Proper public transport.
We destroyed most of our original transport system during previous recessions, and completely and totally ignored the chance to build a modern one during our boom.
It’s time we did it properly, and just built a damn system.It has to be done.
We need to ensure that all the outlying commuter towns and villages have proper connections to each other and the city centre to try and reduce the cars in the city.We also need to make sure they’ve got proper facilities…enough schools, shops, sports facilities etc.If you go to small towns up in the Alps in Europe, they have sports centres that would put us to shame. And they are all public ones…pay a few euro and anyone can use the tennis courts/pools/gym/ice skating rinks etc. I know these towns have strong tourist economies, but we had more money than any of them and we couldn’t manage that in our city, let alone the outlying suburbs.
The problem is that too much depends on who is in power. And those in power are hard to convince.
