The bicycle path along Heysen Street is keenly awaited. The current project ends at Devonport Street. As you can see that still leaves a gap. As of July 2020, a further segment was promised. Heysen Street Links is part of the Woden Renewal.

Status update 25 July 2020: construction has not begun.

* The second stage of the Heysen Street Link in Lyons - a new 2.5m wide off-road asphalt shared path along Launceston Street from Burnie Street to the underpass near the Lyons shops.
