It was good to read David Lisle’s comprehensive and reasoned discussion of the history of the Casino to Murwillumbah rail corridor. He highlighted the widespread economic development (jobs) that a rail trail would bring and its use as a green transport alternative.
I support his analysis that Byron Council runs the risk of ridicule as it spends our sparse ratepayer funds on yet further useless studies to try to justify a rail service. How odd will it seem when the walking/cycling trail goes from Casino to Bangalow and Murwillumbah to Billinudgel, and people in Byron Bay need to drive their car to access the trail? I hope this is the start of more sensible discussions about the best use of the rail corridor.
