The Tasmanian Transport Museum is responsible for the management of the rail corridor between Elwick Rd, Glenorchy and Mentmore St, Chigwell. This includes vegetation control, below and above rail infrastructure and access to 3rd parties to enter the corridor.

Accessing the Corridor

As the lease holder of the Elwick Rd – Mentmore St section of the rail corridor, the Tasmanian Transport Museum (TTMS) is responsible for controlling access for all 3rd parties. This is usually done through a formal Interface Agreement between the TTMS and the 3rd Party. If you require access to the rail corridor to undertake works, please contact us via the form below.  3rd Parties MUST NOT enter the rail corridor without permission from the TTMS.
