Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The New South Wales Government says rail branch lines in the Riverina which have been suspended will remain closed until their maintenance can be financed.
The Federal Government spent $3 million on the NSW Grain Freight Review and is expected to announce its recommendations shortly.
State Transport Minister David Campbell has seen the report and says he is currently working through the detail.
He says the report calls for a greater level of cooperation between grain line operators and customers and recommends operators share the burden of maintaining rail lines.
About 15 lines are no longer in use across the state.
Mr Campbell says some will remain that way unless the money can be found to invest in their safety.
Last week, the State Government announced the Moree to Weemelah line in the state's north-west would reopen but it has imposed a surcharge on users of $1 per tonne.
