I cant find your comments but most of the other contributors find the whole project a bit of a joke.

I agree with the comments HSR is a joke especially in a nation run by lawyers.

A self employed tradie needs a four bedroom unit so he can use one for an office https://www.afr.com/rich-list/high-rise ... 517-p57spw

I suggest he needs parking for his family car, trade ute and friends to visit as well.

If eddy wants to discuss his topic with anybody interested, there's no problem him having a thread here, even when there are no takers. It's not like it's getting in anybody's way, other than upsetting control freaks.

I have read that a Japanese guide way is the same cost as HSR and that figures especially as one third of HSR goes on maintenance

I heard today on the ABC that it is far better to use electricity directly rather than making green hydrogen for half the 1m B doubles Sydney/Melbourne every year.

They say here https://www.bitre.gov.au/sites/default/ ... ilways.pdf that even HSR costs between $16m to $110m per km between Parrahub and Canberra but as a straight 11psi tunnel can be built directly with 20 conventional Chinese hardrock TBM for $20b in five years we should use the Japanese maglev so when it is eventually connected Parrahub/Melbourne with passing stations at Canberra and Albury container trains from transport sidings can travel overnight as there is no maintenance required.

When I saw this documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_r0htm5uHPQ
I thought the Parrahub/Melbourne would be a great investment as the overnight container trains would get at least $2,000 per container.

According to the Parramatta council they never even thought of Parrahub/Canberra at their last meeting.

George VanZandbergen said he definitely would travel to Australia to experience Parrahub/Canberra.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wkgpxprl_5c&t=6s

HyperloopTT thinks that this would work https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijWIoF2QIuM but I believe it would be easier to load a container train in a siding for a 2 hour trip overnight saving 1m B doubles on the Hume per year and receiving $2,000 per container.

Does anyone believe we will still be building steel wheels on steel rails in 100 years.

I replied this to J Sterling here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjwF-STGtfE
As Japanese maglev needs no maintenance it could carry ISO standard carriages through the day and ISO standard containers overnight between 1am and 3am beating trucks by 8 hours over 1,000km and earning $2,000 per container.
Transport sidings could have a loaded train waiting to go city to city and single 14m diameter TBM driven single 11 psi tunnels would allow 700 km/h while people could still breath and not feel trapped.
