Businesses can report bypass blues

BALLINA Chamber of Commerce executive officer Nadia Eliott-Burgess has called on businesses suffering as a result of the new Ballina Bypass to make contact and discuss any problems they are having.

Ms Elliot-Burgess said the Chamber had been working for years to prepare business for the arrival of the bypass, but it was always difficult to connect with all the small businesses in an area.

The bypass was a real opportunity for Ballina.

"It has really opened up parking, it is much better for local traffic," she said.

"However, there is a small number of businesses that have been hit, and they have been hit hard.

"We are trying to get small business to engage," she said.
