HIGH HOPES: The light rail extension, diversification of the Port of Newcastle, Broadmeadow's Hunter Park and support for GP Access made the council's list of projects for federal funding.

The Newcastle Airport terminal expansion, Hunter Park and an expansion of the Newcastle light rail are all on the wishlist Newcastle council will submit to the federal government for funding.
