Member for Orange, Andrew Gee has voiced his concern over a NSW TrainLink review currently underway, which would see the Parkes Railway Station become unattended. Mr Gee said he would be bringing both his and the community’s concerns to the urgent attention of New South Wales Transport Minister, Andrew Constance. “I was extremely disappointed to learn that NSW TrainLink is currently reviewing a proposal to revert Parkes Railway Station to become an unattended station,” Mr Gee said. “I have made urgent representations to the Minister requesting that the Parkes Station remain manned, however I would encourage any Parkes residents who share
my sentiments to contact my office so these concerns can also be passed on.
Public transport is an issue close to the hearts of people in regional communities and it is vital that we maintain our rail services, especially for those residents who rely on it. I will be sure to keep the community updated on progress on this issue.” If you would like to contact Mr Gee’s office in regards to this article, please call 6362 5199 or if you would like to have your say about the possible unmanning of Parkes Railway Station, send your views as a letter to the editor to email@example.com or post it to our current office at 65 Gaskill Street, Canowindra.
