GC CENTRAL CHAMBER BACKS NEW CABLEWAY PLAN

THE Gold Coast Central Chamber of Commerce (GCCCC) has thrown its support behind the $100 million cableway in the Hinterland with President Peter Yared stating more needs to be done to ensure the Gold Coast is abreast of the tourism market.

Yared said it is the beach that usually lures tourists to the Gold Coast however the Hinterland has just as much to offer and the nine kilometre Skyride would give visitors the ultimate Gold Coast experience.

“The Gold Coast might be famous for its sun, surf and sand but there is also so much to see and do in the Hinterland and a Skyride taking in the views of the Gold Coast would be attractive to a range of visitors from overseas-tourists and eco-tourists to day-trippers,” said Mr Yared.

“Unfortunately 16 years ago when the project was first introduced, it was scrapped due to vocal public opposition however the Chamber will work with corporates to avoid the pitfalls of the previously proposed project.

“The Chamber believes it will be a real tourism and money driver and fully supports the Gold Coast Skyrail consortium, Ray Stevens MP and those corporates working to ensure this project gets up.”

Gold Coast business identities Terry Jackman, Terry Morris, Bruce Mathieson and John Hembrow are behind the renewed push for the Skyride.

Yared also said the Chamber is a strong supporter of job creation and with the initiative expected to deliver 600 jobs in construction and 280 jobs once it is operating, members of the GCCCC are really hoping this initiative comes to fruition.

The cableway will stretch from Neranwood to Springbrook and travel along the Hinze Dam.

The Gold Coast Central Chamber of Commerce aims to facilitate networking opportunities for local business owners, develop initiatives to benefit the community and advocates for fair business practices.

The GCCCC regions comprise Burleigh Heads, Robina, Varsity Lakes, Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise and Nerang and its members are made up of rapidly growing small, medium and large businesses.
