Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Homes and businesses in Oran Park, Harrington Park and Harrington Grove and Narellan stand in the path of a proposed rail corridor released on Sunday.
The 60-metre wide corridor, an extension of the south west rail link from Leppington to Narellan, proposes to cross through existing and future homes in the three relatively new estates and end up in the Narellan industrial area to the north of Camden Valley Way.
The government is also calling for public comment on the possibility of extending the rail corridor through to the existing Macarthur station, but there is no suggested route at this point.
Harrington Estates managing director Terry Goldacre said land sales in the affected areas had been put on hold until it was confirmed whether the rail line would run underground or on the surface.
‘‘We don’t believe the above ground option is feasible,’’ Mr Goldacre said.
‘‘We support the objective of public transport but it must be done in a way that doesn’t impact residents.’’
Mr Goldacre said the proposed corridor cut through existing homes in Harrington Park as well as subdivided areas of the premium housing estate Harrington Grove where people have started, or were about to start, building homes.
‘‘Given the topography and extent of development south of Oran Park a tunnel is the logical option,’’ he said.
‘‘The government needs to clarify urgently which bits are underground and which bits are on the surface.’’
