Is Sydney Australia's Answer To Los Angeles?

Is Australia's capital on its way to becoming an urban sprawl nightmare comparable to Los Angeles?

"It is time to shed light into the dark and fetid corner of the type of planning zealotry that predicts disaster, of Los-Angelean proportions, for Australian cities practising unsafe development without the protection of an urban growth boundary.

Let us measure our largest city, Sydney, and compare its sprawl with that of LA. Let us see how close to eternal damnation this sprawling city of sin is sailing."
