A state Supreme Court justice has struck down a lawsuit from downtown residents critical of the New York City Police Department's World Trade Center security plan.

Police want to create a heavily guarded campus around the site, with walls, guard booths and traffic barriers to check vehicles for dangerous materials.

The $40 million security system will take several years to complete.

Residents argued that their neighborhood would become a gated community plagued by traffic jams and pollution from tourist buses.

Justice Margaret Chan ruled that although the screening areas were somewhat uninviting, they will not resemble the walled city that the residents were describing.
