Major Cities Projects
The Australian Government is funding two major cities projects with a focus on public transport links for our major cities. The funding allocated to the projects is as follows:
$20 million in 2008–09 towards a detailed feasibility and business case study of the optimal route for a new rail tunnel corridor through inner city Brisbane, from Bowen Hills to Yeerongpilly.
$236 million over five years (including $7 million in 2008–09) towards the sinking of the central city section of the Perth to Fremantle railway line and construction of a new rail platform.
