Grand opening Thursday October 12th at 9am, Alfred Street in Circular Quay, Sydney will transform into Future Street until the 15th.

Future Street is an installation that showcases a range of concepts that are influencing the way we design our streets, now, and into the future. The concepts include green street, complete streets and smart street elements that contribute to more productive, and more sustainable outcomes than present day.
A green street achieves multiple environmental benefits and ecosystem services, being designed to improve water quality, provide shade and reduce urban heat island effect, urban food production, habitat for wildlife, among other functions.
A complete street is a street for everyone, allowing movement of all forms – pedestrians, bikes, cars, public transit – in a safe way that promotes activity and exchange, between people and business.
A smart street is a street that uses technology and data to enhance its sustainability performance. It incorporates functions that include clean energy-powered and shared mobility, uses the Internet of Things to gather data and engage the community and asset managers, monitors the use of the street and provides a platform for reporting performance.
The interconnection (via the Internet) of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data.
