Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
HILLS residents have been promised a rail link for so long even Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian says there will be some people who will only believe it when they see it.
"I know there are some doubting Thomases out there," Ms Berejiklian said.
But seeing is believing - Ms Berejiklian was on hand to see the first major demolition for the rail link on the site of the proposed Norwest railway station.
The building, on the corner of Norwest Boulevard and Brookhollow Ave, will be demolished within weeks. Ms Berejiklian said the station was moved slightly south following community consultation, and the government was open to ideas about how the station should look.
"We're asking residents and businesses to give us feedback and we've demonstrated that we listen to the community," she said.
"We've slightly moved location (of the station) to make sure we don't cause unnecessary disruption to local roads.
"The feedback we've had is, 'Hurry up and build the damn thing'."
Ms Berejiklian said the rail link would take cars off the M2 and ease congestion in the Hills. She promised every effort would be made to minimise the impact on traffic during construction."
