Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The head of Hunter Development Corporation says a proposed freight rail bypass of Newcastle is part of a 20-year Regional Infrastructure plan but it will not happen for many years.
Newcastle Council has asked the State and Federal Governments to commence a study of the bypass saying the project is needed to reduce delays at the Adamstown level crossing.
H-D-C General Manager Bob Hawes says the bypass was raised at a meeting of the Hunter Infrastructure Investment Board this week, but it is still years away.
"It's a big project," he said.
"We've got to identify a corridor, figure out how we're going to acquire it, how it's going to be funded.
"This is something that has to be worked through in terms of these infrastructure plans for the region.
"We're aware of it through the Hunter Infrastructure Investment Fund.
"It's a matter of us getting our thinking aligned and getting an outcome that we can all plan for and work towards."
