O'FARRELL FAILS TO DELIVER LATE NIGHT TRAINS FROM KINGS CROSS
The O'Farrell Government's failure to introduce late night train services from Kings Cross means thousands of revellers will still be waiting around on the streets every Friday and Saturday night causing trouble.
"While the NSW Opposition welcomes today's announcement, the Premier has missed a key piece in the puzzle to solving the problem of alcohol fuelled violence in Kings Cross," Opposition Leader John Robertson said today.
"This plan fails to include late night train services to move thousands of people out of Kings Cross quickly and safely on Friday and Saturday nights.
"A train could move 1,000 people out of Kings Cross, directly to Town Hall and Central, in under ten minutes.
