Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
New South Wales Minister for Transport, David Campbell, has announced the reopening of the Moree to Weemelah rail line.
The 20 kilometre branch line was closed last month after engineers determined it was unsafe.
Grain farmers and the Moree Plains Shire Council criticised the move, claiming it would throw into disarray the region's multi-billion dollar wheat market and lead to an increase in heavy vehicles on local roads.
The recommissioning has come at a cost, though, with the Government imposing a new surcharge of $1 per tonne for ongoing track maintenance.
Mr Campbell says the decision has been reversed because it is the right thing to do and is an equitable outcome for all concerned.
