Councillor Christine Forster notified by the Lord Mayor that the NSW Liberal-National Coalition State Government has approved the installation of a new rainbow crossing at the corner of Bourke and Campbell streets next to Taylor Square. The rainbow crossing will be reviewed after six months by the Roads and Maritime Service and if it has proved to be safe then it will be made permanent

Christine said, “I first wrote to the Minister for Roads asking for the installation of this rainbow crossing in July 2016. I’m thrilled to see that finally what I requested 2 years ago will come to fruition in time for the 40th anniversary of the 1st Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras on 24 June” just in time for Sydney Pride Week.

“I know that the rainbow crossing will become a celebrated and iconic landmark in the heart of Sydney’s LGBTQI community.” – CF
