Making City Spaces More Welcoming

A month long trial to make some City public spaces more people friendly will begin on Monday. We will provide chairs, tables and deck chairs were people can relax, read, meet friends and enjoy the late summer weather in Sydney Square, next to Town Hall and in Barrack Street, between York Street and George Street, near Wynyard Station. We'll also provide free public WiFi in Sydney Square. Barrack Street will operate from 11am to 3pm on weekdays and Sydney Square will operate 24 hours per day from 7am on Sundays until 10pm on Thursdays and from 7am to 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Barrack Street will be closed to traffic for the duration of the trial, which ends on 18 March. The trial is inspired by last year's visit and City Talk by Janette Sadik-Khan, New York's Transportation Commissioner, who has transformed streets and parks across her City.
