UNLEYLIFE 21 It’s exciting times ahead for traders on Goodwood Road as the major arterial undergoes a facelift over the coming months. The revamp will consist of power lines being placed underground and an upgrade to the streetscape. Owner of Trouble and Strife Cafe Clare Lennen welcomes the project and is confident the works will add value to the area. “ We have to keep our eye on the prize, our power supply is being improved, any improvement to the area should be profitable, and the sidewalk improvement will look more beautiful and more desirable,” she says. To ensure minimal impact, most of the work will be completed at night and very little during trading hours. “ T he most important thing we want people to be aware of is that the roadwork will not stop trading, and there will be accessible pedestrian access” Clare says. The underground works will be from north of the tram line to Victoria Street, Goodwood, and eventually to Mitchell Street, Millswood, and should be completed by April 2016, with the improvements to streetscape to commence following community engagement in May 2016. “As a Goodwood Road trader this is a nerve-racking but extremely exciting time. Great things often come from change, we have such a wonderful community and I’m sure they will show their support by continuing to support their traders,” Clare says.
