced that airport employees can now cycle to work more easily. Assuming they like the long distances from the nearest housing.
Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Shane Rattenbury today joined Stephen Byron, Managing Director of Canberra Airport, to officially open the new on-road cycle lanes on Glenora Drive in Majura.
“The $1.1 million upgrade, jointly funded between the ACT Government and the Canberra Airport, will provide access to Canberra’s cycling network for the 500 workers within the Fairbairn precinct,” Mr Rattenbury said.
“Workers can now commute from across Canberra, along the recently upgraded Molonglo River off-road and the Pialligo Avenue on-road cycling infrastructure, to Glenora Drive and Fairbairn.
“The completed works have upgraded the road to include a 1.5 metre wide cycle lane on both sides of the two kilometre stretch.”
