Issues related to the urban growth and decline along the foreshore of the inner harbour of sydney's CBD.
Why is landuse changing along the foreshores of Sydney Harbour?
Landuse along the foreshores of Sydney is always changing,

foreshore zone, in it's place. This is being done due to the population

So to fix this, the government decided it would be
better to try and consolidate the population of Sydney by building
upwards rather than outwards. They are doing this by building more
high rise apartment buildings and the like, to get more people into
smaller spaces. However, with this problems arose. One of these is the
increasing amount of traffic. With the large numbers of tourists
visiting Sydney and its' foreshores every day, and the number of cars
on the streets of Sydney around the foreshore already being large, an
increase in the number of residents would lead to an increase in the
number of cars on Sydney's streets. The Sydney City Council has tried
to solve this problem by promoting public transport, in an attempt to
cut down on the number of cars on Sydney's streets. They have used
slogans like "Keep On Training Sydney"...
