Our roads are so bad. There's too many trucks and too many road accidents. Traffic congestion is growing fast as tourists pour into our region and our population is constantly increasing. Carbon emissions from transport are growing and are currently 18% of our emissions. Trains could cut that by 60%. We need to let State and Federal governments know we want trains on the Casino to Murwillumbah track as soon as possible.
The last thing we need right now is to lose our railway track and rail trail legislation in any section of the line would mean losing the current protection of the whole rail corridor.
Tumbarumba rail land has now become crown lands following the recent rail trail legislation and the State government can do what they like with it.
The North Coast of NSW has a high proportion of elderly, people on benefits, indigenous people and students. Many are unable to drive or afford a car. The lack of public transport causes suffering to the most vulnerable groups in our community.
We need rail services on the Casino to Murwillumbah rail line because of the urgent issue of climate change. Mass transport and rail are the most efficient and safe means of travel. The disastrous effects of climate change can be seen in the March 2017 flood in Lismore.
All across the world nations are turning to rail as the most equitable and sustainable mode of transport.
