    Our friends at Streets Alive Yarra support support the proposed trials:

    “The key point is to build a culture of trials to enable residents to experience what it will be like. It’s a new type of community engagement. We expect that most people will end up supporting the treatments, once they’ve had a chance to see them and test them.

    Even better, we expect that improving infrastructure for people who walk and cycle will bring benefits for people who drive, because it reduce the number of cars on the road. It’s a win-win, both for public health and for the liveability of our city. We applaud the report and urge Councillors to proceed with the implementation of the proposed COVID-19 response trials”
