Temporary halt to proposed Kangy Angy train maintenance facility

Sep 14, 2016News
The Federal Government will review the proposed $300 million train maintenance facility at Kangy Angy due to concerns about the impact on two critically endangered birds, the regent honeyeater and swift parrot. 

The facility is proposed to service the new intercity train fleet and operate 24/7, but its location has been opposed by Kangy Angy residents. This announcement will trigger further public consultation and require Transport for NSW to provide documents showing how the impact on the threatened species will be minimised.
