The new railway between Sydney and Melbourne is expected to cost about $200 billion, which will include 8 stops between the two cities. This high speed train Sydney to Melbourne is a dream in the pipeline. The high speed rail plan connecting Sydney to Melbourne is estimated to be capable of making the journey in about 2 hours and 44 minutes. That is if the train stops at all 8 stop-overs. If not, the journey could be accomplished in just 2 hours. By car, the journey could be as much as 10 hours. Plenty of research has gone into this rail plan and it has been confirmed over and over again that this high speed train Sydney to Melbourne is a viable option. Experts on this enormous project say that it could be ‘set into action’ in the next few years and that the high-speed train should be up and running in around 30 years, that is, by the year 2045.
