Density debate a case of lost opportunities

A lack of vision from Perth planners of decades past has hamstrung efforts to get the most out of Perth’s rail system.

I have been working overseas for the last 20 years in china and middle east and it ceases to amaze me how Perth with great resource’s and more tax payers than the middle east has such a second rate public transport system ,the north to south freeway is a joke it was better in the 70s and 80s , every time I come back the freeway is worse traffic than high density China ,I feel Perth is a bit like Detroit USA and falling apart in the 21st century and can’t keep up with necessary progress .everything Perth dose seems to be for the short term construction they don’t plan for the future.
