Horse-drawn carriages will be banned from next month in Melbourne’s Central Business District.
Operators can work on the outskirts of the city, such as on the grounds of the Royal Botanic Gardens and other parks.
Transport Minister Ben Carroll said carriages pose a safety risk to commuters, pedestrians and drivers in the city center.
Carroll told reporters on May 12, “Multiple safety issues, especially for tram networks and U-turns, but also for many different pedestrians who want to get where they need to go. There was a problem .. “.
According to Carroll, CBD has only about four operators left, and many in Victoria.
“We are there to help them and move on to what we consider to be a better habit for them, a better option for their horses, and also a better option for tourists. “Masu,” Carroll said.
