Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
New South Wales Transport Minister John Watkins says most safety recommendations made after the Waterfall train crash have now been implemented.
Mr Watkins says the quarterly updates on the progress of the implementation of the recommendations is part of a promise made to victims' families after the Waterfall train derailment on the NSW south coast in 2003.
He says the safety commitments have led to major changes in the industry.
"They've changed the culture of RailCorp. Safety is now the highest priority, it should have always been the case, but certainly Waterfall, and the McInerney recommendations made very clear that safety had to be the highest priority," he said.
Seven people were killed when a Tangara train derailed near Waterfall station in January 2003.
