ALP leader Anthony Albanese has promised a high-speed rail network from “Sydney to Beijing” as the 2022 federal election campaign ramps up.
Albanese stated that this would be an integral part of the Belt and Road deal. The Port of Darwin, the Port of Newcastle and Chatswood have all been listed as potential sites for an EZFKA rail hub.
“High speed rail has proven an election winner and along with the NBN, this will define the ALP’s path to victory that takes us through China and beyond,” Albanese said.
“We all know that high speed rail direct to our largest trading partner will really get the economy going again and restart migration. We have to think about potential board positions in post-political careers as well, I’m sure John Holland will be most reciprocal.”
Meanwhile, $2 billion has already been set aside for unionists and bureaucrats to sit on more feasibility studies that go nowhere, with payments alleged to be made in Aldi bags post-election.
