Thank you to everyone who used the interactive walking map to tell us what walking area priorities would make it easier for you to walk or ride more regularly. Consultation is now closed.

If you want to report a path maintenance issue, please go to Fix My Street.

Walking, cycling and other forms of active travel are at the centre of our plans to make Canberra an even more liveable and sustainable city. Having the right active travel infrastructure is important for making it easy and safe for people to choose active travel.

Canberra has an excellent network of shared paths and relatively quiet neighbourhood streets which make walking safe and accessible for most ages and abilities. Many paths follow routes that cannot be seen from busy roads making them more pleasant and sometimes more direct.

The priority walking areas map includes:

  • central walking areas where we would anticipate higher numbers of people to be walking and provide a higher level of urban design
  • primary walking areas where we would prioritise walking access to shops, schools, rapid bus and light rail stops
