Steve Ingrouille, from the Australian group “Going Solar”, puts out a weekly newsletter on transport and urban development matters. This week’s newsletter has some interesting information on high-speed rail in Spain:There was an interesting article in the NZ Herald on the weekend about the enormous investment China is making in High-Speed Rail (unfortunately not online).
While high-speed rail is certainly unlikely to ever be viable in New Zealand, it is certainly interesting to see what’s happening internationally. It will be exciting if the USA rolls out a true high-speed rail network over the next decade or so. It seems like a fairly naturally suitable country for that kind of network.
