Today the ACT Government announced a plan for an off-road cycle path allowing for a more environmentally friendly transit from Gungahlin to Campbell. With the plan in motion the ACT Government hopes for more people to ride to work and use the path for recreational purposes. With the increase of recreational use it thought to boost regional tourism and businesses.
“The proposed off-road shared path will provide another means for cyclists to get to and from work. It will also help recreational walkers and cyclists, as well as tourists, to access the various businesses along the route, the Majura pine plantation and other Majura Valley tourist facilities which are particularly popular on weekends.”
