Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
The New South Wales Government says it has no plans to pay for an overhaul of the rail system by selling off state forests.
A Sydney newspaper claims Transport Minister Michael Costa has persuaded his cabinet colleagues to sell 230,000 hectares of forest to fund a $1 billion revamp of the rail network.
A statement from Treasurer Michael Egan's office says no decision has been made on the future of state forests.
Mr Costa says the report is nonsense.
"The two issues are completely separate," he said.
"The Government made a decision at the time of the mini-budget to invest $2.5 billion into the rail system. That will be funded through RailCorp borrowings."
