5 THINGS TO FIX IN THE WHITSUNDAYS

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

WITH re­pairs un­der way to get the Air­lie Beach la­goon back up and run­ning, we asked our read­ers what else they would like to see fast-tracked to be fixed post-Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Deb­bie.

Board­walk and walk­ing tracks

Pop­u­lar walk­ways in­clud­ing the Bi­cen­ten­nial Walk­way be­tween Sor­rento and Co­ral Sea Re­sort were badly dam­aged dur­ing the cy­clone. How­ever Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil said the board­walk was ex­pected to be fixed by to­mor­row for reg­u­lar users to en­joy again.

Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre

Af­ter be­ing bat­tered by the cy­clone, Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre shut its doors and has been us­ing the Proser­pine RSL to host live shows. Many lo­cals said they would like to see it open its doors to en­joy a film.

Chil­dren’s play­grounds

Play­grounds in­clud­ing Lo­gan’s Ad­ven­ture Play­ground in Can­non­vale were im­pacted when trees came down, shade sails were torn off and grounds were dam­aged as a re­sult of the cy­clone. Res­i­dents said they would love to see the play­grounds safe again for chil­dren to en­joy.

Can­non­vale Li­brary

It’s the per­fect place to grab a book and en­joy some quiet time but Can­non­vale Li­brary has been closed as a re­sult of Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Deb­bie. It is ex­pected to re­open in early June.

Proser­pine Swim­ming Pool

It may be get­ting colder but that doesn’t mean Whit­sun­day res­i­dents don’t en­joy go­ing for a dip. Sig­nif­i­cant dam­age pre­vented wa­ter lovers from us­ing the pool.
