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"/
