    Andreas, the land is currently owned by TasRail. There is no technical reason why the area could not be lit, as there are certainly power cables in the vicinity.
    All those interested should come to the next Lutana Link meeting (Sunday 14 September 3.30pm at Goodwood) and ask their questions directly, or keep following for updates.
