In fact, the plan to build a high-speed rail between Melbourne and Sydney has been proposed in the 90s, but it has been limited by budget. In 2000, the estimated cost of the high-speed rail from Sydney to Canberra was as high as $45 billion, and it was rejected by the Howard government at that time🙅
