Welcome new champion – Amy Thompson

Streets Alive Yarra is building an online record of broad community support for walking, cycling, public transport, trees, and place making. One way that we do this is to have locals stand up as champions for their street or neighbourhood.

Please welcome our newest champion, Amy Thompson – our local champion for River Street.

I have lived in Richmond for 10 years and am an avid cyclist, both for sport and for transport. I am very fortunate to have the Capital City Trail at my doorstep which allows me to easily and safely get to my workplace in Southbank. I’ve noticed over the years that the area’s population is increasing and infrastructure is struggling to keep up – we need to move away from the ‘default’ of private car usage as the primary form of transport.
