Stores grateful for their upgrade
IT’S been a long time coming, but finally it looks like the Childers Streetscape Project will be completed.
At the moment that end of town is a bit of an eyesore.
Businesses along this section of the CBD have long felt neglected and have repeatedly raised safety concerns due to uneven footpaths.
They have expressed concerns of people constantly tripping over uneven surfaces, and their struggle to attract customers along the “ghost” end of town.
And yet, while these businesses have waited all these years to see their section of the street upgraded, they don’t seem to hold a grudge.
Instead, they are just grateful their end of the town is getting the upgrade it desperately needs.
What a great attitude they have.
Of course, the project wouldn’t have been possible without our community leaders.
In particular, I want to congratulate John Russo for continuously advocating on behalf of the community to ensure the remainder of the main street is revamped.
He has been pushing the issue for a number of years now and has organised meetings with the Minister to make sure the voice of this town is heard.
It’s people like John Russo who keep this town going.
I can’t wait to see the main street when it’s completed.
