Australia has always wanted a high speed train. The problem is there are great distances to travel and a complete rebuild of tracks will have to be done. Like roads in Australia there is not the money to put down a decent foundation for them like they do in Europe where people live close together.
If it was to be done the first location would be from Melbourne to Sydney. That is where most choose to travel for vacation and business. Governments of both political persuasions have set up inquiries then rejected the findings in the past.
Some are saying that with the economic downturn investment in a bullet train would create jobs. The real problem is who is going to pay for it?' Victoria and NSW say that the federal government should pay. A joint investment program will be needed, however.
