A potential rail trail linking Bundaberg and Gin Gin has journeyed a little further down the track with the appointment of consultants to undertake a feasibility study and development plan. Sport and Recreation portfolio spokesperson Cr Helen Blackburn said Council has engaged a very experienced consultant in Mike Halliburton Associates and Transplan Pty Ltd to undertake the feasibility study. “The consultants have provided input on over 200 such rail trail projects. “This is an exciting initiative for the Bundaberg Region as rail trails offer huge potential for a multitude of recreational activities from hiking through to bike rides. “The State Government has supplied $92,000 for the study to be undertaken and we envisage it will be completed in early January next year. Council is hopeful of having this phase completed by April next year.
