Transport system not ready for Olympics

DOES anyone really think that SEQ could deliver the Olympic Games in 2028?

We are talking about a jurisdiction that cannot even run a suburban railway system or embrace essential bus network reform.

The only reason the Olympics is back in the news is because Mr Coates was desperate to survive the challenge as head of the AOC. There is value in the Council of Mayors (SEQ) exploring the notion of the Olympics as it does highlight the gross deficiencies we have particularly with transport.

Based on present and past experience it is unlikely that various agencies and authorities could get their collective acts together in time to sort the issues.
