The Comprehensive Transit Plan

Part II

 

The Basics

So where does this fantastic service run you ask? This HSR will serve the residents of the towns of cities of South East Nebraska via 35 stations along 1003km of track. This overall project cost is $25.497 Billion US dollars. That is more than $25 Million/km of track!

Below is a fact table for the lines [please refer to the Transit System Map above]

This massive system will of course be electric over head rail. The electricity will be supplied exclusively buy the Thorium Reactor in Plattsmouth. This will give the train the ability to travel at very high speeds. The trains will reach up to 210km/h in between stations. Some townships, cities, and towns have imposed speed limits along certain sections of track. This is to maintain safety in high density areas.

Some of the track is still going to be on existing rail line juring the first phase. Only a small portion of the network will travel on existing or "shared" lines.

To better Understand the Speed Zones and the existing track areas I have made a map:

Black - Existing/Shared Rail line

Green - 110-155km/h

Yellow - 156-175km/h

Red - 176-210km/h

The Omaha Plan

Omaha and many of the other cities have audacious task of buying land, creating easements and designing stations. Omaha's stretch of the HSR track will be 90% brand new track and only use a little existing track. This means they will have to create easements and buy land downtown to build a brand new main station.

Here is a picture of the Easements and redevelopment to happen in Omaha; HI RES PIC [LINK]
