Dancers take over after dark

It must rank among the best things the Alice Desert Festival has put on in its 13 years, for its key idea of enlivening our central public spaces after dark, erasing their normally anxious, shuttered and desolate state with sensual exuberance, open-hearted humour and welcome. The event was Dance Jam After Dark. It began at the entrance to the Fan Arcade where at the start of the 7pm performance last night a crowd of 50 or so spectators gathered round. By the end they'd been joined by hundreds.

Back to the drawing board on pedestrian crossings in Alice CBD

 

Council will not be proceeding with wombat crossings between the Post Office, Yeperenye and Coles – nor any new crossings at all – pending further consideration of past reports and a new traffic study in the CBD. The issue had been discussed at length by the previous council, with the wombat crossings finally agreed to. At last night's meeting the Technical Services department was seeking council's permission to proceed. KIERAN FINNANE reports. 

 

Above: Probably the CBD's busiest crossing, on Hartley Street in front of the Yeperenye shopping centre.
