More Funding for The Tiger Rail Trail
Posted on 28/02/14
The “Friends of the Tiger Trail” and the wider community are to be congratulated on their tremendous efforts to raise money towards the study. They have raised over $10,000 to date. The State Government has announced that they will give $45,000 and the Colac Otway Shire has donated $5,000 towards the feasibilty study.
A completed Feasibility Study is an integral part of the process of developing the trail. The study will be able to identify how closely the route can follow the original railway formation as well as design, engineering and environmental issues. It is also important to provide an estimate of the potential costs.
Currently 7km of the trail is completed, starting at the Forrest end, and including interpretative signage. The total length will be 30km, and includes Barwon Downs, Deans Marsh and ends at the Birregurra station. It passes through the Yaugher State Forest and undulating farmland. It promises to provide a very pleasant ride/walk.
