Council considers rail boom gates to be a viable solution for future rail expansion

Council considers rail boom gates to be a viable solution for future rail expansion

Tasmania should be on the hook for around $100 billion when the current scheme expires, and is unlikely to recoup the cost when new lines are built

The government’s response to a parliamentary report whapronxich called for a rail boom gate to ease some of the concerns about the future of passenger services, appears to be moving in that direction

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says the rail system will keep getting faster, cheaper and less congested – as long as people can afford the trains

Labor has vowed to continue the push for a rail boom gate. Opposition transport spokesperson Andrew Leigh said that despite the current government not being keen to expand the current system, the ‘unprecedented demand’ would still need a boom gate in place.

Labor is now considering the boom gate option – something that may be considered by the government when it next looks to build rail lines, writes Tony Jones.

However it also wants it to be a non-permanent solution.

It would give the government a chance to say: ‘This government understands the significant issue surrounding the future of passenger services. We recognise that the current approach to rapid transit is not suitable for us in the near future and we must look at alternative and innovative means of connecting the suburbs with train services and, if need be, a boom gate may be appropriate.’

The boom gates are supposed to be installed automatically as the trains take to the roads. But with trains becoming more efficient, train drivers are using them to speed them up.

The federal government says the cost of the boom gates, in addition to running up the budget of the current transit agency, would be the first payment made to the current owners of the railway.

But Transport Minister Darren Chester has repeatedly ruled out any increase to the cost. He recently claimed the costs would be ”tentative and only very small”.

He also pointed to the state government’s promise that the rail boom gates would have no cost to the state.

But Labor’s transport spokesman Andrew Leigh has challenged the minister.

He said in October, when the rail industry first told the House of Representatives tha
