Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
New South Wales Premier Morris Iemma says a report on cross-border train services between Queensland and the Tweed should be finalised soon.
He says he is aware that petrol prices are high in regional areas and public transport needs to be improved.
Mr Iemma says he will release the findings of the report shortly.
"The Cross Border Task Force has almost finished its work and when it does its report will come to the Cabinet," he said.
"The work is a week or two from being completed and it will then come to Cabinet so it's not far away.
"Then I'll be in a position to release both the report and also what the response will be from Government."
Meanwhile, the Trains on our Tracks (TOOT) group, based out of the northern rivers region, says it is looking forward to seeing the report's recommendations.
But TOOT spokeswoman Karin Kolbe says she does not think the study will look at the issue of a commuter train service for the northern rivers.
"We have actually been waiting for over a year now for this report to come out, but really the substance of the draft report that we saw was that that is looking very much at just getting transport to and over that border," she said.
"It's really doing nothing to address the transport needs of the people in the northern rivers."
