Bridge paths—petition 2-18

By Ms Le Couteur, from 9 residents:

To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory

The following residents of the ACT draw to the attention of the Assembly that the walk around Lake Burley Griffin is becoming increasingly popular and congested. The most popular route for tourists, walkers, joggers, families and dogs is between the two bridges and this route has now become dangerous. It is the preferred route used by unregistered bicycle riders who are able to legally reach speeds of 50km an hour. With urban infill generally, but particularly in Campbell and Kingston Foreshores, this congestion will only increase.

Pedal Power has long been advocating for separation on the lake path. Pedal Power sees this as a practical solution to avoiding harm to people walking and cycling. We, the undersigned, would like to add our voices to that of Pedal Power.

To facilitate the safety of all groups, the signatories to this petition ask that a transport bike lane be created to separate the more leisurely groups from those who undertake the route at a much higher speed.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the Assembly to call on the ACT Government to:

*

work with the National Capital Planning Authority on a works program to define a two-way dedicated bike path both sides of Lake Burley Griffin between Commonwealth Avenue and Kings Avenue bridges;

*

erect signs to define the speed limit of bikes using the shared path to 10km an hour;

*

erect signs on both bridges instructing bike riders to dismount and walk across the narrow path across the bridges.
