National Growth Areas Alliance

As the peak group representing Australia’s fast growing outer suburbs, the National Growth Areas Alliance simply seeks a fair go for the millions who live on the outskirts of our capital cities.

From Penrith in Sydney’s west through to Wanneroo in Perth’s north, the residents of our outer suburbs don’t have the same access to infrastructure that other Australians enjoy.

Already there are nightmare commutes on our roads and public transport: and that’s without the additional pressure of another 2.5 million residents in the next 15 years.

Governments must act now and invest in infrastructure to ease congestion, cost of living and stress. That foresight will also lead to improved equity, more local jobs and a permanent boost in national GDP.
