Melbourne steps up – what about us?

Here’s a very watchable video drawing on the Moving Melbourne series of seminars. Melbourne is expecting a 25% population increase by 2031 and the city’s leaders are focussing on how to manage and improve the transport options to not only cope with demand but enhance the city’s livability. Moving Melbourne drew on people from within the city and around the world to discuss how best to do this. And boy do they have some clever thinking.

Wellington is likewise expecting a 25% increase in that period. I’d like to see the same kind of leadership from the people in charge of our region.

    what about us…? indeed. it seems like our answers are trickling down from parliament, and those answers are: more roads, more cars.

    sigh…
