Melbournes observation wheel almost spinning

first_imgThe Southern Star Observation Wheel at Docklands in Melbourne is reportedly set to reopen this year, four years after the city viewing platform shut down.Originally launched in 2008, the wheel spun for only 40 days before being shut down in January 2009 after cracks were found in its frame.Since, the ride has been taken apart and rebuilt and although the wheel’s owner, ING, has been reluctant to give an estimated finish date due to persistent setbacks, the company’s representative Ken Davis said the wheel could be spinning again in the “second half of 2013”, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.He explained the ride’s reopening has been delayed by Melbourne’s weather, which will put construction on hold during wind and rain. “This makes it extremely difficult to make any announcements regarding an opening timeline,” he said. Meanwhile, local retailer, Groove Train Cafe owner John Dimos said news of its reopening was a “small light at the end of the tunnel”.Mr Dimos said delays have caused “grief and pain” among local operators, even watching several business close around him.“I’ll be damned if I’m going to shut my doors,” he said.“I’m going to keep them open and absolutely make sure that we thrive when this thing comes back.” The wheel that spun for 40 days is set to go round again.
