T06-255 Lilydale 2014 cropNorthern Tasmania Development has completed a demand and economic benefit assessment for the proposed rail trail between Launceston and Billycock Hill, near Ledgerwood.

The report concludes that after five years (post-construction), the Rail Trail will create $6.8million per annum of economic impact in the region with the creation of 40 new jobs. This benefit grows to $11.2 million per annum after 15 years.

This project will provide a significant enhancement to the already funded network of mountain bike trails, making the northern region a truly competitive tourism and cycling destination.

The full report can be viewed on the Northern Tasmania Development website.
