The New South Wales Government has announced plans to redesign the forecourt area of the Sydney Opera House in an effort to reduce the number of accidents involving pedestrians at the venue.

Since its opening in 1973, there have been over 200 serious incidents, with the number of minor accidents close to one a day. The long flight of steps is part of the problem, but a more pressing concern is the traffic around the forecourt, with the most serious accidents involving pedestrians being hit by goods vehicles.


For the record, I have never had an accident at the Sydney Opera House. Also for the record, I have never been to Australia.
