It's been 30 years since the first discussions about implementing high speed rail in Australia, and it's back on the agenda again. The question remains, is it a viable option for Australia as we work towards population growth and lowering emissions?

Join CEDA's expert panel of thought leaders in the high speed rail debate to explore the challenges, opportunities and implications of a high speed rail in Australia.

  • What are the benefits and how can we tackle the geological, environmental and economic challenges?
  • What can Australia learn from international models and case studies?
  • Who will create and maintain the high speed rail infrastructure? What is the right model and system to create an efficient and commercially successful enterprise?
  • What direction should the Federal Government's $20 million feasibility study take?

Hear from the experts the reality of high speed rail in Australia, add your voice to the discussion and gain valuable insights into the potential opportunities for your organisation.
