Rail diversion; Burnside on board
After the recent horrific crash at the corner of the free-way and Cross Rd the Mayor of Burnside, David Parkin, has called for another look at rail freight diversion. The more freight on trains the less there should be on roads. The rail freight diversion committee will discuss this at Thursday's meeting. So far Councils involved in this committee have only been represented from those that the train passes through. The committee is seeking a meeting with Geoff Brock in the hope that he may be able to help get the studies required completed to clearly demonstrate that there is a strong economic benefit in moving the line and not just an amenity benefit.
