Plenty Highway Rail Line
« on: January 25, 2009, 04:38:33 PM »
In the interest of Kick starting the Economy and taking pressure off the National Routes as well as providing employment to dis-placed workers, I suggest that a new rail line be constructed between Toowoomba and the Adelaide to Darwin Line.

The most direct route would be across the alignment of the Plenty Highway, the suggestion for a western rail by-pass of Brisbane would tie into this line well.

This line would cut the travel time for goods from East to West coast and free up a lot of space on the National Highways. The opportunity to bring prosperity to the many out back towns would be a commercial consideration as well.

Elmer Fudd strikes again, again somewhat less than practical.
The taxpayers, myself included, prefer something that is practical when they have to pay for it.
