Hobart's skyline: looking better already

Myer facade Hob

An unwelcome feature on Hobart's skyline has been removed.

The crane that was holding up the Myer redevelopment site - and blocking Murray Street - is gone and one lane of the vital thoroughfare has been re-opened to traffic.

Council's three-free-hour parking offer in its highrise carparks ends on Sunday.

A 'Super Saturday' sidewalk sale for the city's shops will give retail a 'shot in the arm' on August 27th.

Myer expects to re-open its flood-damaged Liverpool Street outlet in stages, starting with the first and second floors towards the end of this month. No date has yet been determined for the resumption of trade in the store's basement.
