TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILWAY. PROPOSAL BY SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE TO ALBANY. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 10 June 1897
TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILWAY. PROPOSAL BY SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE TO ALBANY. A transcontinental railway has been spoken of for fully 10 years, but the many varied projects which syndicates put forth never bore fruit of any description. The South Australian Government appears to have endeavored to resuscitate what would be a gigantic undertaking by securing an estimate of the cost of constructing a rail- way line to the border of Western Australia. This fact was communicated to the Western Australian Government, which was asked whether, in the event of South Australia being prepared to undertake the construction of the line, it would carry out a similar work on the other side, from Eucla to Albany. There are very many reasons why this colony cannot at present entertain the proposal for at least a few years to come, and an answer to this effect was sent to the South Aus- tralian Government.—Herald.
