Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The Northern Rivers Railway Action Group has called an urgent public meeting for next week after learning there are moves to delist railway bridges in North Lismore from the state’s historical register.
The group claims that John Holland, a Chinese-owned company responsible for maintenance of the Casino to Murwillumbah line is looking at delisting bridges at Terania St and Alexandra Parade in North Lismore so they can remove them.
NRRAG president Beth Shelley said the bridges were built more than a hundred years ago over three years using ‘hard labour and bullock teams to build this line and these bridges’.
The group will be holding a community consultation meeting at the Lismore Workers Club on 19 July from 1pm to 2.30pm to discuss the issue.
‘We would like to see as many people as possible come along to support the heritage status of these bridges,’ she said.
