Sydney's roads carry a heavy toll
I was interviewed Tuesday on local radio station 2SER: Sydney's roads carry a heavy toll.
Sydney currently has 9 toll roads with an additional 5 to come by 2023. This means that Sydney has the most toll roads by kilometre than any other urban area in the world. The goal here is obviously to make getting around Sydney easier, faster and less congested. However, with 15 toll points between the 9 roads, costs quickly add up for your average Sydney-sider, leaving many to wonder if the convenience is even worth the cost.
We were joined by David Levinson, Professor of Transport Engineering, School of Civil Engineering, University of Sydney to discuss the repercussions of these new tolls.
