Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The New South Wales Opposition Leader says the State Government should be paying for the Pacific Highway upgrade instead of spending billions on a metro rail system for Sydney.
Barry O'Farrell made the comment in Coffs Harbour yesterday.
He says it is obscene that the mid-north coast Pacific Highway upgrade is incomplete and that people continue to die on the road.
"Particularly when the State Government is spending $5 billion on a metro rail system in Sydney that no-one in Sydney wants," he said.
"This is a State Government whose priorities are wrong - the benefit that the Liberal/Nationals bring to the task is that our members are in electorates that are served."
Meanwhile, Mr O'Farrell also says the mid-north coast should be made up of small health districts rather than a large area health service.
He says communities should be able to identify their own health needs and have the resources to fix them.
"The priority with health is to allow local communities like this to have a greater say in the way in which their health services are run," he said.
"Our idea for district health boards would involve not just members from the community but also health professionals who work in the system and them being able to make the decisions, as opposed to decisions being imposed upon them from either north, close to the Queensland border, or from Miller Street in north Sydney."
