Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Wagga Wagga City Council says it is continuing to work with its commercial partners in funding the Bomen rail freight hub.
Regional Development Australia (RDA) Riverina Chairman Tom Watson has been assured the $14 million allocated to the project by the federal government will be forthcoming.
It comes after the Opposition claimed RDA grant funding would be diverted to spend on new government promises.
Wagga Council's Economic Development Director Peter Adams says there is still much work to do on the $60 million project.
"Now we're in the process of working through all the complexities of the legislative requirements and the negotiations to bring it all to head," he said.
"But that's a process that'll continue towards the end of this year, until it's finalised and everything's signed on the dotted line because commercial partners need to put business cases to their boards and get them signed off."
Mr Adams says negotiations are continuing with commercial partners.
"So we're very confident and we've got great relationships with all involved," he said.
"Sixty million dollar projects that involve state, federal and local government as well as a range of industry stakeholders are complex projects.
"So I'm more than confident we'll be putting in a proposal in front of council before the end of the year to make sure it gets its final tick of approval locally and we're all on track."
