Re: Sydney to Melbourne Maglev via Canberra

Because some people were worried about Parrahub being too small, it now is 300m x 336m high with each of the 5376 units being 600m2 with fresh air being drawn in. The extra commercial space would cover the strata fees and some retirees may run a B&B to cover the $2m purchase cost. Some of the 20,000...

Re: Sydney to Melbourne Maglev via Canberra

It says here http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S1679-78252011000300001 in conclusions that the German Maglev should be OK with elevated guideway but I believe not only can you have 11 psi atmosphere in a single tunnel but there would be far less risk. I believe rare earths are i...

Re: Sydney to Melbourne Maglev via Canberra

Some people do not believe a 14m diameter single tunnel driven with 20 hardrock TBM costing $200m each connecting Parrahub/Canberra airport allowing a 600km/h proven Japanese maglev would be done in five years for $20b. From what I have read it is the tunnel that costs all the money in Japan https:/...

Re: Sydney to Melbourne Maglev via Canberra

If the launch shafts have an exhaust valve fitted to allow the pressure in front of the Maglev out then as long as the air pressure does not get below that of a plane interior at 6,000 ft the maglev would have less piston effect allowing it to reach greater speeds. People could then enter the stati...

Re: Covid-19

It is hard to believe that a country as clever as Australia is still trying to quarantine in places that get cold at night in hotels.

Why not just put some tents on an aircraft carrier anchored near Brisbane?

Re: Sydney to Melbourne Maglev via Canberra

As the Japanese maglev https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Cy_Ie6JZWs takes 3 minutes and 22 kilometres to reach 600km/h I think it would be better to only have passing stations at 200km intervals through a straight tunnel rather than going on the surface like CLARA Where there is proven demand Parrahu...

Re: Covid-19

It seems to me the problem with the quarantine is the aerosols in poorly ventilated buildings and as winter is approaching, I suggest hiring a few cruise ships to be anchored in northern Australia allowing the people in quarantine to even sleep on the deck if they wish.

Hmm. This catched my eye because I am interested in MagLev and potential. But I'm thinking you're no so serious. Your link have the connection but are beside the ball, not so solid or with depth. Good luck with the task but I think you are more fan than man with correct impact. Australia is having ...
