Perth: the rise of a sustainable city

11 Feb 2015
Description

Professor Peter Newman from Curtin University claims that Perth is much more than a relic of the 'Wild West'. The population is growing and it is suggested that there'll be a population of about five million by 2050. The infrastructure has grown remarkably over the years. 25 years ago Perth had virtually no railway system. Now there are more than 70 million passengers a year travelling on railways to the north and south. And there are other areas which have been developed and designed to make Perth in Western Australia a more interesting, lively and sustainable city.

Guests
