Was the Grand Prix, promoted as & # 8220 ; The Great Race & # 8221 ; which was

held at Albert Park beneficial for Melbourne, or was it merely

a immense waste of taxpayers money? The race was televised to

650 million people in 130 different states is expected to

pump $ 50 million into the Victorian economic system every twelvemonth and

encouragement touristry tremendously.

I along with the proprietors of 72 per centum of hotels, motels,

eating houses and other amusement composites agree that

Albert Park holding the Grand Prix will hold a positive impact

on concern. Infact it pumped $ 10 & # 8211 ; $ 15 million into local

concern. This will intend these concerns did set on more

portion clip staff who will be deriving valuable work experience

and there will besides be a flow on consequence to providers of these

industries. Fifty-nine per centum of interstate visitants and

40 five per centum of abroad visitants would non hold come

to Adelaide in a two twelvemonth period because of the Grand Prix if

non for the race. By Albert Park acquiring the Grand Prix

created between 1000-1500 new occupations. The Grand Prix will

promote Victoria on an international graduated table with international

imperativeness, telecasting and media caring out a universe broad coverage

of this event. This could convert people to come and see

Melbourne and would besides be a major touristry encouragement.

Approximately $ 23.8 million has been spent passing the

park and upgrading the Lake side path. They built better

fencings and roadblocks to assist protect witnesss in instance of a

clang, and the path is said to be the safest and finest in

the universe, making a benchmark for Albert Park. Temporary

seating will provide for 150,000 people, and at that place was

about an attending of 400,000 over the four yearss.

9,000 parttime occupations and 1,000 full-time occupations were created

over the weekend.


he “greenies” are still seeking to halt the race at Albert

Park. First it was & # 8220 ; Save The Park & # 8221 ; and now it s & # 8220 ; Stop The

Grand Prix. & # 8221 ; At first they protested about the cutting down

of 100s of trees to do manner for the path. But this has

been overcome by the replanting of 5000 new trees which would

cover 16 football ellipses. This is about double the sum of

trees that were at that place antecedently. They don t attention about the

immense impact that the race had on Melbourne, alternatively they

unsuccessfully protest against it and by making so it has cost

the Victorian taxpayers $ 1.3 million. But the path has

already been built and the first race held, so there is no

opportunity of it being removed and the park could ne’er be

transformed back to its original province. Although there was

about 5,000 dozenss of trash, it has all been cleaned

up and in the procedure, a figure of people have gained

impermanent employment.

The occupants of Albert Park that disagree with the thought for

the Grand Prix. They say it would botch the & # 8220 ; Parks Effect & # 8221 ;

and the exhausts will kill all works and carnal life there

antecedently. They say their houses will be engulfed with exhausts

and that it would non be really safe for their immature kids.

They do non experience safe with their houses so near to the

path. But on the other manus because their houses are so

near to the path the value of their places will lift.

Because the race was held so late it is difficult to judge how

large an impact it had on the economic system. Probably at the same

clip following twelvemonth would be a better clip to judge the impact it

had. But already we can see the benefits, Albert Park is now

known on a international graduated table, many new occupations have been

created, local and large concern have besides benefited due to

touristry. So it is rather obvious that the race overall was a

success with no thanks to the dissenters.
