George Street – imagine this being a pedestrian-friendly space full of trees

The City of Sydney Council has announced it is working in partnership with the NSW state government to create a people-orientated boulevard along the length of George Street in Sydney CBD. George Street will be pedestrian from Hunter Street to Bathurst Street & light rail will run every 2-minutes from Haymarket to Circular Quay.

There will be new public space, public art, revitalised laneways & a green outlook with more street trees.   On the strength of what is shown in the video I think this will be fabulous.  Hopefully they will add more trees than the video shows.  City of Sydney’s video can be viewed here –
