SYDNEY, November 10. /TASS/. The new rules for public transport were introduced in the Australian city of Brisbane, where the G20 summit will be held on November 15-16. During the following week the city buses will not follow their usual routes through the city center, but instead will deliver passengers to specially organized interchange stations on the borders of the district, where the Brisbane Exhibition Center and other major sites of the summit are situated. Passengers wishing to get into the area, will have to use special transport, while walking or driving in a number of areas will be limited only by passes and accreditation.

The Ministry of Defense reported that in the next three days the Australian Air Force planes will conduct training flights over Brisbane, to be better prepared to defend the air space of the city.

According to organizers, around 5,300 people will arrive to Brisbane within official delegations. The summit will be covered by approximately 2,300 journalists. In turn, representatives of the police reported that the order in the city will be supported by more than 6,000 policemen from Queensland and other Australian states and more than 200 guards from New Zealand. All officers will be armed.
