Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Complaints against RailCorp transit officers have fallen by 25 per cent, new NSW government figures show.
The figures also show the number of injuries to transit officers which result in time off work has dropped by 60 per cent.
NSW Transport Minister John Watkins said complaints against transit officers through CityRail's Your Say line dropped to 671 in the 2006-07 financial year, down from 889 on the previous year.
Mr Watkins said transit officers had a difficult and sometimes dangerous job.
"These excellent results have been achieved whilst still maintaining the reduced levels of crime against the person on the network and increasing the apprehension rate of vandals on the network by 122 per cent," he said in a statement.
Mr Watkins said there were 105 incidents in the 2005-06 financial year which caused time away from work for transit officers, which dropped to just 42 in the 2006-07 financial year.
"The drop in transit officer injuries demonstrates that better training and improved supervision is having an effect," he said.
