Newcastle rail line protest in Maitland

Maitland Protest

The RTBU Tram and Bus Division joined members and concerned residents in Maitland last week to call on the NSW Premier to reverse the State Government’s ridiculous decision to rip up valuable rail infrastructure that delivers passengers directly into the Newcastle CBD.

Regional communities across Australia are crying out for the kind of rail infrastructure Newcastle is lucky enough to have and yet this Government is removing it and forcing passengers on to secondary transport modes.

The decision should be reversed and consultation undertaken with the community in a transparent way – out from under the cloud of the Liberal Party election donations scandal currently before ICAC.
