Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Improvements to freight rail services between Newcastle and Sydney are set to increase waiting times for traffic at one of Newcastle's worst rail crossing bottlenecks.
Work on the $1 billion rail upgrade will start in February and will increase the capacity of the line from 29 to 44 freight trains a day.
That will mean even longer waiting times at the Adamstown level crossing, with the rail gates now expected to be closed for another two hours each day.
Charlestown MP Andrew Cornwell says the government will continue pushing for funding for a freight bypass of Newcastle.
"The freight bypass from Fassifern to Hexham is obviously still going to be an important issue," he said.
"In order to improve the situation within the inner city of Newcastle we still need to keep pushing for that link because that will then enable our local network to be freed up even further."
