High Speed Rail 


The preferred alignment of a national high speed rail network would include Wagga Wagga as a regional station and connect the city with Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane. The network is expected to carry over 80 million passengers annually and will increase the liveability and population growth of regional cities such as Wagga Wagga. 

National infrastructure such as a high speed rail network has the potential to significantly benefit regional development and should continue to be considered for future development. 


Key Stakeholders: 

Federal Government 
Wagga Wagga City Council 
Committee 4 Wagga 
Businesses 

Recommendation: 

Continue to prepare and plan for a national high speed rail network and include Wagga Wagga as a major regional station incorporated into the proposed southern alternate route of the city.
