Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
SIX months ago, Crawfords Freightlines approached Liverpool Plains Shire Council about building an intermodal hub at Werris Creek - and in just over a month, the first trains will roll out of the new $8-million facility.
The development was planned, designed and built so quickly, it's impressed everyone involved.
"I'm blow away by what I see here today," Liverpool Plains mayor Andrew Hope said, as he inspected the site on Thursday.
"It was only about six months ago Crawfords approached us with the idea. I welcome the day the first train rolls out of here."
Crawfords Frieghtlines owner Peter Crawford said timber from Nundle State Forest would make up the hub's baseload traffic, and he's already begun negotiations with a number of grain companies.
"It's here for a long time, it's not a flash in the pan," he said.
