I spent yesterday in Brisbane, up on the 6:05am and back on the 6:10pm.  I encountered frustrating traffic congestion in the morning and afternoon.  I don’t have high expectations of state governments except when it comes to planning.  Traffic goes to the heart of being planning for and managing growth.  Brisbane is so bad one has to now fly in the night before to be on time for a morning appointments.  Likewise, you either leave early afternoon or late at night.
