Let’s build a beautiful, liveable and accessible city
Streets Alive Yarra is a resident & ratepayer action group with a vision for thriving neighbourhoods where streets are used by people of all ages, irrespective of whether they choose to walk, cycle, use public transport or drive.
Independent mobility for children
With calmed 30 km/h streets in each neighbourhood leading to a network of protected bicycle lanes that cross Yarra, our children will be able to safely walk or ride to school, sport or their friends’ houses.
Seniors can age in their own home
With a network of smooth, wide, level footpaths, seats to rest, and trees for shade; seniors will be able to safely access shops and services, and thus age for longer in their own home.
Traders receive regular, repeat patronage
With 20-minute neighbourhoods based around 30 km/h superblocks that support walking and cycling to shops, traders will benefit from regular, repeat patronage from local residents.
