Today I spoke to Phil Cassell, an independent advocate, about the Wangetti Trail fiasco. Listen below to our discussion. 

The State Government has overlooked the internationally acclaimed Cairns company World Trail and handed the Wangetti Trail contract to a Brisbane based firm. The decision has been absolutely heartbreaking and needs to be appealed. World Trail has proved themselves time and time again. Glen Jacobs the director of World Trail is the first and only Australian to be inducted into the MTB Hall of Fame. The company has designed, planned, and constructed hundreds of projects in 20 countries. So why doesn't the State Government find them worthy?
