Survey says region losing $113 million per year

THE region’s four councils will use a study on the North East rail line released yesterday to broker funding within the 2017-18 state and federal budgets.

There were 385,000 less train trips in 2015-16 than could be achieved due to poor services.

During the data period up to one in five trains did not meet timetables and 117 train services were cancelled.
