Future of Traveston in limbo

GYMPIE Regional Council will try to sort out the future of Traveston, a town which while relishing its quiet lifestyle, probably includes many young people who would not mind having a public transport link to the outside world.

Council considered the concerns of Gympie man Brian O’Connor at yesterday’s inaugural meeting at council’s new board room, at the old Gympie City Council chambers, near the Five Ways intersection.

Mr O’Connor said council had failed to encourage, through its planning process, the population growth needed to justify continuation of the town’s rail link.

“Traveston has all the potential to become a vibrant railway town similar to lifestyle communities such as Cooran and Eumundi,” he wrote.

He called for a new Traveston, with a “superior lifestyle” in a rural setting.”

His concerns followed planned safety improvements to stations other than Traveston.
