    I can only hope that the government has made provisions for the infrastructure to support this population growth. I would say “No they have not” as they have made no provisions for the current population. A simple back of the envelope calculation would demonstrate this.

    We need dams (only 80 years behind the times) and a reliable cheap energy supply (Not possible with renewables) better road system (Sydney average travel speed 21km/hr), more schools and hospitals, more homes (Not multistory ghettos)

    The government has demonstrated that it is incapable of developing the infrastructure and what is done is overpriced.

    Hi Glenn,
    I enjoyed your article. I used to be a demographer in a previous life. Would be interesting to read a blog on how the projections and forecast change for Australia and maybe the major cities.
