  3. HSR defined Speeds: 250 km/h+ Infrastructure forms Requirements 3
  4. HSR applications worldwide Japan: Shi k J Shinkansen (1964) Europe: TGV (1981) and others Global expansion: boom period 4
  5. Why research now? Different context Public interest Environmental concerns Overseas success 5
  6. HSR Enablers in Australia Political interest P liti l i t t National t N ti l transport t policy calls Sustainability Increasing capacity Mature technology 6
  7. HSR Barriers in Australia Competing infrastructure initiatives Legacy of federalism Reluctance t i R l t to invest t taxpayer funding Lack of planning coordination Affordability of other modes 7
