Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
FOR the first time, CityRail commuters should have uninterrupted mobile coverage between the city and the north shore.
The Transport Minister, Gladys Berejiklian, will announce today that Optus and Telstra mobile coverage will go live this week on the north shore and western lines underground between Central, Town Hall, North Sydney and Chatswood.
The announcement will also foreshadow more underground mobile coverage through the central business district, with plans in place to extend coverage on the City Circle and also along the eastern suburbs line.
Vodafone customers will have to wait, however, with equipment between Central and Chatswood to be rolled out in a couple of months.
"Optus first approached the previously named State Rail Authority in 1996 seeking to install network infrastructure to provide mobile phone coverage in the Sydney CBD underground rail network," Ms Berejiklian said.
"But Labor failed to do anything about it."
