This is quite a bold plan for Cairns.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, Cairns has the same population as Bendigo but is around twice its area. Both have a population of 146,000, Bendigo has an area of 146 sqkm and Cairns 244sqkm.

Seems a monumental waste of money when you consider that heavy rail already connects Gordonvale to Cairns and on to Redlynch.  If required to extend to Palm Cove, it would be easy to branch off from Aeroglen and continue north.  With only a few trains in/out of cairns daily, from south, and only two return Kuranda trains to the north, it would not be too difficult to slot in the new services.  Then again, heavy rail is no longer in vogue is it?
