The long awaited main street up­grade is now fin­ished with traf­fic go­ing in both di­rec­tions. What are your views?

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

Simon Schroeder, Can­non­vale: I think it took way too long to com­plete and with the amount of money spent you would ex­pect the fin­ishes to be a lot bet­ter than what it is but at least it is fin­ished. Vir­gina Ed­monds, Ju­bilee Pocket: For all the time and money spent on the main street I can't see much of a dif­fer­ence. I think it is a pos­i­tive thing to see the street op­er­at­ing in both di­rec­tions. Matt Vick­ers, Man­dalay: It looks al­right but it took a long time to com­plete. I'm more cencerned about the im­pact it has had on busi­ness. I don't know how many went broke along the way. It's an im­prove­ment any­way. Cait­lyn Kil­lick, Air­lie Beach: It looks great and it seems re­ally busy in the main street which is promis­ing. I think the up­grade has cre­ated a lot of hype. The only down­side is all the cars parked ev­ery­where. Sean O'Regan, Air­lie Beach: It's a se­ri­ous im­prove­ment on what we had pre­vi­ously and the look­out from Air­lie Cres­cent is beau­ti­ful. It will be in­ter­est­ing to see how the street evolves as the plants grow. Mel Pringle, Air­lie Beach: I think it looks re­ally clean and the landscaping is re­ally at­trac­tive. I think it is a con­cern how nar­row the street is with two-way park­ing but I'm sure it meets reg­u­la­tions. Simon Par­sons, Abell Point: I think it looks great but it's sad that tourism has dropped off so much. Vis­ually it looks great and I think the land­scape ar­chi­tects have done a great job at bring­ing it to­gether.
