Garry presented Fastrack Australia’s approach to High-Speed Rail to a meeting of the Southern Highlands Division of Engineers’ Australia on Thursday 25th May 2023. https://www.fastrackaustralia.net/_files/ugd/1b465e_712da7e06cbe4b23888bfd20e5361e92.pdf
Why we argue for High-Speed Rail (hint: its about decentralisation)
What High-Speed Rail means (hint: an integrated network)
Where HSR makes sense (hint: SE Australia)
How it should be built (hint: a staged approach over 30-40 years)
If we build it, how do we maximise its benefits (hint: freight as well as passengers)
When should we do it (hint: start as soon as possible in the Sydney – Canberra corridor)
The presentation draws on the latest work by Fastrack Australia, including on the Sydney – Canberra Corridor, and on High-Speed Rail and Freight.
If you have any questions on high-speed rail, this presentation might answer them.
