Map of 10 cycle routes

The ACT Government is improving cycle route signs to make them easier to find and use.

Canberra has many off-road paths but many people are unaware of how to use them to go to the shops, school or work without having to ride on busy roads. When asked what would make it safer for them to ride bicycles, second to new paths, Canberrans said they want more signs highlighting bicycle routes (Australian Cycling Participation Survey 2018).

The initial project will install signs and pavement markings on the following four routes:

A network map will also be installed near the Lyneham Wetlands.

For more information see Canberra's cycling network map which includes 10 principal cycle routes that connect the City, town centres, the Parliamentary Zone and major destinations. These routes are labelled by where they go and are colour coded and numbered.
