DEPUTY Mayor Bob Kirk is furious the region has missed out on funding for a rail trail project.

The joint Goulburn Mulwaree and Upper Lachlan Shire plan won plaudits when a funding submission was handed to government in November.

But high hopes of success were dashed last week. State regional tourism minister John Barilaro announced $50 million for two rail trail pilot projects - the disused Casino to Murwillumbah in the Northern Rivers and the Rosewood to Tumbarumba rail corridors.

Have him put up his own cash.  This rail trail would not be a priority.  Crookwell is a long branch.  Would require a lot of work.
