Faster Rail

The 2017 Budget includes a $20m commitment by the Australian Government to investigate improvements to the rail passenger connections between our cities and surrounding regional areas through the funding of up to three business cases.

This measure supports the continued economic success of cities and their surrounding regions by investigating options for faster travel times, rail upgrades and/or new infrastructure.
