Introduction, by Sir Rod Eddington

"Melbourne’s long-term prosperity will require the city to find new ways to succeed and grow in a carbon-constrained world.

However, the evidence is clear that the number of trips made by car in Melbourne will increase by a substantial amount for the foreseeable future – and the city’s road network must be able to cope with this increasing demand in an efficient and sustainable manner."
