Brisbane and South East Queensland are facing spectacular growth pressures but have discovered that the promise of motordom, in the form of numerous road tunnels, has been a rabbit hole and a chimera, not a panacea. There is a renewed focus on rapid transit, be it busways, heavy rail or light rail, as the structuring elements in a city-region that is developing a unique subtropical architectural and urban form vernacular specific to its place and context. Find out more about these exciting developments with Greg Vann, project director, Shaping South East Queensland, and a guest moderator in SFU's Next-Generation Transportation Certificate. Moderated by Gordon Price, instructor for SFU's Next-Generation Transportation Certificate.
