Transport is correctly identified as key to the future of Sydney residents.

In this episode we discussed:

‘As Sydney has grown over the last few decades, infrastructure has not kept pace with population growth. By 2020, traffic congestion will cost Sydney’s annual economy $8 billion in lost productivity and our airport will have run out of peak hour capacity; we are facing a crisis. What can be done to fix it?’

This episode focussed on Transport, and discussed whether Sydney needs an extensive underground metro system like other world cities such as London & New York. We also tackled Sydney’s inadequate road network, investigate the recently announced Westconnex Freeway plan, and debate Sydney’s controversial second airport.
