Mainline Upgrading—Evaluation of a Range of Options for the Sydney—Brisbane Rail Link
This study is one of a series concerned with the evaluation of upgrading options for inter-capital rail links in Australia.
Analysis indicated that the Sydney to Brisbane line is already exhibiting signs of congestion and, given the expected traffic growth, will become seriously congested in the mid-1980s unless upgrading action is taken. The range of upgrading options considered include grade easement, centralised traffic control and crossing loop extensions.
