Part of the series
With one car on our roads for nearly every man, woman and child in this country, solving traffic problems is a never-ending nightmare. Yet it's just another day at work for the road crews and traffic controllers who monitor Melbourne's roads via a vast system of cameras. Together they deal with one emergency after another in a vain attempt to keep the freeways flowing. Meanwhile, at Knox City Council a debate rages. Will the council recommend to State Government that further extensions to the current freeway system should cut through the suburb? But at what cost to the environment? Engineers and environmentalists compete to shape the transport options. But who will council support? The outcome surprises everyone.
