Container hub a ‘must do’ – Newcastle Herald

WE should not forget that while Greg Cameron provides us with further compelling evidence to build a container terminal here, the decision to not have one is tarnished with corruption.

The supporters of the terminal have pointed to the need for diversification in our local economy. With the downturn in the coal industry, this has become an imperative.

If the rents from the world’s busiest coal port along with private investment cannot support building a container terminal and a modest passenger terminal, then our government has reached a critical level of dysfunction.

Any local politician who is considering election in the coming months must put these items on their ‘‘must do’’ list, or otherwise honestly describe themselves part of Team Sydney.
