IT SEEMS the Department of Transport and Main Roads is close to a decision on the future tenure of the rail corridor through the region and what will become of the buildings in each of the towns.
Mr Noel Thompson, from the department, will visit the area on August 14–15 to talk to interested parties and give an indication of the government’s direction.
Whatever the outcome, the groups involved deserve recognition for their ideas and desire to initiate new ways to attract visitors.
The Coalstoun Lakes community gathered on Saturday for its annual Christmas in July.
They enjoyed excellent food and entertainment.
It is great to see a community join together to raise funds to maintain the hall and provide an enjoyable night out.
