No tres­pass­ing

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

The State Gov­ern­ment, Syd­ney Trains and NSW TrainLink have urged com­muters to avoid tres­pass­ing on train tracks. Trans­port and In­fra­struc­ture Min­is­ter An­drew Con­stance dis­cour­aged the prac­tice. “Not only is it dan­ger­ous, but tres­pass­ing on the tracks means big fines of up to $5000,” Mr Con­stance said. Syd­ney Trains chief ex­ec­u­tive Howard Collins said: “Ev­ery year around 4000 peo­ple tres­pass on the tracks for a range of rea­sons from tak­ing short­cuts to com­mit­ting graf­fiti van­dal­ism.”
