The bid from the Fyshwick Business Association to have the Kingston railway station relocated to its own back yard ("Calls for capital train station move to Fyshwick", November 5) is understandable, but to my mind would be a retrograde step.
If NSW Trainlink were serious about increasing patronage of its service to and from Canberra, it would seek to have the railway station moved closer to the city centre, not farther away.

If Trainlink were really serious, it would be strenuously lobbying the NSW, federal and ACT governments to replace the present service, which is reminiscent of the late 19th century, with a fast (or very fast) rail service. This could render the present highly emissions-intensive air service redundant.
Moving Canberra's inter-city transport links into the 21st century is long overdue.
