Another HS proposal for SYD CBR - who is CLARA?

20 Oct 2017. Australia. New cities and High-speed rail a step closer

A private group is looking to build five new cities and a high-speed rail network — which it hopes will transform Australia. Private group CLARA wants to build three "cities" between Canberra and Sydney along the rail link with a combined cost of A$75bn. The journey between the two capitals could take just 48 minutes and the trains would be travelling at speeds of up to 430km/h. A further two cities are planned along a Melbourne and Greater Shepparton route costing around A$51bn — with a 35-minute rail link. CLARA CEO Nick Cleary claims it won't technically cost taxpayers a cent, as it would be paid for with "private based value capture model" which would pull money from Asia. He said the only obstacle for the project is getting the political support. The group is looking to start construction in 2021 on the Sydney-Canberra route and believes its cities could be operational by 2026.

Last year Consolidated Land and Rail Australia (CLARA) released a proposal to build a high speed railway line between Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. It said that it had reached deals to secure half of the private land required. The line would include eight intermediate stations. An express service between Sydney and Melbourne would take one hour and 50 minutes, while an all stations service would link the two state capitals in two hours and 45 minutes.

I don’t know who is behind CLARA or how seriously they are taken.

They have a website:

No rail vehicle  has the speed or acceleration to do sydney to melbourne in less than 2 hours in any remotely costly manner.   Only way to do that with current tech is a dead straight maglev, which would most likely require a new dedicated power station.  We are talking hundreds of billions of dollars.  Even then, no commerical maglev is yet to obtain these speeds required.  Let alone average the,

We have been down this path before but in saying Sydney - Melbourne in 110 minutes for roughly 1,000 km they are going to need to average something well over 500 km/h especially when taking slower running around the terminals into account.

I said then, and I will say again - it's RUBBISH. Rolling Eyes

Before we go any further the original Poster did indicate he wanted to delte the thread, as it duplicates  several existing threads.

So I will lock this thread.
