High Speed Rail
High-speed rail (HSR): HSR will provide Canberra & the east coast of Australia with cheaper, faster and better interstate transport options. It will create 1000’s of jobs and a whole new industry for Canberra and Australia. HSR will deliver massive economic development and growth for Canberra and the region.
HSR Funding: I propose setting up an east coast (VIC, QLD, NSW and ACT) Government run lottery to raise the money to buy and secure the land on the east coast route. Similar to recent lottery setup in the UK for the Olympics infrastructure and most famously the lottery that was set up to fund the building of the Sydney Opera House.
