Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
WOLLONDILLY, Wingecarribee, Wollongong, Shellharbour and Goulburn Mulwarree councils have forged an alliance to support the completion of the Maldon Dombarton rail link.
Wollondilly Mayor Col Mitchell and general manager Les McMahon met members of the respective councils recently to discuss the railway line's development, the Macarthur Chroniclereports.
"The meeting agreed to form the Coalition of Council for the Support of the Maldon Dombarton Rail Line," Cr Mitchell said.
The coalition says it will will support the Port Corporation to ensure the Maldon Dombarton rail link is an Infrastructure NSW priority and is taken forward to Infrastructure Australia in 2014.
"By forming a coalition we are a stronger and united force, and I'm sure that by working together we will achieve a more positive outcome for our communities," Cr Mitchell said.
Wollondilly Council hopes the completion of the line will relieve pressure on both Picton and Appin roads, providing an alternative to heavy vehicle movements. The line was partially built by the state government between 1983 and 1988 before it was abandoned because of doubts over its economic value.
If built, the line would be a major transport link between Wollondilly shire and Wollongong for freight.
