Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Bathurst Rail Action Group chairman John Hollis has welcomed the announcement that the city's second daily service to Sydney will commence in the spring.
State Member for Bathurst Paul Toole announced last Tuesday that the second Bullet service will be fast-tracked for a spring release after funding was made available in the NSW Budget.
Mr Hollis said the early release of the second Bullet service reflects the urgency of answering a growing demand for regional services to Sydney.
"The new service will provide more options for residents in the region who wish to visit Sydney," he said.
"With the addition of Tarana and Rydal as stops, the new service will be easier for communities east of Bathurst to access."
The second Bullet service is scheduled to leave Bathurst at around 7.30am each weekday and return at 7pm.
Mr Hollis said the new service is a step in the right direction for the continued development of rail operations in the Central West.
"As technology continues to improve, we need to investigate every avenue possible in order to advance the Central West's rail link to Sydney," he said.
