The CLARA Plan

The CLARA Plan


The CLARA Plan is a multi-billion dollar project linking Sidney to Melbourne. This integrative project is looking to build advanced smart-cities between the two metropolitan areas of both cities, linking them by High-Speed Rail. The High-Speed Rail is worth $11.9 billion, and $3.49 billion per city in upfront infrastructure, including hospitals, transit systems, schools, water, energy, etc.

The Plan works to decentralize and re-locate the growing population into 8 Smart, sustainable cities along the Southeast coast.
The first stage will include 2 commercial and economic corridors:
- Sydney to Canberra, which includes three CLARA cities; and/ or
- Melbourne to Greater Shepparton, which includes two CLARA cities.

The total line will span 917 km along the 8 cities and will include the construction of 8 high speed stations enabling the new and existing communities to be within 35 minutes and 25 minutes respectively to the CBD of Melbourne. Phase One of the project is to be completed in 30 years including stations and HSR line.

CLARA will use a private based value capture model to provide the required resources from the value uplift of the land to fund the related infrastructure including the High Speed Rail.
