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.
OPINION: 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.
