In 1979 we carried out a strategic policy study with the Director General of Transport of South Australia, under the title”Adelaide into the Eighties: Strategies and Directions for Transport Policy. Here you have a copy of the cover of the final report written back in 1980, but in which you will surely see many parallels to the present situation in Penang.
For now let us simply draw you attention to the fifty or so words that we selected from the full report to provide for the curious reader a kind of first mental map of what our approach was all about.
If we think about it for a moment, it might almost be a title page for the 2016 Sustainable Penang Transport Master Plan, that we think is still so much needed in Penang today.
The Adelaide report, and an Executive Summary, will be posted here in the coming week.
