For some years now residents, visitors and local business people have been complaining about the amount of rubbish vegetation that has been allowed to grow along the Esplanade between the bike track and the beach here in Hervey Bay
In some places it was almost inpenetrable and a complete eyesore however the new Council has begun a programme to clean up some of the worst spots and work has been done at Torquay and Scarness and the change has been wonderful.
Instead of a forest of woody weeds you can now see the water from places where it was once impossible to see anything and that has got to be a win/win situation for everyone.
Some local businesses along the Esplanade are even reporting that more light is pouring into their shops now that the rubbish has been cleared away.
Let’s hope that this is just the start of an ongoing effort to beautify the Hervey Bay foreshores.
