Sydney to Melbourne Japanese maglev via Canberra and Albury

 
  eddyb Assistant Commissioner

I now realise that China is stuck with trucks as you cannot use freight on HSR but it is a golden opportunity to transition our unemployed coal  miners to connect Parrahub to Canberra with a Japanese maglev which would do 700 km/h in a single breathable 11 psi 14 meter diameter tunnel costing $20b and taking five years as stage one of Sydney to Melbourne.


The overnight container trains would beat any truck between freight sidings by 8 hours ready for delivery the very next day charging $1/kg. and earning $20,000,000 per night making daytime fares below planes saving 5,000,000 tonnes of jet fuel per year.

Just a friendly reminder that recreational use is only decriminalised, not legalised.

Well as you are speaking on behalf of everyone perhaps you could be more explicit.

As I am 77 years old it really is up to others to decide if they want to get stuck with trucks like China’s HSR and a thankyou to whoever liked my maglev suggestion.

He thinks you've been smoking too much hooch or whatever they call mary jane these days. Please bear in mind Eddyb there are some subscribers who post in these page who absolutely do NOT support any expansion of the nations rail network, no matter what form it may take.

It would be an absolute finacial disastor

Also freight is charged Gross-t/km

I believe customers would pay $1/kg bbetween Sydney and Melbourne to deliver it the very next morning.

There is only 1% of palatised freight goes by rail with the rest wrecking the Hume (Goulburn and Marulan) with 700,000 overnight B doubles per year.

It has got me beat why you think it would be a financial disaster?

$1 per kg assume flat rate for a 25t container is $25,000.

By road around $5/km for 900 km is $4500, let's call it $10,000 to cover all basis.

Yes it is the same cost as planes but half the customers would still pay it to get their freight for next morning delivery because they want everything yesterday.
