Sydney’s building boom: Is infrastructure keeping up with development?

By Richard Glover on Matters of State

The State Government wants to see more homes created around transport hubs that are close to jobs. But often, that means building taller, higher-density apartments.

In this edition of Matters of State Wendy Harmer, Richard Glover and reporter Nick Dole discuss whether existing infrastructure like schools and roads are coping.

This podcast also looks at how things like open space, liveability and a sense of community are being affected, especially in the Sydney suburb of Ryde.
