Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The commitment came on the first of a two-day Border visit by Ms Berejiklian.
She later inspected the Ettamogah Rail Hub and revealed the freight terminal’s plan for a longer siding was on the shortlist for government funding.
The freight hub plan involves the siding at Ettamogah being extended to allow trains to be fully off the Sydney to Melbourne line instead of partially as they are currently.
More than five kilometres of siding would be built to service trains 2½ to 3-kilometre long which are expected on the planned inland rail route.
Ms Berejiklian said the extension had been shortlisted to share in $300 million of rail funding, with a final decision to be made early next year.
Hub chief operating officer Cameron Jackson said business had grown from moving 2000 containers in 2007 to 20,000 this year.
Member for Albury Greg Aplin said if the siding won funding it would boost the case for NSW contributing to expanding the Davey Road exit off the Hume Highway.
