Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The article published in Echonetdaily ‘TOOT still fighting to save the rails’ about the ongoing efforts of a small dedicated band of people who are still working towards reinstating our railway, was fantastic.
Unfortunately their artistic banner showing a train at a new station at Tyagarah was only up at Santos for a day so I didn’t see it. Perhaps it can be hung again?
These folk have a vision for the future, a workable and affordable plan that has been accurately costed.
Of course a rail and a walking/bicycle track can co-exist, we all want the same thing – to be able to move around the area in a sustainable, enjoyable way without always having to drive.
I know that ongoing discussions have taken place; and that now would be a good time to hop on the infrastructure bandwagon.
Think of the employment possibilities for locals, and improved travel options for locals and tourists with a sustainable rail link between our wonderful small towns and the big festivals.
I can imagine a train between (initially) Mullumbimby, via a station at Tyagarah to Byron and onwards to Bangalow, and then in the future connecting Lismore to Murwillumbah.
How good would that be for us all?
