Hugh Batrouney, Grattan Institute: The spatial structure of cities: how our cities have absorbed growth
For all their success, many of Australia’s cities are now needing to pay ever-greater attention to managing the downsides of growth. Recent Grattan Institute research has looked at how urban spatial structures – patterns of travel between home and work – have evolved in the face of rapid population growth over the last decade. This presentation will cover this research, and what governments can learn from it.
