A HIGH SPEED Rail Forum held by Regional Development Australia Central Coast last month saw nearly fifty Central Coast community and business leaders learn of the opportunities and benefits that a High Speed Train would bring to the Central Coast.

Keynote speaker was Shohei Yoshida, General Manager of the Sydney Office of the Central Japan Railway Co (JRC) owner, operator and innovator of the Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train system linking Japan’s principal metropolitan areas of Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka since 1964. Also speaking was CCBR Editor Edgar Adams who focused on the economic opportunities a high speed rail service between Sydney and Newcastle would bring to the region and the importance of working with the Hunter region group advocating for High Speed Rail. In support of this project Lederer Group’s Steve McGillivray informed the group on changes to the Gosford CBD and how that could influence a HSR service through Gosford. Mr Yoshida highlighted JRC’s fifty year history with a perfect safety record and no accidents resulting in fatalities while maintaining absolute punctuality.
