Mall works: a lesson not in engineering, but public relations?

"They should be working 24/7. They could have finished the job in a third of the time."
It's an understandable reaction by Todd Mall traders who are doing it tough – some of them very much so.
But the manager of yet another refurbishment of the town's main drag says even if it had been decided to incur extra costs for labour, little would have been gained in terms of an earlier finish from working around the clock: constraints of keeping down construction noise at night in the vicinity of three tourist accommodation houses, preferred trading times of certain shops, the weather and trouble with documentation of existing underground services left little slack.

Mall traders like the idea of an events coordinator

Having an events and promotions coordinator for the CBD is supported by 23 out 25 Todd Mall businesses surveyed by the Town Council. Fifteen of those businesses said they would sit on a reference group to provide input. Ten would be prepared to pay a levy to support the position, while another four said "maybe". KIERAN FINNANE reports.
