CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 9 March 1939
Dear Sir, I desire to bring before ths notice of those of your readers who may not already be aware of the position, a matter which is of vital importance to the Borough as a whole and to the Silver- stream-Trentham end in particu- lar. I refer to the Council's recent attempt to de-restrict the previ- ously existing speed limit of 30 miles .per hour from Silverstream to Camp Road, Trentham, a dis- tance, I understand, of approxi- mately two miles. In the first place, Sir, why dif- ferentiate between various inter- nal districts within the. Borough itself as -regards the question of speed? .1 cannot . imagine" any valid justification for this incou-- sistency, buf • sound argumeat- . could be produced, if such were necessary, .*.n support of uniform- ity. . , ■ Allow me to point out also, for; the benefit of those who may imagine that the term " de-restri;>. tion" means merely the raising of the speed limit from 30 to 40 miles per hour that this is not.so i. ...
