The NSW Government remains committed to building its inter-city rail fleet maintenance facility at Kangy Angy, according to Mr Scot MacDonald, Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast.
“The Kangy Angy Rail Maintenance Facility is a key part of the New Intercity Fleet,” Mr MacDonald said.
“Up to 300 people would be working during the construction phase.
“Approximately 200 ongoing jobs would be required in the operational phase.
“Through employment and a range of services supplied for fleet maintenance, there will be a material contribution to the Central Coast economy.”
The Federal Environment Department’s assessment of the project under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation (EPBC) Act said the project could only proceed with strict environmental restrictions in place.
In particular, the Federal Minister has required a Ground Water Management Plan, bio-banking and adherence to NSW Department of Environment and Heritage regulations.
