Don't write off **/*** just yet. The rail review will find against the case for rail, they can hardly do otherwise, but the review has your then go to the minister for consideration before being published.
No review ever gets into the public domain in the same format as it left the consultant's desk, it is always tweaked for political nuance, and this one will be no different.
The report will go to Ross, if he's still minister, and will.tgen be worked on so as to appease the **/*** lobby. Expect the addition of a vague paragraph about future changes in demographic ladiladila, just enough to avoid coming down absolutely against rail in the next few decades.
That's all they need to stop the greenway, they don't need facts, just vague nonsense about freight' or 'industry' that will.be enough to maintain continued stagnation, giving hope to the realists as well as the rail buffs, and not upsetting landowners who want to absorb the route into their holdings.
