ASIO tells us that Australia’s terror alert should be raised from medium to high, indicating an attack is likely rather than possible.
But our NSW Minister for Transport is racing to destroy the core public transport system of a highly strategic Australian city before anyone else can try.
Has she noticed that alongside the Newcastle rail terminus by the harbour is a smoothly functioning transport interchange, its cross-harbour ferry linking to airport and shipping?
There are interchanges at Civic and Wickham as well.
She is being pushed to remove all three for no valid reason. Don’t go off the brink, Minister. Not a good idea.
