OPINION: Those councillors who think making Tay St and Dee St one lane will solve the inner city problems are living with their heads in the clouds.
Let's go from having NZ's widest main streets to just having empty spaces? I have no idea why we can't close off Esk Street and make it a walkers' boulevard.
We lose maybe 30 car parks, but so what? There are car park buildings at either end and, once and for all, pedestrians will have a small space in the city centre.
To ask only a few retailers their opinion is being disingenuous to everyone else who uses Esk St.
Maybe we can have a vibrant city centre where the people of Invercargill will want to come.
