Tant pis pour eux

MELBOURNE'S busiest intersection will be closed for an entire weekend in February during filming of a $180 million television series being produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.
A week after ridiculing the plans of five young environmentalists who wanted to stage a car-free day in the city, the State Government has backed the plan to close the intersection of Swanston and Flinders streets and all major roads feeding into it. [...]
In May, Lord Mayor John So agreed privately to help the film producers close the intersection from midnight on Friday, February 1, until 5am on Monday, February 4.
Trams, buses and taxis will be diverted for the weekend, while train travellers will be diverted from Flinders Street. Police have promised to move on people who inconvenience the film shoot.
