Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A section of the NSW government's plan to disentangle Sydney's CityRail network has been removed from the project without notice, the opposition says.
Opposition Leader Barry O'Farrell says documents obtained under Freedom of Information show the Sydenham to Erskineville line has been removed from the Clearways project.
The project was designed to separate the 14 existing CityRail lines.
"At the time, Labor promised 15 projects would be undertaken to detangle the lines, with $190 million earmarked for work on the Sydenham to Erskineville track," Mr O'Farrell said on Thursday.
"Later, the government downgraded the Sydenham project to a mere feasibility study, but now even a study seems to have disappeared off the books."
Mr O'Farrell said the government must now also explain what had happened to the $190 million that was earmarked for the project.
Opposition transport spokeswoman Gladys Berejiklian said the Sydenham to Erskineville project joined a long line of disastrous public transport programs started by the NSW government, including the T-card integrated ticketing system and the outer suburban rail carriages.
