Does Picton need a gondola?

The team Reporter from Marlborough Express

Interest in building a gondola overlooking Picton has reignited ahead of an update of the town's decade-old plan.

The multi-million dollar project was shelved in 2016.

Former motelier Eric Collins, who had worked to bring a gondola to Picton for 30 years, said "Picton needs it more than I do...I don't need that stress."

What do you think? Do you think Picton should have a gondola?
