BEREJIKLIAN MUST EXPLAIN WALL SLIP – WHY DID GOVERNMENT FAIL TO ACT ON DECEMBER WARNING?
Gladys Berejiklian needs to explain why the O’Farrell Government failed to act on warnings about the safety of the retaining wall at Harris Park Station – and whether cuts to the RailCorp maintenance and capital budget were to blame.
Earlier this week, the wall at Harris Park collapsed onto the platform and tracks after several days of heavy rain – inconveniencing train commuters but miraculously sparing any injuries.
“Minister Berejiklian must come forward and explain exactly what RailCorp knew about problems with the wall at Harris Park,” Shadow Transport Minister Penny Sharpe said today.
