Rail lines vital

They are an economic link for this State. They are our lines, owned by our Government, and need to be included in adequate rural funding.

Faced with similar problems, the NSW Government has called for registrations of interest from suitably qualified parties to restore, maintain and operate 200 kilometres of rail lines in the central west of NSW on a commercially sustainable basis under a fixed-term licence.

Our WA lines can be treated similarly and must be retained.
