First im­pres­sions

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

I THOUGHT the starfish round­about at the top of Air­lie was pretty bland, but the coun­cil has ex­ceeded them­selves by now con­cret­ing it.

They have missed an op­por­tu­nity of re­ally giv­ing a good trop­i­cal feel as mo­torists de­cend into the main street of Air­lie.

The amount of money spent on the main street makes the ap­proach look pretty dis­mal.

This con­crete round­about in time will look like the con­crete strip at the traf­fic lights at Shute Har­bour Road and Is­land Drive, dis­coloured and black from dirt and traf­fic fumes and never cleaned.

The per­son who came up with the idea to con­crete the round­about should be car­ry­ing out their ideas in a prison com­pound.

Ac­tu­ally you would find far more pleas­ing out­door wel­com­ing fea­tures in a prison. Alan Bev­er­stock Air­lie Beach
