Being an ex-Melburnian and recent interstate migrant I want to start a discussion on the state of metropolitan planning in Melbourne.
While I think the inner city areas of Melbourne are quite liveable I think the metropolitan area as a whole is very ordinary indeed. This is like most cities throughout the country I suppose but with Brisbane's busways, buz network, airport train etc some issues have been put into perspective for myself.
As a student I don't know if my comments are valid but having lived in Melbourne and knowing the city intimately I think that Melbourne is behind other Australian cities on the planning front.
What do you think?
