Traffic flows again through CBD

By NATALIE PEUTnataliep@gladstoneobserver.dyndns.org

TRAFFIC will flow through the Central Business District (CBD) when the road officially reopens at 8.30 this morning. Business owners Michele Archay and Dianne Burns are looking forward to seeing the road open.

Flowers by Dianne owner Dianne Burns said it would be great to see the traffic flowing through the area again.

'My business thrives on its shopfront, that's where my money comes from,' she said.

'It will be great to have people viewing it again.

'This is usually the busiest time of year for my business and I have to put on massive sales to get people through the doors.'

Michele Archay of Cavaliers Menswear said she wanted to thank the public for supporting their businesses during this time.

'We are hoping the public supports us for the next stage of the development,'' she said.

'Although it was an inconvenience, it certainly will be beautiful and well worth the wait once it's done.'

Gladstone City Council's environmental projects officer Sharon Stott said she was excited about the opening of the road tomorrow at 8.30am.

'It has been a long process, but so far it's looking fantastic,' she said.

Sharon said the barriers would start to come down this morning.

'The council has inspected the road, and a certificate of compliance has been issued,'' she said.

'The road will be a shared zone. Drivers will have a speed limit of 10kph and they must give way to all pedestrians.'
