Fairer funding and financing of faster rail

Report of the Inquiry into options for financing faster rail
High-speed rail Infrastructure funding Major projects Transport infrastructure Australia

This report acknowledges that there are a range of options available for financing and funding rail infrastructure projects, and discusses the significant role for the Australian government in funding and in strategic planning for rail infrastructure projects.

It discusses maximising opportunities for value sharing, where rail infrastructure projects, wholly, or partially funded, by the Australian Government results in significant value uplifts for beneficiaries.

It also considers how capturing this property value uplift can help to pay for rail projects, and by extension reduce the burden on current and future taxpayers who are paying for this infrastructure.
