It is time 
Australia joined
the high speed rail revolution

It is time we joined the countries around the world to implement high speed rail for regional growth and economic development.  We need to start reserving the corridors and building the lines that will transform the settlement and economy for the benefit of all Australians.

​This paper focuses on the implications of using an integrated network design for the Sydney-Newcastle corridor by maximising the use of both the existing and the new line.  This can be achieved by enabling higher capacity intercity trains from Newcastle and the Central Coast to join the high-speed line at junctions at Hawkesbury River and at Tuggerah, and then proceed to Central Station via either Epping or Rosehill on the high speed line, bypassing the Cowan Bank and Hornsby.  Adopting this approach allows a staged approach to build the high speed line, with each stage enabling the introduction of new passenger services into the corridor.


We want to see high speed rail operating in Australia.  It will help balance our population and economic growth, and contribute to reducing impacts of congestion and unaffordable housing in our major cities.

We have produced a number of reports and papers to address key issues and provide solutions for the implementation of high speed rail in Australia.  These have been developed with assistance from a range of experts in the fields of engineering, planning, economics and transport systems.

"Fastrack has come up with a sensible and compelling proposal to construct high speed rail from Sydney to Melbourne, which will revitalise regional NSW and Victoria, and transform the way Australians travel forever."
