According to the Examiner Newspaper both major parties have committed to extending the $1.47million federal government grant for the North East Rail Trail.
The grant which was set aside for the recreational walking and cycle path is due to expire in March 2020 and the North East Recreation Trail Committee was concerned that the promised money would be lost if the work had not begun by then.
A Legislative Council inquiry is looking at recommendations for the future of the disused North-East Rail corridor, following a competing proposal for a heritage train line.
