High Speed Rail Authority will be established in the Latrobe Valley by a Liberal Nationals Government to manage the delivery of European-style High Speed Rail right across Victoria, Opposition Leader Matthew Guy said.

High Speed Rail Authority and its staff will be based in the Latrobe Valley for the duration of the 10 year construction project.

“High Speed Rail will be for regional Victorians by regional Victorians and not Melbourne bureaucrats.” Mr. Guy said.

High Speed Rail Authority will oversee this project which will employ around 10,000 Victorians.



European-style High Speed Rail will mean passengers on the Melbourne-Traralgon route will save 67 minutes on their current journey with a new commute time of just 65 minutes for the 160 km journey.

Reaching speeds of up to 200 km/h, Victoria’s new High Speed rail network will be the fastest in Australia.

Bringing Victoria’s cities closer together with European-style High Speed Rail is the cornerstone of the Liberal Nationals’ plan to ease the population squeeze by decentralising our jobs and our population.


Time Savings From Melbourne

  • Geelong In 32 minutes
  • Ballarat In 45 minutes
  • Traralgon In 65 minutes
  • Bendigo In 70 minutes

A Liberal Nationals Government will make sure Victorians benefit from our record investment in infrastructure across all of our state.

“Our record investment in strategic infrastructure to decentralise our jobs and our population will create tens of thousands of jobs for Victorians and opportunities for businesses and local suppliers.” Shadow Minister for Public Transport David Davis said.

Victoria State Election will be held on 24 November 2018.
