Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
A parliamentary inquiry has been told 40 full time jobs have been axed as a result the closure of the Casino to Murwillumbah train service in northern New South Wales.
The Rail, Tram and Bus Union told the inquiry redeployment is not an option for those who lost their jobs.
The Casino to Murwillumbah train service was axed in April and replaced with buses.
At the time, the Government said the service had low patronage, was costing $5 million a year to run and would need $200 million to upgrade it over the next 20 years.
Union spokesman Nick Lewocki has disputed the figures saying there is no documentation to say where they came from.
Mr Lewocki says there has been a significant fall in the number of people using the coach service compared to the train.
He says the closure announcement came as a shock to the workforce, the union and the community because there had been little consultation.
