Dangerous mountain road

Saturday 28 January 1939, The Sydney Morning Herald

LOWANNA, Friday.

Workmen on the Coramba-Dorrigo mountain road have been compelled to cease operations indefinitely because large rocks are constantly rolling out of the wet clay and on to the road.

For the last few months the road, which is narrow and winding, has been in the hands of the Main Roads Board. The surface is being widened and repaired, and wherever possible dangerous turns are being taken off.
