Chris also thinks it’s time to show the politicians that we’re sick of all the talk we want high speed action on high speed rail. Only we can make this happen. ?Now is the time to take a chance to make Australia’s
greatest infrastructure project a reality.
Trevor Anthoney Hume (Southern Sydney & Goulburn)
TREVOR ANTHONEY – Trevor is standing as a candidate in the seat of Hume because he believes high speed rail will be built on the Australian east coast in the future. Born in Gosford, he grew up in Lake Macquarie. Married with 2 beautiful children. Drummer, poet, artist, and philosopher with a non utilized Bachelor of Business degree from the University of Newcastle. Trevor thinks as both Sydney and Melbourne become mega cities, housing affordability and congestion are not going to be solved by building more toll roads. Australia needs to start planning and move positively towards establishing the necessary government framework to ‘make it happen’. By linking regional centres with high speed rail it becomes highly probable that regional development and economic growth will follow. Talk about jobs and growth? How about high speed rail! Even if we started planning today, high speed will likely take 5 – 7 years to fully complete the initial section from Sydney through Goulburn to Canberra. All we have to do is show the world that we are intent on building this ‘idea’, as there are many countries willing, right now, to contribute both technically and financially to this nation building project. After all, it’s not just a train, or just an ‘idea’, it is a future. Trevor was a house of reps candidate in Newcastle for the Bullet Train for Australia Party in the 2013 Federal election.
