The council vote will be in the evening of Monday 26 July.

Dear Wagga Wagga Councillor:

The proposed Wagga Wagga to Ladysmith rail trail needs your support.

Rail Trails have been shown to create jobs, stimulate local economies and provide recreation opportunities which promote social, health and tourism benefits. Wagga Wagga to Ladysmith would provide all these benefits for Wagga Wagga residents as well as making a great link with the successful Tumbarumba rail trail.

The Wagga Wagga to Ladysmith rail trail will drive new tourism opportunities across the Riverina Highlands region, with multi-day cycling experiences taking in all the towns on the route.

I hope you will vote to give your in-principle support to the development of rail trails in the Wagga Wagga LGA at the Council meeting on Monday 26th July.

Yours sincerely,

(your name and location).
