About Fastrack Australia
Fastrack Australia is a not for profit website to promote the development of high-speed rail in South-East Australia to enable a more balanced pattern of population and economic growth, which will address issues such as congestion and unaffordable housing in our major cities.
It was started by Dr Glazebrook to show how we can implement high speed rail to transform movement of passengers and freight in Australia. It will transform our population settlement patterns and help us reach net zero by 2050.
The reports on this website are designed to address and provide solutions into specific aspects of high speed rail in Australia. They have been produced by Fastrack contributors, with assistance from a range of experts in the fields of engineering, planning, economics and transport systems.
