Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Dozens of loudspeakers have been installed around Sydney's CBD to tell people what to do in the event of a major emergency like a terrorist attack.
New South Wales Police Minister David Campbell says the system is part of the Government's counter-terrorism initiatives announced two years ago and should be operational for next month's APEC summit.
Mr Campbell says the speakers can be used to deliver a range of messages to people in the city.
"If there were a terrorist event or a major building fire and there were people in the streets, this is a way of giving them information," Mr Campbell said.
"But equally, if there are a lot of people in the city, for example after New Year's Eve celebrations, it's a means of communicating with those people and saying, look you might be better to move from Circular Quay Station to Martin Place or Wynyard to get that train," he said.
