There’s all sorts of stuff piling in this week…
Sydney Australia is in the same boat as Atlanta, GA. No matter how much money they throw at transportation, congestion will only get worse. It’s more how fast things will get worse than whether they will or not.
What particularly entertains me about this article isn’t the article itself. It is this quote: “A Federal Government report predicts traffic around Sydney will skyrocket by 25 per cent within the next 20 years…”
Skyrocket? 25% in 20 years is smallllll growth. Very very sloooowwwww… That’s 1.12% per year. Less than inflation in the U.S. If only our citys’ congestion would grow so slowly.
