Pedestrian-Friendly Sydney On the Way

Officials in Australia have announced plans to recast downtown Sydney as a pedestrian-friendly central business district.

The plan was recently announced by New South Wales Premier Kristina Keneally in conjunction with Sydney's Lord Mayor Clover Moore.

"The measures include slowing down traffic to 40 kilometres per hour and introducing light rail to the city centre.

Ms Keneally says the agreement will see the City of Sydney Council and the State Government work together on the changes over the next 5 years."
