Melbourne is in the midst of a rail renaissance. The Government of Victoria is investing $57 billion in major infrastructure and smart technology projects to build more capacity on existing networks and to fund infrastructure improvements. New urban metro and suburban passenger rail projects will dominate the infrastructure pipeline for the next 30 years. These projects provide opportunities to fundamentally change future land use, evolve how Melburnians live, work and play, and continue to enhance Melbourne’s competitiveness as one of the world’s most-liveable cities.
“In Search of New Ground” visits four diverse and high growth cities in Asia Pacific including Mumbai, Singapore and Hong Kong, to facilitate an exchange of ideas and best practices on how to optimise the vital commodity of land, and achieve the right balance between design, land use and density across the world’s fastest-urbanising region.
Asia Society Australia’s Global Initiatives Programs bring the best of our 15 centres to Australia. Convened as both stand-alone events and ongoing collaborations, Asia Society Australia combines global reach with local networks to deliver an international portfolio of programs.
