Professor John Stanley tells Dave Hobart faces more traffic congestion problems and slower public transport unless city planners make sensible land-use and transport decisions going forward.

 

An independent report , prepared by the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies at the University of Sydney, noted that Hobart was very low density and car dependent, and that structural changes in the economy were leading to the highest productivity jobs being located in central or inner parts of the city.

 

The author of the report, Professor John Stanley, says jobs were moving in at the same time as people were moving out for cheaper housing, and Hobart’s fringe densities were as low as they went in Australian cities.
