    These are going up in all the mainland capitals. Just looks like some big advertising screen. Might add some much needed flashiness to the west end of the mall - the Myer Centre killed that. http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b318/chrismicik/cx.jpg

    Recently I believe the SA State Govt passed a law allowing driverless/autonomous vehicles. At the time i thought that was a quirky announcement - but i'm all turned around on the topic. The needed technology already exists and many manufacturers are expected to provide such cars within the next few years. Also seems auto-manufacturers are worried about the potential BIG decline in sales - think 40+%, because of this...

Adelaide tops cities survey, Sydney last

Adelaide tops cities survey, Sydney last

Adelaide is the country's best-planned and most functional city, while Sydney languishes in last place.

Property groups have commissioned a KPMG audit which ranks capitals on effective city planning, including managing population growth, traffic congestion, and housing affordability.

The audit found smaller cities like Adelaide, Canberra and Darwin functioned the best.

Adelaide shone for being affordable and well-planned, while Brisbane joined its smaller counterparts in scoring well. The Queensland capital was praised for having good planning policies.

At the other end of the scale, the big cities of Melbourne, Perth and Sydney ranked poorly.

Sydney was panned for being unaffordable with too much traffic; planning policies were not great and were not implemented properly.

Melbourne was a mixed bag. The auditors found that good planning policies were in place, but authorities failed to deliver on the ground.

The audit was commissioned by "Built Environment Meets Parliament" (BEMP), an alliance of property groups including the Property Council of Australia and the Australian Institute of Architects.

The average mark for capital cities was 55 per cent. BEMP said the audit was a wake-up call to the federal government to be more hands-on with capital city planning.

Canberra should set a national urban policy with targets, streamline planning approval, and get involved in land release, the group said.

BEMP will hold a summit in parliament house on Wednesday to talk about what should be done.
