Heidelberg Road is located at the northern tip of Yarra, with much of it forming a boundary with the City of Darebin.

Pop-up bicycle lanes

The state government Department of Transport has recognised Heidelberg Road as a Strategic Cycling Corridor, leading to the construction of a pop-up bicycle lane to decrease the level of traffic stress for people cycling.

The pop-up lanes connect to the existing bicycle lanes on Wellington Street and Albert Street, leading into the central business district.

Our view

Streets Alive Yarra applauds the state government for building the pop-up bicycle lane, and we hope that it can be made permanent.

Take action

Some people are protesting against the pop-up bicycle lanes, so a petition has been started to save them.
