The Australian Government today called for high-quality proposals for the development of business cases to bring faster rail to Australian urban and regional areas.

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester and Minister for Urban Infrastructure Paul Fletcher were on the New South Wales Central Coast today to launch the Faster Rail Prospectus, which will start the process of bidding to build faster rail services.
