Let our big ships come in

Sev­eral op­tions to up­grade Cun­ning­ham Pier are be­ing con­sid­ered, as the Gee­long coun­cil pur­sues rapid growth in the cruise ship mar­ket.

Geelong Advertiser - - YOUR SAY -

It’s taken them how long to fig­ure out that it would be good for Gee­long? Been miss­ing out for years. Bek Walsh

So let me guess . . . tax­pay­ers to pay to bring Costa’s pri­vately owned pier to stan­dard. Mark Brian

And cue the Gree­nies. Marty Job

Good, they have been talk­ing long enough about up­grad­ing Cun­ning- ham Pier so more cruise lines will visit Gee­long. Margaret Wright

What’s wrong with run­ning ten­ders from ship to shore the way they do in most coun­tries. Veron­ica Roper

Very good idea. To­nia Kichakova

Busi­ness mu­si­cians. Barry Tip­pett op­por­tu­nity

Been say­ing this for years my­self. Peter Harris

Ever thought of sit­u­at­ing a cruise ter­mi­nal at the old Al­coa plant. Ready-made for ships, near the CBD and cry­ing out for a re­fit. Julie Humphreys

I was go­ing to say the same thing. Per­fect lo­ca­tion. Abbey Sher­well

Must be a bas­tard to ad­mit Dar­ryn Lyons was right. Jeff Paull

Fan­tas­tic idea, I re­mem­ber some­one try­ing to push for this a while ago. Ge­orge G Camorra

That’s what Dar­ryn Lyons wanted to do and you all shut it down but I guess as it’s the new coun­cil’s idea it’s a good one. Steve Kerr

Ex­cel­lent idea, and also look at re­build of Yarra St pier for the same pur­pose. Dean Camp­bell

I like how they love the Christ­mas tree as well but no credit given to Dar­ryn once again. Robyn Anne Macleod

Yes, this should have been done years ago. Christo­pher John Slevin
