The people of the Hunter do not want their rail line removed, cutting off the City of Newcastle from the National Rail Network. Respectfully Mr Baird leave our rail line as it is.

Mr Baird talks about Community Consultation and so we need to tell him in no uncertain terms as a community we don't want this. The importance of this Rail link for so many people can not be overstated especially the elderly and handicapable. The removal will only bring more cars into the city where there is insufficient parking already. You are spending billions of money on Rail, Roads and Tunnels across Sydney trying to improve transport for this overcrowded city. Newcastle deserves better and we want a better plan than your current one. From the comments of the people who feel strongly enough to sign this petition the main theme is we use this service and really can't believe changing it in any way makes it better.
