Minister Shane Rattenbury (Minister for Territory and Municipal Services) officially opened the new on-road cycle lanes on Glenora Drive on Friday 14 December 2012.
Glenora Drive is 1.2 km long and links Pialligo Avenue and Fairbairn (the old RAAF area on the eastern side of Canberra Airport). The Fairbairn area is being developed for commercial purposes with some 500 people currently working there and a few residents (in the old RAAF quarters).
The new lanes were provided jointly by the ACT government and the Canberra Airport.
Stephen Byron (Canberra Airport managing director) was in attendance and spoke at the opening.
Pedal Power ACT representatives attended the official opening and thanked Shane and Stephen for providing the new facility that is likely to be well used by some of the 500 people who work at Fairbairn.
