The Newcastle Herald's Great Cover Up campaign calls for the region’s coal wagons to be covered to reduce the effect of dust pollution on Hunter communities.
The campaign is in response to community concerns regarding the impacts of coal dust emissions.
The level of particulate matter generated by Hunter coal trains is presently under investigation.
International studies have confirmed coal dust can potentially harm human health.
