TRAC Project Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 24 11 2012 17:58
The saga of this Cornwall Council EU funded project to provide a multi-user trail along the old railway line west of Launceston drags on. It should also provide links through to the east and towards Devon. But progress has been slow and disappointingly limited. Whether progress can be achieved before funding deadlines expire is still in doubt.

Launceston to Camel Trail link Submitted by: trina 10 12 2012 15:25
I find it very hard to believe that Cornwall Council is unable to find the necessary funding to complete this project. Most of the work has already been done, by South west Railway over half a cetuary ago. surely if Cornwall Council used their available recources more carefully instead of wasting funds . {Cardinham Bridleway} there would be enough money available to at least open part of the track for riders.

The ultimate aim of this project was to connect Launceston with Wadebridge Camel Trail. But judging by the problems of trying to get the first 4 miles, 2 miles of which will now remain on a narrow road/lane. The goal will never happen, and Cornwall Council currently now has a no new trails policy because it can't afford top look after what it already has! Your views are welcome.
