You may be able to avoid the traffic jam by moving to Adelaide or Canberra, but if you do it you will get bored without boring.
This was the vision of the NSW Road Minister, Eric Roozendaal, who yesterday rejected the advertising campaigns of the governments of SA and ACT that targeted users of the Sydney rail network and its congested roads.
Some of Sydney's train stations were lined with signs saying, "You'd be home at this time if you lived in Adelaide."
"Anyone … was in Adelaide knows it's a rather boring place … Anyone who goes to Canberra knows Canberra is even more boring than Adelaide, and Sydney is the largest city in the country," Roozendaal said. He made comments when he announced that the Sydney Harbor Bridge will lose half of his money payment desks within two months, in another step towards creating a cash-free toll and improving traffic flow.
