MOVING & SHAPING MELBOURNE: COMMUNITIES, ROADS, PUBLIC TRANSPORT & DEVELOPMENT
Around the world people are moving to cities, drawn by jobs, culture, lifestyle, services, opportunity and everything else that a buzzing metropolis has to offer. Melbourne is no exception. Yet with growth come challenges. How do we avoid gridlock as more and more people move through our streets? Can we build an urban transport system that supports a dynamic economy and enhances the quality of public space? Our expert panel will share their knowledge in a focussed discussion on the way transport shapes the city, greases the economic wheels and the influences community life.
