“Brad leaves home at 6.30am to avoid the crush. Is it early enough?”

An extra 1.3 million people in Sydney by 2030 is an enormous load on our roads and transport system.

Mathew Hounsell, senior research consultant at the Institute for Sustainable Futures at UTS, says Sydney must be fundamentally realigned to avoid the perils of crippling congestion.

“The underlying problem in Sydney is the preference for motoring. If the rail system is faster, people will switch to it,” he says.

“If you prioritise car traffic, car traffic is always terrible. If you prioritise public transport, car traffic is still terrible but more people can be moved.”
