The City of Melbourne undertook a smoke-free trial in The Causeway Lane (running between Little Collins Street and Bourke Street Mall). The six month trial began on Tuesday 1 October 2013.
During this time we gathered feedback about the pilot, and invited the community to post their comments in a forum. Due to a majority of support for the initiative, The Causeway became smoke-free in 2014.
Here is a selection of comments about The Causeway project on Twitter and Instagram
