Simon Corbell has announced that segway hire in tourist areas will be allowed to keep going.
“Segways have become a notable and unique piece of the fabric around Lake Burley Griffin and have proved popular with locals and tourists alike, and a recent Segway review has not found any major safety issues with their continued use in this type of environment, under direct supervision,” Mr Corbell said.
“I have, however, made the decision based on the recommendations of a review conducted by the ACT Government, that Segways should not be allowed to be used for personal or commercial use on public roadways in the ACT as a general mode of transport.”
