Protection of the Main North Railway for use by trains

Petitioner: Mr Matthew Tierney | Member: Cusack, Catherine | No. of Signatories: 1,160 | Date closed: 26/01/2023 | Status: Awaiting Presentation
To the President and Members of the Legislative Council, the petitioners of the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales state that the main railway line from Werris Creek via Tamworth, Armidale, Glen Innes and Tenterfield to Queensland is of such strategic, economic and social value that this asset must be secured for passenger, freight and tourism rail services which are needed for the growth and development of this region. The petitioners request that the House reject any bill to close any part of the Main North Line from Armidale to Wallangarra and that the House maintain ownership of the line by The Transport Asset Holding Entity with full legal protection of this railway under the Transport Administration Act 1988.
