Region. Need to reverse trend

The Urban Taskforce Australia has released a report, Jobs in Western Sydney, Redressing the Balance, which finds that the most important issue in improving Sydney’s transport and infrastructure problem is to reverse the 200,000 commuters heading daily from the region to work in other parts of the metropolitan area. “By 2031, there are likely to be over 300,000 commuters unless we take more actions to dramatically increase job opportunities in Western Sydney,” said taskforce CEO, Chris Johnson. The Urban Taskforce is a property development industry group.
