FOR the first time in more than two decades, train travellers and visitors will be welcomed to Moree with a familiar smile as the station becomes staffed again from next week.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall and Regional Transport and Roads Minister Paul Toole were in Moree yesterday to announce that Moree local Jemma Craigie had been recruited to the NSW TrainLink team as the first Customer Service Attendant at the Moree station since 1998.
“This is wonderful news for Moree locals and visitors using the daily train service,” Mr Marshall said.
“This station is so much more than just a drop-off and pick-up point, it’s a place where people gather to meet or farewell family and friends and its often where visitors develop their first impression of Moree.
“Having Jemma at the station will greatly improve people’s experience at the station.
“Jemma will be able to assist customers on and off the train, welcome tourists and help with bookings in and out of Moree and across the State.
“Aside from helping locals and visitors, we’ve also been able to create a new job for a local – and that really is the best news of all.”
Mr Toole said the decision to restaff Moree Station was part of the Government’s commitment to improve customer service at transport hubs across the state.
“This appointment is a win for both tourism and customer convenience in Moree as the station connects services and surrounding communities to one another,” Mr Toole said.
“I am thrilled to be able to welcome Ms Craigie to Moree station and have no doubt she will do a great job in this role.”
Ms Craigie will be on duty at Moree Station between 7am and 11am, Monday to Friday, and will be available to answer customer queries, record train and coach movements, and deliver information on delays.
