Re: News & Discussion: Regional Rail Transport & Infrastructure

Very much so.

Dan Pellekaan, despite his help in obtaining FOI requests for us, hasn't commented publicly. Kendall Jackson hasn't been receptive but she did say that as part of "Recharge Our Regions", Rail would be considered if it needed to be.

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Rail Transport & Infrastructure

Heard zip from Brock on the matter, and I've put it to our Political and Campaign manager to see if he can touch base with him again.

Brock has been pushing hard for Port Wakefield Rd.

Re: News & Discussion: Regional Rail Transport & Infrastructure

We're advocating for freight and to a lesser extent passengers. I understand where your coming from don't worry - obviously GWA have decided that they have no personal use for the lines other than hanging onto them but that shouldn't preclude another operator wanting to use them if they wanted to.
