Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Anthony Albanese says the Maldon to Dombarton rail line is a vital project for the Illawarra and should be assigned a higher priority by the NSW Government.
Mr Albanese says he's disappointed the recent NSW Infrastructure report lists the major project as low priority for the next 10 to 20 years.
He says the federal government has committed $30-million and he's seeking further talks with the state government over their position.
"This government is certainly determined to progress this project that's why we haven't just talked the talk, we have actually provided this funding," he says.
"We think this is a vital project for regional NSW and for the Illawarra in particular".
Mr Albanese has called for tenders for the next round of pre-construction work
to be managed by the NSW Government.
Tenders close next Friday with details available at http://www.tenders.nsw.gov.au
