High Speed Rail

RDA Hunter continues to advocate for the High Speed Rail Network construction on Australia’s East Coast and further, that the first part of construction commences within the Newcastle to Canberra section.

The benefits of this project include linking areas with the greatest concentration of population; HSRN’s potential as a commuter service between Newcastle, Central Coast, Sydney and Canberra increasing capacity to support growth in rail freight on other lines; and tourism benefits for the cities and regions included on the route.

RDA Hunter led a delegation to Canberra in 2012 to advocate for the project and maintains a watching brief.
