Passenger trains are the most efficient form of transport and are resistant to congestion. Newcastle city has an anticipated growth of 10000 to 12000 people in the foreseeable future through the Newcastle Urban Renewal Strategy. Keeping the trains is the best way to keep vehicular emissions low and move large amounts of people. It supports the current small business owners of the East End and Mall now, and assists future growth. The trains provide large volume services without congestion for major events held at the foreshore.
