ISPUT Website (Improve Sydney Public Transport) Contains And Supports:
- Train Drivers and Guards manning every Train for the safety of all passengers,
- Heavy Rail that connects with all other lines,
- 3 Light Rail routes,
- Bradfield Line with Double Track connection to Eastern Suburbs Line,
- Additional Platforms at Hornsby, St. Leonards, Redfern and North Strathfield Railway Stations,
- Sydney Harbour Heavy Rail Tunnel for HSR services to Brisbane and Gympie.
National Network Page
National Network Page supports Capital City-Capital City High Speed Rail aka Japan’s Bullet Train at 500 km/h.
National Network Page supports a Roll-on roll-off Rail Ferry across Bass Strait.
Australia’s National Party supports Inland Rail between Melbourne-Brisbane. Capital City-Capital City High Speed Rail at 500 Km/h will be no worse for everyone.
Cattle will be safer with High Speed Rail as it will not be possible to simply wander aimlessly across a 4 Track Rail Corridor.
Water pipelines will also be built alongside the 4 Track High Speed Rail Corridor for access to water and a natural flow of water.
All Railway Level Crossings will become road overpasses along every 4 Track High Speed Rail Corridor.
Sydney Planning Commission
Sydney Planning Commission supports a driverless train for Sydney and abolition of Heavy Rail.
Railway Interchanges work against the interest of commuters and an efficient single Heavy Rail network.
Policy of conversion of Heavy Railway Lines in Carlingford and Newcastle only serves to provide a disjointed and ineffective transport network.
Building a driverless railway just to justify building multi-storey blocks of units is not good planning policy as much as branch railway lines that do not connect to other railway lines.
Commuters need to be Front and Centre of decision making and as such Sydney only needs 1 single expanded Heavy Rail network.
Heavy Rail expansion must be continual and gradual and not just focus on building one railway line only.
Planned Metro Railway Station at Victoria Cross, North Sydney needs to have stair, escalator and lift access to the street and not just lift access as has been announced.
In the event of a fire or emergency, it is unsafe to have only lift access to the street.
Metro Rail Authority Act
Metro Rail Authority Act needs to be repealed by the New South Wales Parliament which enables just 1 single Heavy Rail network to operate for the maximum benefit of commuters.
In 1984, Victor P Taffa rode on a Driverless Train in the United States and is no better than Sydney’s Heavy Rail Trains.
Currently we have a bureaucratic fight going on between the Metro Rail Authority and Sydney Trains. Metro Rail Authority should be dissolved and the Metro Rail Authority Act repealed. Sydney only needs 1 single Heavy Rail Network administered by the same team of people.
Sydney only needed 1 single Heavy Rail Network during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games which moved large numbers of people safely and successfully.
- Sydney Heavy Rail Trains moves 1.2 Million people every weekday.
- 8 Car Double Deck Train moves 1,000 people safely.
Transport funding needs to be equivalent to Health and Education in all Federal, State and Territory Governments across Australia.
Railways and Tramways are underfunded and have failed to keep pace with population growth over several decades. Funding also involves the following sources:
- Railways Lottery
- Restaurant/Lounge Carriages (Expanded network enables greater capacity)
- Railway Bonds
Newcastle Railway Line
Rebuild the Newcastle Railway Line underground with rubber mixed in with concrete. This allows for movement as Newcastle is on an earthquake plate. Newcastle suffered a major earthquake of 5.6 on the Richter magnitude scale on 28 December 1989 which resulted in damage to buildings and deaths to 13 people and injuries to 160 people.
Mixing rubber with concrete is a practice done in Japan which also suffers from many earthquakes.
Newcastle Railway Line would be underground from Hamilton Junction to a point near Newcastle Railway Station whereby the line would emerge above ground to then serve Newcastle Railway Station.
Grade of line would be no steeper than that of the Epping-Chatswood Railway Line in Sydney.
Railway Interchange Platforms would be built directly below the Wickham Light Rail Platforms.
Carlingford Railway Line
Rebuild the Carlingford Railway Line underground from Epping Platforms 4, 5 & 6 and extend to Parramatta Platforms 5 & 6. From Parramatta and Mays Hill, the line continues along the route of Bus Transitway to Liverpool at grade level.
Carlingford Line at Epping will also connect directly with the North West Line which would revert to a Heavy Rail Line.
Epping-Chatswood Line would revert to Heavy Rail operations.
Epping Platform 4 and Parramatta Platforms 5 & 6 are currently unused and underground.
Railway Interchange Platforms would be built directly below the Carlingford Light Rail Platforms.
Bankstown Railway Line
Rebuild the Bankstown Railway Line as Heavy Rail operations and reinstate the Strathfield-Regents Park and Bankstown Heavy Rail services.
Reopen the Regents Park-Southern Line section for Heavy Rail operations.
Western Sydney Orbital Railway Line
- Western Sydney Orbital Line from North-West Line to Southern Line via Western Sydney Airport.
Western Sydney Orbital Railway Line will enable passengers to catch the same train when boarding at Chatswood and Macquarie Park to go to Western Sydney Airport.
Western Sydney Orbital Railway Line is a plan that Victor P Taffa lodged in a Public Submission as part of a Federal Government EIS for Western Sydney Airport Transport needs.
Western Sydney Orbital Railway Line needs to be operational when the new Airport opens. Sydney had to have the Airport Railway Line opened before the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games opening ceremony and similarly a railway line needs to be opened from Day 1 of Western Sydney Airport operations.
Western Sydney hosted many Olympic Games events during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and as such the Western Sydney Orbital Railway Line needs to be in operation from Day 1 of Airport Operations.
However, for workers constructing the new Airport and residents living in proximity to the new Transport facility the Western Sydney Orbital Railway Line needs to be operational before Day 1 of Airport operations.
On Heavy Rail Standard Gauge Tracks and with fast signalling the Western Sydney Orbital Railway Line will run from the North-West Line to Southern Line via Ropes Creek Line (Rebuilt) and Western Sydney Airport.
Western Sydney Airport will be a new Transport facility. However, this does not remove the need for Capital City-Capital City High Speed Rail train operating at 500 km/h.
Features of Western Sydney Orbital Railway Line Include:
- North West Heavy Rail services to Southern Line via Western Sydney Airport,
- Rebuild Ropes Creek Line and connect to North West Line at Riverstone,
- Commence Richmond-Epping via Castle Hill service
- Install Double Track Diamond Junction at North West/Richmond Lines Junction,
- Install Double Track Rail Overpass at North West/Richmond Lines Junction,
- Install Double Track Sets of Points at Vineyard,
- Install Double Track Diamond Junction at St. Marys,
- Install Double Track Rail Overpass at St. Marys to Western Sydney Airport,
- Install Double Track Y Link for South West Line/Southern Line Junction.
