Heidelberg Road is located at the northern tip of Yarra, with much of it forming a boundary with the City of Darebin.
Heidelberg Road supports businesses and residences, and is also a transport corridor.
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.
Streets Alive Yarra applauds the state government for building the pop-up bicycle lane, and we hope that it can be made permanent.
Some people are protesting against the pop-up bicycle lanes, so a petition has been started to save them.
