Lilydale Yarra Glen railtrail consultations / start of construction

Postby antigee » Tue Nov 06, 2018 6:35 pm

this topic just raised its head over in a discussion on gravel routes - anyway if anyone is enthused to attend a consultation here are dates from an update emailed out at the start of this week (link here to get on the email list

https://rideyarraranges.us3.list-manage ... 25a1a9154b ) interesting says construction rather than design/consultation starting in Jan 2019

plain text from update copied below

Wondering what's been happening with the Yarra Valley Trail project?

We're getting ready for stage one from Lilydale to Yarra Glen!

Community information sessions
View the Yarra Valley Trail stage one plans and have your questions answered at one of our community information sessions:

Saturday 10th November, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Lilydale (at the Lilydale Reserve entry on Main Street near the Olinda Creek bridge)

Thursday 15th November, 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Yarra Glen (at McKenzie Reserve)

Saturday 17th November, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Yarra Glen (at the pedestrian lights on Bell Street)


Works starting soon!
Construction for stage one of the Yarra Valley Trail will start at the Lilydale end in early 2019.

This stage will be approximately 12 kilometres long and will run along the rail corridor between Lilydale and Yarra Glen.

I don't get it? What exactly is being "constructed"? Last time I rode out to Warburton the trail seemed fine to me?

This is an extension of the current trail, going from Lilydale to Yarra Glen.

There's actually little detail online that I can find but this seems a good summary (albeit a little dated)
