The infrastructure conundrum
Two thirds of Australians now live in our capital cities, and the growth of our urban nation continues to accelerate at an ever-increasing rate.
According to Infrastructure Australia, the percentage of city dwellers will rise from 69.3 per cent in 2031 to 73.4 per cent by 2061. By then, up to 15.7 million Australians will live in our capital cities.
Accommodating this growth will be one of the great challenges of our nation’s city-builders in the decades to come. Read our recent article “The Infrastructure Conundrum” by Director Gillian Cottle and let us know your thoughts on how we will meet the infrastructure needs of this population growth.
