And I got upset because I couldn’t get to an airport conference room when Bush was in Columbus.
THREE city train stations and sections of the CBD will be shut down for three days in September when President George W Bush visits Sydney for the APEC summit.
The move comes on top of a plan to block mobile phones in the city centre to stop possible terrorist attacks on the US leader.
Prime Minister John Howard and NSW Premier Morris Iemma decided on the security measures for the summit of 21 world leaders after meeting in Sydney today.
Three city circle train stations – St James, Museum and Circular Quay – will all be closed between September 7 and 9.
In addition, some sections of the city will become restricted areas, but Mr Howard said the government would work with police to ensure the areas were minimised.
Do you the measures go too far? Tell us what you think.
APEC is the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference.
Hattip to this Australian blog, Sexualite. I can’t figure out how it showed up in traffic stats, but I love the first-hand how it affects the normal person view of Bush’s visit.
