AUSTRALIAN SOUTH COAST HIGH SPEED RAIL (November Lunch)
The November lunch will present a proposal for the first stage of a High Speed Rail from Bairnsdale to Adelaide
A group of Melbourne economists is developing an ambitious proposal for high speed commuting in capital cities to promote new principal activities centres. Rail links will extend into regions to promote regional development and affordable housing and to connect the respective state high speed lines for inter-capital expresses. The ideas are new, even radical, but many will agree that innovative thinking to promote regional development, housing and access to jobs is long overdue.
