Driving down Melbourne’s Swanston Street is something that wasn’t been possible since 1992: the year when the section between Flinders and La Trobe Streets was closed to private cars and redeveloped as Swanston Street Walk. If you can’t remember what the journey was like back then, here is a video from 1988 (via Youtube).
In 1999 the street was partially reopened, with cars being allowed in between 7pm and 7am each day. The final change occurred in 2011 when cars were again banned, in conjunction with the construction of four new platform stops for tram passengers.
Despite the ban, some interstate people still try to drive down Swanston Street, like this car with South Australian registration plates.
This tourist in their campervan also seemed a tad lost…
