“Rail line will be staying” : NSW Premier

  • Save Our Rail welcomes the NSW Government decision to retain rail services to Newcastle.
  • We will be constructively engaging in discussions with the government regarding the $20 million.
  • We do not accept the Chamber of Commerce model as workable because of major technical flaws and concern over the proposed change of mode which would impact on less mobile passengers.
  • Save Our Rail is planning alternatives for the use of the $20 million which could involve additional crossings, spanning Stewart Ave, and programs of enhancement and access to Newcastle Station.
