The State Government has reversed its decision to close Tier 3 rail lines, which transport grain from farms to port.
The lines were due to close at the end of the month but the Transport Minister Troy Buswell now says they will remain open until at least October next year.
Mr Buswell's (The chair sniffer) told the ABC's Country Hour that a decision was made yesterday after meeting the grain handler CBH and Brookfield Rail.
"This extra 12 months gives those two parties the time I hope to work towards a solution," he said.
"A solution which will see Brookfield able to maintain the railway lines in an operational state and it will enable CBH to run their trains run on those lines."
