Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The Property Council says it appears the State Government is moving ahead with plans to deliver light rail for Newcastle with the appointment of a project director and the release of two tenders.
The Government announced in the June budget that $340 million would be spent revitalising the Newcastle CBD including cutting the heavy rail line and installing light rail.
The Government says the first tender covers activity to explore options for where the light rail should travel.
The Property Council's Andrew Fletcher says it is an important step forward.
"It's only a little over six weeks since the budget announcement of 340 million dollars for a light rail system for Newcastle's CBD and it's really encouraging to see the Government has got cracking," he said.
"They have got on with the job today announcing the appointment of a project director and the issuing of two important tenders."
