Developmental Road Opening

TAREE, Thursday. — The
Commissioner for Main
Roads, Mr. H. M. Sherrard,
will officially open the Jordan
developmental road on Satur-
day.

The opening of the road
will shorten the route from
the Manning district to the
tablelands by more than 50
miles.  

Construction work on the
new section and improve-
ments to the existing tracks
have been going on for the last
two years.

The Department of Main  
Roads spent more than
£18,000 on the project. The
developmental road leads
through Nowendoc to Walcha.
