Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The track is finally clear for the establishment of the first rail trails in NSW, after the change of a law enacted in 1880.
Although commonplace in the rest of Australia, NSW has established no rail trails on former state lines because of its unique legislation, designed to protect the rail network.
All that is about to change.
In June, permission was given to establish a trail for cyclists and walkers between Rosewood and Tumbarumba, a 22-kilometre section of disused line between Canberra and Albury.
John Moore, chairman from Rail Trails for NSW, said there were 13 rail trail projects planned across the state, and he expected further bills to be passed down the track.
