Updates to transport trends – June 2015

I’ve recently updated three posts on this blog to include the latest available data. Here is a short summary.

Transport greenhouse gas emissions

Australian domestic transport emissions have continued to rise and is now the sector with the biggest percentage growth since 1990. Domestic aviation emissions have tripled since 1990. Car emissions per kilometre were improving until 2007, but we appear to have gone backwards since then.

Are Australian cities becoming denser?

This fully revised post looks at calculating population-weighted density using a new population grid for Australia, which finally allows for an internationally comparable measure of city density. I’ve also taken a look at some smaller Australian cities. The data suggests Sydney, Melbourne and Perth have been densifying fastest in more recent years.
