Project Description

The Macedon Ranges Shire Council was seeking to develop enjoyable, user focussed and safe walking and cycling opportunities for the Shire. This included a rail trail from Daylesford (Tylden) to Woodend and from the Old Carlsruhe Station to Kyneton, linking to a shared use trail to Hanging Rock.
TRC was engaged to provide detailed feasibility studies and costed concept plans for various opportunities for shared on and off-road cycling and walking trails. Components needed to be ‘project ready’ and meet the criteria for State and/or Federal Government funding.
The Draft Trail Feasibility Study was the first of two studies. The next linked study explored and made recommendations for the best options for shared use trails between Woodend and Macedon and through to New Gisborne and Riddells Creek.
