Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The state member for Lismore, Thomas George, says amendments to the state government's controversial rail-trail bill are a significant win for the north coast community.
The original bill was slammed by pro-rail groups and The Greens, who believed it would be used to allow the sell off of disused rail lines.
The amended version is expected to go before the state parliament later this week.
Although the Greens still aren't convinced of its merits, National Party MP Thomas George says it will ease the threat to the Casino-to-Murwillumbah rail corridor.
He says the promise of a 15-year gap between the last train running and a possible sale means the local line is theoretically safe for another decade.
