The future of the heavy rail line through Newcastle CBD beyond Wickham station has been an ongoing debate, which seems to have no foreseeable end! We proposed a long weekend event be held where the trains are temporarily terminated at Wickham and at strategic points along the railway, barriers be opened up and temporary boardwalks and hoardings be installed that allow a safe and engaging passage across the railway tracks. At each of these points we propose that a variety of community focussed events to draw people to the area. The idea being that the community get a sense of what it would be like to have light rail.
