Brisbane Inner City Rail Capacity Study

According to a story in today's Brisbane Sunday Mail, there is a 'bold new government plan' to develop new a new underground railway for Brisbane:

BRISBANE could have two under-the-river rail tunnels and a new rail bridge in a bold State Government public transport plan.

There could be major new train stations at Woolloongabba, Gardens Point and the "financial district" at Eagle St, and a redeveloped Exhibition line for year-round use.

Transport and Main Roads Minister Paul Lucas will today unveil details of a $5 million feasibility study to develop options for connecting the rail network north and south of the Brisbane River.

I don't think I will be breaking any rules of confidentiality if I mention that this project is one of the reasons I haven't been able to post anything in the last month :-p
