Roads at Mt Eliza [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 14 October 1921
Ioads at 4t Eliza On the same subject, another correspondent writes-Can noth ing be done to secure in future a reasonably fair sideway when roads are undergoing repairs ? I refer particularly to the bad state of things recently existing on the Point Nepean Road, near Mount Eliza. It was positively dangerous to pass along the sec tion when it was in the hands of the contractor. It would appear that the trouble arises in all such cases from the practice of break ing up and dealmng with too great a stretch of road at the one time. There are patches of ploughed road, then patches of rough me tal, then a patch of rolled metal, and then another patch of plough ed road. Why don't the contrac tors tackle a short section at a time, finish it off, and then go on with another short section? If this were done there would be the minimum of inconvenience and danger. It may appear to be un gracious to complain in view of the splendid prospect which the mprovement of the much used Point Nepean Road...

1ow to Make N4oqley Pulling Motors out of Bogs at. £1 per Time "The Argus" has been com plaining about the failure of con tractors undertaking the cons truction of main roads to keep the thoroughfare open to traffic with passable side tracks.
