Strategic Directions & Implementation Plan
Implementation Plan Presentation! Wednesday 13th September, 2017
Wagga Rail Trail Inc. is pleased to present the Strategic Directions & Implementation plan.
This is the plan that will help bring the trail to life.
It has been developed by consultants, Inspiring Place, after three months of comprehensive research and community consultation.
Precedent established for rail trails in NSW
All of our supporters are invited to attend the official presentation of the Wagga Rail Trail Strategic Directions and Implementation Plan.
Enormous use of trail recorded
The disused rail line between Tumbarumba and Rosewood is set to be developed as the historic first rail trail in NSW.
This is welcome news for the Wagga Rail Trail proposal, as the rail trail concept has now been brought into law in this state, setting a precedent for the future establishment of a network of trails across NSW.
History of the Tumba line
A huge number of people were recently recorded using the riverside walking track near the Visitor Information Centre, confirming that once it is developed, the Wagga Rail Trail will become a major community recreation facility.
Community Forum! Wednesday 7th June, 2017
The original line was a vision to connect isolated and pioneer rural communities of the time. The potential benefits of this line were considered so important and valuable that there was considerable community debate and support for alternative routes before the final route was agreed.
The Implementation Plan Has Begun!
All of our supporters are invited to an open community forum that is being held as part of the community engagement being undertaken for the Wagga Rail Trail Implementation Plan.
The Planning Begins!
The Wagga Rail Trail committee is pleased to announce the official commencement of the Wagga Rail Trail implementation plan. It was our pleasure to welcome Adam Holmstrom and John Hepper of Inspiring Place to Wagga at the end of April, to begin phase one of the implementation plan.
The Wagga Rail Trail Committee is excited to announce a significant project milestone this month. Inspiring Place – a firm of urban planners and landscape architects, has been appointed to undertake the trail Implementation Plan.
The Future for Wagga - Active Transport
The vivid green Superb Parrot is a special bird that nests in protected bushland close to the proposed Wagga Rail Trail route at Governor’s Hill. With less than 5000 breeding pairs left in the wild, it is an extremely vulnerable parrot, classified nationally as a Threatened Species.
Make Your Pledge for the Trail
Four members of the Wagga Rail Trail Committee recently attended a workshop to give feedback on the Wagga Wagga Integrated Transport Strategy (WWITS), which is broad plan for the future direction of transport infrastructure and services for Wagga Wagga for the next 30 years.
Annual General Meeting
It’s time to take a stand and make your pledge to support the Wagga Rail Trail. To bring the trail to life we need a design plan, which costs upward of $60,000.
Wagga Rail Trail Inc. invites all members to attend the Annual General Meeting of the association.
