CARTER STREET METALLED [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 19 January 1940
CARTER STREET METALLED Like members of families of an cient lineage who are always pleased when the ancestral ghost is laid, motorists are always delighted to hear that the grey ghost of the road -dust-has been laid. This has re cently been done very effectively on the Greensborough-Eltham Road by the placing of many tons of heavy metal on the "spectre" Just before the holidays dust was between one and two feet thick on that section of Carter Street where the contractors were at work. The contractors have now metalled this stretch, but motorists are looking forward to the time when the El tham-Greensborough Road will be sealed.

At the same time' it was decided to make representa-1 tions to the Association to ascertainl whether, under such exceptional cir cumstances, the £1/1-/ guarant...
