Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
THE Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre has been deemed unviable after an agreement was signed to develop the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal yesterday.
The Federal Government announced the agreement will see Sydney Intermodal Terminal Alliance develop and operate the intermodal by 2017.
Powerhouse director Kiersten Fishburn said there are real concerns about the impact the intermodal freight terminal will have on the centre.
She said the centre will be greatly compromised.
“Once the intermodal goes in, the operation noise and freight trains will severely impact on the amenity,” Ms Fishburn said.
“Anyone who has been there knows what a beautiful environment it is, adding to the pleasure of enjoying the theatre or gallery space.
“The whole point of an art environment is it gives you space to think and reflect ... It doesn’t take a genius to figure out you don’t want to stand in a gallery looking at a piece of art with constant noise.”
She said plans for the intermodal show an overall lack of appreciation of the needs of south-western Sydney for arts and culture, open space and ease of transport.
Liverpool Mayor Ned Mannoun said the Powerhouse will become “unviable”.
