South Burnett rail trail link to go ahead

A LINK between the Kilkivan to Kingaroy Rail Trail and the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail has been confirmed.

South Burnett Regional Council decided to endorse the project run by the Heritage Nanango Community Fund Board during their council meeting on Wednesday December 12.

Mayor Keith Campbell said it would be a signed cycling route between the two rail trails.

The council were approached by the Heritage Nanango Community Fund Board who had mapped out a proposed route for the project.

"Heritage Nanango Community Fund Board members met with Council representatives to outline the proposal,” he said.

Councillor Ros Heit said she was fully supportive of this project.

"The rail trail has been a great success story for our region,” she said.

Maranoa member David Littleproud and Nanango member Deb Frecklington both provided letters of support for the project.

The council agreed to assist with putting up signs for the proposed rail trail link, which would be funded by the Heritage Nanango Community Fund board.

The name of the rail trail link will be determined at a later date.
