Fresh details of the Federal Government’s high-speed rail corridor proposal have many Hunter landholders fearing about the future and value of their properties.

While the corridor’s exact route is not yet set in stone, documents released today reveal it would run through several planned growth areas across the region, including Dora Creek, West Wallsend and Thornton North.

Lake Macquarie Councillor Barry Johnson says Council’s newly approved submission includes a number of recommendations, to reduce the corridor’s effect on residential land.
