Will the Rail Trail protect the corridor from being sold off?

Yes, the Rail Trail will become a ‘Rail Bank’. By using the rail corridor for a Rail Trail it will remain in public ownership in the hands of the State Government. A change in legislation is required to allow a Rail Trail to use the rail corridor. This will not diminish the protection of the corridor or change the ownership. The legislation will state that the corridor can only be for the use as a rail trail.
