Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A federal report into grain rail freight in New South Wales has recommended most lines remain open.
The first of 18 recommendations is that conditions on nine rail freight lines be stabilised at a level that meets the minimum requirements of industry.
That includes the North Star to Moree, Walgett to Burren Junction and Merrywinebourne to Narrabri lines.
The report says the State Government should pick up the tab for the upgrades but advises reviewing access charges along those nine lines when the work is finished.
The type of co-funding agreement reached to keep the Weemelah Line open is suggested for the Boree Creek to The Rock and the Cowra to Demondrille lines, but if an agreement cannot be reached the advice is that those lines should close.
The report also advises identifying and developing a network of roads for grain transport.
