Australia is planning to build five completely new cities and a high-speed rail to what The Sun called “lure Brits over and turn the country into a world leader.”
The cities will be built by a private group, CLARA. Three between Canberra and Sydney along with a new high-speed rail network which has a cost of around $75billion. The journey between the two capitals could take just 48 minutes and the trains would be travelling at speeds of up to 430km/h, news.com.au reported.
The rest of the two cities will be built between Melbourne and Greater Shepparton which would cost around $50 billion.
