GET­TING RAIL GO­ING

South Waikato News - - Your Local News - Graeme Pearce

I would like to re­spond to the let­ter to the edi­tor submitted by Isaac Broome [South Waikato Times, Novem­ber 1] about his idea of ex­pand­ing the rail net­work in the cen­tral North Is­land for forestry and tourism as fol­lows.

Isaac you would need to sub­mit a full busi­ness plan to the min­is­ter of trans­port in Gov­ern­ment and you would need to con­sult with the fol­low­ing com­pany’s and groups Trans rail Nz,forestry in­dus­try, Log­ging con­trac­tors, Trans­port op­er­a­tors ,lo­cal Iwi, lo­cal coun­cils.

You would also have to do a full fea­si­bil­ity re­port and cost­ings to sup­port your idea.

If you need any help in do­ing this I am more than will­ing to help you. Rail is the way to go. Great for the forestry, to re­duce the trucks and freight.

Tourists and gen­eral pub­lic could use this to be a great ad­van­tage for the older peo­ple to travel. Good for out of town hos­pi­tal trips.

I fully sup­port this idea and come on, we need this.
