The funny thing is despite the reality of Canberra, proponents still keep pointing to Beijing, Tokyo, London, Paris and New York.

I suppose it should come as no surprise, if proponents can’t do a simple cost benefit calculation on the $1billion dollar white whale of light rail, how can they be expected to do the sums on how many people actually live in a city.

Cute theory. Problem is, innumerable European cities of a size comparable to Canberra have well-developed public transport. Think systems using a combination of bike, bus, tram and rail infrastructure.

Self evidently, no one will use public transport unless there is a decent system in place. If the political will and the dollars can be found, of course Canberra can follow the lead of these cities.

Canberra’s utility and its lifestyle will suffer until this happens.
