TRAMS IN THE CBD

What occurred to me about the dreadful incident in Melbourne CBD Friday was that Melbourne appears to have been paralysed with no cross traffic across the main streets of the CBD.
This would happen here in Sydney in the future with trams traversing George St etc.
Trams are not flexible – they cannot cross intersections if anything is impeding their progress – as in Melbourne.
Is anyone giving thought to this situation should it happen in Sydney – George St. I am reminded of the days of trams in George St – traffic was halted if anything stopped the trams.
