In Search of New Ground

 

Melbourne is in the midst of a rail renaissance. However, the real question must be how will this unprecedented investment in rail best serve our current and future communities? As Melbourne heads towards a population of eight million people by 2060, how can we ensure that this renaissance will enable the city to grow equitably?

The Government of Victoria is investing $57 billion in major infrastructure and smart technology projects to build more capacity on existing networks and to fund infrastructure improvements. New urban metro and suburban passenger rail projects will dominate the infrastructure pipeline for the next 30 years. These projects provide opportunities to fundamentally change future land use, evolve how Melbournians live, work and play, and continue to enhance Melbourne’s competitiveness as one of the world’s most-liveable cities.

With Asia Pacific home to the world’s fastest urbanisation, what can we learn from diverse and high-growth cities in the region to help Melbourne achieve the right balance between design, land use and density?
