A street which used to be a road with parking for cars is now a pedestrian zone with trees and flower beds full of plants. This is thanks to the green deputy mayor of Vienna, Ms Birgit Hebein, who wants to use various measures to cool the city's hot streets and create a more pleasant place to live.
