Canberrans can now travel between Belconnen and Civic via an e-scooter under an expansion of the city’s designated riding zones.

The two riding zones are now connected via paths through Bruce Ridge.

As part of the expansions a 15km/h ‘slow zone’ will be in place around GIO stadium for 90 minutes before and after major events.

Calvary Hospital will also remain a ‘slow zone’ while riding will be prohibited at Radford College, Haydon Retirement Community, inside GIO stadium and Gossan Hill.

The changes are the first phase of a wider rollout across Canberra with e-scooter usage expected to be made available Woden, Gungahlin, Tuggeranong, Weston Creek and the Greater Belconnen area in the second half of this year.
