Stop the pain - it's time to bring back the train

NOW the election is over its time for The Greens, to get the train back on track.

With the Pacific Highway almost finished from Byron bay to Ballina, it's time to think of getting the trains back on track, with the rail line extended to the Gold Coast airport.

With so many tourists on the roads and so little public transport, the train would ease pressure on the ever burgeoning Byron Bay and the Northern Rivers region.

Trains must be used in our overall transport strategy, for goods and services, plus transport for youth the elderly, and everyone.

This is a much needed and overdue project that will help the Northern Rivers, and south east Queensland for decades.
