Bill would ensure no new tracks for Peninsula high speed rail
State Senator Jerry Hill unveiled legislation Friday that would ensure that California's proposed high speed rail project will not include a new set of tracks through the Peninsula.
Hill's bill has specific language to guarantee the high speed rail would run on the two existing tracks, sharing them with Caltrain.
High speed rail officials have already promised Hill they would not add two additional tracks, making it a total of four on the Peninsula, where many neighbors oppose the idea.
The deal includes making Caltrain run on electrical power, making high speed rail and Caltrain compatible with one another.
