Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The Save Our Rail group has been granted a Supreme Court hearing to apply for an injunction to stop the State Government cutting Newcastle's heavy rail line on Boxing Day.
The group's been granted a short service hearing which means their claim will be heard on Tuesday.
An interim parliamentary report released this week found the truncation should not proceed until there is a peer reviewed cost benefit analysis.
The group's Joan Dawson said they are confident heading into next week's hearing.
"We went before the duty judge at the Supreme Court in order to achieve a short service hearing which means instead of waiting until after Christmas we can have a hearing on Tuesday 23rd of December and following that we registered the papers for an application for an injunction to be heard," she said.
Ms Dawson says they are well prepared for the hearing.
"Well I feel very confident that we have a very good case to be here and I am feeling upbeat about the way we've been granted the short service so this can be heard as a matter of urgency," she said.
