How do you feel about the Newell Highway reopening?
Sarah Karaitiana: I think it’s fantastic – it’s had a significant affect on local businesses. I hear a lot of people say it’s been so quiet, it’s easy to forget how many people are just stopping on the highway. I’m hoping it will be good news for local businesses, and for the families they support.
Stacey Miller: It’s great news for the town because the Newell really is the life-line for Forbes and it means travellers can access businesses and services in the town.
Beth Betland (Bits and Bubs): It hasn’t personally affected me that much because I don’t tend to travel that direction, but it’s great for the town to have visitors again.
