What We Thought Would Kill Us

Progress Tracker: Ongoing


This series of reports investigates controversial and divisive projects in Perth’s recent history to determine whether they had a positive or negative impact in the long-term.

Seven case studies have been completed on; the development of Perth’s Bell Tower, the Perth to Mandurah Railway, Hillarys Boat Harbour, Perth Arena, the Raffles Waterfront Development, the Graham Farmer Freeway and Northbridge Tunnel and the Old Swan Brewery.
