Fly by Rail - Beyond Zero Emissions

High Speed Rail report launch  

We are delighted you can join BZE at a premiere event in Sydney where we will unveil this key report with industry experts and political representatives.

This event will present the key findings from the High Speed Rail report. Following this will be a Q and A session with an expert panel to discuss issues relating to implementation as well as the social and economic opportunities.

Expert panellists include:

  • Bryan Nye - CEO, Australasian Railway Association
  • Geoff Kettle, Mayor of Goulburn
  • John Black, Emeritus Professor, Transport, UNSW
  • Phil Potterton, GHD
  • Nigel Lake, Joint CEO, Pottinger
  • Philipp Bergeron, DLR (German Aerospace Centre)

The High Speed Rail report will show that Australia can:

  • Connect  Brisbane - Sydney - Melbourne with stations at six major cities and twelve regional towns en route
  • Enable passengers to travel between Sydney and Melbourne and between Sydney and Brisbane in less than three hours
  • Have trains departing major cities every ten minutes at peak times
  • Provide a station within 50km for 60% of Australia's population
  • Be powered by 100% renewable energy enabling zero emissions travel
  • Repay capital investments and generate long term profits
  • Provide lower fares and more convenience than air travel
  • Be operational in ten years

The HSR Project is a collaboration between Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE), the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), and the Melbourne Energy Institute (MEI).

BZE wishes to thank the Institute of Environmental Studies, UNSW for co-hosting this event.
