Invest in tourism infrastructure

James Gleeson is correct (Letters, January 18) that the most is not being made of the tourism trade. But better infrastructure is required throughout the country, with more public toilets and so on for visitors.

The employment created by public tourism infrastructure investment would be repaid over time, and it would help to stimulate the economy.

Up to the 1950s, all maintenance on minor roads was contracted out. These roads were never overgrown or potholed. Today the majority of minor roads have overgrown verges, which greatly reduce the width of the carriageway.
