The “20-minute city “ no more National transports analyst Austroads: -Adelaide's morning traffic crush had increased by 30 per cent since 1997/98 -Adelaide rush hour holds up motorists by 44 seconds for every kilometres travelled compared to 33secs/km in 1997/98. http://www.news.com.au/adelaidenow/story/0,22606,21440849-5006301,00.html
HOW MUCH TIME WASTE ?
For an average motorist driving 15km to work daily:
-A day : 15km X 44seconds = 11 minutes
-A week: 15km X 44seconds X 5 days= 55 minutes
-An annually: 15km X 44seconds X 365 days= 48 hours

The optimal way – Public transport
Increasing road capacity
“ The general nature of this problem has been evident to those dealing with congestion aspect of transportation capacity.”
Use public transport
“ Huge efficiency gains could be achieved by allocating segregated lanes for buses and trams, Massive investment is also needed to improve the frequency and connectedness of bus, train and tram services in order to increase the capacity and effectiveness of these modes. “
"Significant effort is going into maximizing the performance of the existing traffic system”
