ATS QLD – Sydney Heads Rail Tunnel

May 9 @ 5:30 pm

Led by the evening’s guest speaker Ted Nye, you will openly discuss the concept of a rail corridor solution for Sydney.

Forging a link between the Sydney Heads, the rail would connect the Sydney CBD through to Gosford via a 60km-long tunnel which extends from Bondi Junction in the Eastern Suburbs.
The result? Brookvale would become a new satellite CBD, with a 20-minute train available between there and Sydney CBD.

Amongst other rail solutions part of the project that will be discussed on the night, the rail upgrade would reduce urban traffic congestion, and more broadly, improve road safety by
reducing the number of cars on the road.

The evening will feature light refreshments and networking from 5.30pm before the presentation,
questions and discussions take place at 6.00pm.
