Support from Politicians

Bangalow Update

The Byron Shire Council  have funds for a cycleway in Bangalow. The Bangalow Chamber of Commerce want to see this happen and are getting right behind it with their support. We believe the best place for this would be along the existing rail corridor. We will be supporting the Chamber of Commerce in this exciting opportunity.  Please take the time to fill out the survey below.

Tweed Shire Council Update

Council  are  progressing their Business Case for the section from Murwillumbah to Crabbes Creek for submission  to the State Government by February 2016.

Congratulations to the Tweed Council Team who have been working tirelessly throughout the year on this project and to the community for their overwhelming support.

For further information visit the NRRT Inc website at http://www.northernriversrailtrail.org.au/

Once we have the Tweed section started, the completion of the whole trail from Casino to Murwillumbah will be only a matter of time.

Please continue to support the rail trail by donating (at the bottom of this email). The NRRT association is a voluntary organisation. 

The Tweed Stage will be fantastic!

Lets hope NSW gets on board with rail trails before next Christmas!
