Additional Trains on Hunter Line

Filed under Hunter Valley, News, Transport ~ by Press on  31 Oct 2019

Two new trains on track for Hunter line.

Hunter commuters will have more choice with two new direct trains from Singleton to Newcastle, seven days a week, starting from January next year.

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole joined with Member for Upper Hunter Michael Johnsen and community advocates to announce the new services at Singleton station today.

We are delivering on our election commitment and we have made sure the trains will hit the tracks from January 5,” Mr Toole said.

These new services will give customers more flexibility, greater choice and better connections when planning trips to health, education and leisure hubs in the likes of Newcastle, Maitland and Sydney.”

Mr Johnsen said the new services would operate under a 12-month trial and urged people to get on board and show their support.

The timing of the new services will deliver a more even spread of trains across the day, which means you can choose to spend just a morning or afternoon at your destination.

This means Singleton locals can head to Newcastle for a day at the beach and return home in the early afternoon, while tourists will have more opportunities to discover what Singleton has to offer with its rolling hills, wineries and heritage walks.”

The two extra services will give customers six return options during weekdays and four on the weekends, bridging the current interval in daytime options along the Hunter Line.
