Our team took a closer look at the figures provided and summarized some of the key findings in this blog. Click on the title to read.
The Design team at Wolters are excited to see Wulkuraka rail trail head being realised. Totalling 161km in length, the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail (BVRT) is Currently Australia’s longest rail trail, spanning from Wulkuraka to Yarraman. Working to connect communities that are fragmented by redundant infrastructure can be a challenging task that requires a high degree of creativity and innovation . The goal here was to turn these locked parcels of land into a usable and desirable community open space – providing an active pedestrian transport network between the city and rural areas, while acknowledging the historical role of the rail line.
