Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
Stage two of the Federal Government's feasibility study into high speed rail along Australia's east coast is underway, with Albury Wodonga on the list of proposed 'stops' along the way.
But we get plenty of callers who say a very fast train (VFT) network will never be built in Australia and all this talk is 'pie in the sky' stuff.
Matt McInness disagrees. He's executive manager of rail systems, mobility and logistics with Siemens Pty Ltd (which has delivered high speed rail all over the world including Germany, Switzerland and China) and he spoke about high speed rail at a transport forum in Melbourne on Friday.
This morning, Mr McInnes told Joseph Thomsen there's no reason why we couldn't have very fast trains in Australia - and it would bring significant benefits to our region.
