GAYN­DAH Her­itage Rail­way Rail Trail is on track to de­liver its business pro­posal to take over un­used rail­way as­sets.

After sub­mit­ting an Ex­pres­sion of In­ter­est to Queens­land Rail, the group was in­vited by Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney to de­velop its pro­posal to run a 16km tourist rail­way be­tween Reid’s Creek and Mount Law­less.

Sec­re­tary Ja­son Cooper said the pro­posal would boost tourism in the North Bur­nett.

“Gayn­dah Her­itage Rail­way Rail Trail (GHRRT) are well ad­vanced in de­vel­op­ing the business plan,” Mr Cooper said.

“I am cur­rently work­ing closely with our ap­pointed au­di­tor, Paul Teefy from the Gold Coast, in de­vel­op­ing a sus­tain­able fi­nan­cial plan for the suc­cess of our pro­posed tourist attractions.

“In­surance is piv­otal for the suc­cess of our pro­posed tourist attractions.

“GHRRT have ad­dressed the pub­lic li­a­bil­ity in­surance cover and other com­po­nents of in­surance cover re­quired for the suc­cess of our pro­posed tourist attractions.”

The group’s board will re­view the business plan be­fore it is de­liv­ered to Mr Seeney in the next two weeks, he said.
