Property Council welcomes Newcastle light rail movement

The Property Council has welcomed signs that the government is moving ahead with its light rail service in Newcastle.

After only a few weeks it seems that the government is moving ahead with its plans to deliver light rail for Newcastle.

This could help to bring further economic investment into the city centre, attracting more jobs and a larger labour force.

The Property Council has welcomed the recent appointment of a project director and the release of two tenders after the government announced in June it would be revitalising the central business district by cutting the heavy rail line and switching to a light rail.

Speaking to ABC News, Andrew Fletcher from the organisation said that appointing staff to explore location options was an important step in the right direction.

He explained to the publication: "It's really encouraging to see the government has got cracking. They have got on with the job today announcing the appointment of a project director and the issuing of two important tenders."
