Population Explosion in Ellenbrook, Baldivis and Canning Vale

RP Data has come out with the Top 30 suburbs for total population growth in the last five years. If you have ever passed through the Nicholson Road roundabout during peak hour, it wouldn't surprise you that Canning Vale is 8th in the country in total population growth. Not as bad as Ellenbrook which has added almost 10,000 residents into their suburb in the past five years making it the 4th fastest growing suburb in Australia. Far south near Rockingham is Baldivis, the region's winner in total population growth. A suburb's growth may not always be considered a good thing when infrastructure such as roads etc are not growing at the rate of the population leading to congestion problems. This is a factor to consider when looking at these figures.
