Japan Express ‘Dream’: New South Wales Prime Minister

New South Wales Prime Minister Dominic Beirut has taken a trip on one of Japan’s famous bullet trains, which can reach speeds of up to 300 kilometers per hour, with the aim of accelerating his government’s vision of faster train travel back home.

Perrotett, who is on a 10-day trade mission in Asia, traveled from Tokyo to Hiroshima on Saturday with Transportation and Veterans Affairs Secretary David Elliott, and high school students from across the state who joined the trip to learn more about the horrors of the world. The second war.

The state government has earmarked $500 million in its latest budget for a high-speed rail link between Newcastle and Sydney across the Central Coast, which the prime minister says shows his commitment to making faster rail a reality for NSW commuters.

“Our focus was half a billion dollars and the federal government…has allocated the same amount…to improve tracks and improve tracks means that trains travel faster,” Beirut told reporters outside the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. museum.

“It’s important to plan ahead and dream about what travel could look like decades later.

“The bullet train, like what we see here from Tokyo to Hiroshima, is not coming any time soon to NSW.

“But we are looking at ways we can preserve the lanes and invest in our (rail) system to become more efficient so that travelers can get from Sydney to the Central Coast faster.”

Torkel Patterson, a board member of Japan Central Corporation that operates world-renowned bullet trains in the country, briefed Mr. Beirut on Saturday about how Australia’s east coast has had a similar travel experience.

The route was suggested to be Newcastle – Parramatta – Badgres Creek and to the country’s capital, Canberra, with Melbourne as the final destination.

A stand-alone model that bypasses other networks – as used by express trains in Japan – will involve tunneling through the roughly 870-kilometer terrain, Patterson told AAP on the Shinkansen N700 on Saturday.

Mr. Patterson proposed a 50-50 joint partnership between the federal state to finance the costly project.

Mr Elliott was optimistic about the prospect of the bullet train becoming a reality in NSW transport but did not stick to a timetable.

“Are we going to see this kind of rail transport in NSW in the future? We certainly will,” he said.

“When you look at travel times, the dedicated lane is the most attractive, but like everything we do in government, there’s going to be a cost-benefit analysis.”

But talk of fast trains and faster travel times will continue to take a back seat as the government and passengers grapple with more industrial measures on the state’s rail network next week.

The NSW Rail, Tram and Bus Association has called for a four-hour stoppage starting on July 28, with the measure expected to have an impact in the hours before and after workers’ disruption tools.

The federation and the government remain at odds over a new foundation agreement as well as safety concerns about the new Korean intercity fleet currently being built.

Mr. Perrottet was forceful Saturday in refusing to commit to the $264 million set for safety modifications requested by unions to the fleet without first completing the foundation agreement.

“I’m not going to put hundreds of millions of dollars into retrofitting perfectly good trains and then make a foundation agreement that hasn’t been finalised,” he said.

“As a result, the trains are not running on the rails and we are continuing industrial work in our state. This will not happen under my supervision.”
