New Active Travel Design Guide will help climate and congestion


ACT Greens Spokesperson for Transport Jo Clay has welcomed the release of the ACT Government’s Draft Active Travel Design Guide which will see Canberra’s roads and paths built to be safer with walking and riding front of mind. 

“These changes to how we build our roads and paths will be a great improvement to how we get around Canberra,” said Jo Clay, ACT Greens Spokesperson for Transport. 

“They will help address two growing problems in our city - transport emissions and congestion - by making public and active transport a better and more accessible option for Canberrans.” 

“Good design is essential for keeping people safe and encouraging more people to walk, ride and roll around our city.” 

“I thank the Minister for introducing this Draft Design Guide. I strongly encourage Government to fund and implement these changes as soon as possible. We must make sure our city is planned in the right way so that it is safe for those who are travelling outside a car. This design guide is an important step towards that goal.”
