NEW GUYRA-EBOR ROAD OPEN

The construction of the new Guyra-Ebor
road, which connects the New England High-
way at Guyra with the Armldale-Grafton road
near Ebor, is now complete, with the excep-
tion of two very short sections, advises the
N.R.M.A. touring department. The road has
been opened to traffic, but care should be
exercised by drivers at creek and river cross-
ings, as in most instances side tracks and
temporary bridges are still in use, pending
the completion of the new structures. The
new road, which is about 50 miles long, pro-
vides another cross country route from the  
tablelands to the coast, and takes the travel-
ler through Aberfoyle, opening up a stretch
of attractive country.
