The decision was made at council's December meeting.
The Lachlan Regional Transport Committee was formed at Gooloogong on July 9, 1983 after the then NSW Government had announced that all branch line country passenger trains would cease at the end of 1983 and be replaced by road coaches.
Local councils at the time held a public meeting at Gooloogong and the regional transport committee was formed, taking in road, rail and air.
OTHER RECENT COUNCIL NEWS:
The transport committee now consists of 14 local government councils, one of which is Oberon, plus individual members.
The organisation says it has submitted many submissions to government departments and politicians, some of which have been acted upon.
The current membership to be on the committee is $300, however, no Oberon Council representative sits as a delegate on the committee and Oberon Council does not actively attend meetings.
Oberon Council, through its association with the Central NSW Joint Organisation of Councils, advocates for similar projects.
