A media statement released by the Territory and Municipal Services today discusses the proposed plan for the Yarralumla Creek cycle path.
The Yarralumla Creek cycle bridge was washed away in December 2011 and is beyond repair. Currently a detour is set up that sends cyclists to Carruthers and then back to Yarra Glen.
Tony Gill outlines the new plan, which is expected to be completed by October 2012.
“Following an analysis of the damage, the ACT Government has chosen a preferred solution which redirects cyclists along the traffic bridge over Yarralumla Creek, adjacent to the Yarra Glen/Melrose Drive/Yamba Drive roundabout.” “This option would involve the construction of a 42 metre long cycle lane to connect Melrose Drive with the adjacent off-road cycle path.”
If you’re a cycling enthusiast around that area, the ACT Government is currently seeking feedback on the proposed plan before 28 May. You can either call Canberra Connect on 13 22 81 or visit www.timetotalk.act.gov.au for more information.
