I’m seeking Research into:
Further investigation into reducing freight movements and creating true intermodal hubs
High quality data on emissions per passenger kilometre for each public transport mode

Resource:
Federal funding of urban public transport (a sensible proportion of the $24 billion AusLink funding)

Local action:
Safe Copenhagen-style bike paths in Melbourne city and surrounding suburbs – a network
Interest in a group of university-based researchers in Melbourne to link to CSIRO Natural Incentives re urban (sustainable) regeneration
