Even as a Greens supporter, I'm with Shane on this one ultimately. We have better infrastructure projects. See also: Alan Davies' analysis a few days ago:

Australian capitals need a public transport transformation.  The political demands of the failing urban transport systems will simply make high speed rail unachievable for now.  The Greens should re-focus on urban public transport improvements as the main focus.  Once that is sorted then wider vision stuff can be revisited.
