The importance of continuing the con- struction of the Kalamunda-Mundaring road was stressed by Mr. R. S. Sampson. M.L.A.. at a meeting of the Darling Range
Road Board yesterday. Mr. Sampson said that the road was part of a developmental road which was approved some years ago under a Federal roads scheme. To date construction had been carried on from Kalamunda to Piesse's Brook, nearly half the distance to Mundaring Weir. As part of the scheme, a substantial bridge had been constructed below the weir. In addition to opening up territory, the road would relieve traffic on the York-road, and would provide one of the most beautiful drives in the hills districts. Mr. Levi Wallis said it was desirable that the route of the highway should be altered by continuing it from a point near Mr. W. Loaring's property at Piesse's Brook. In addition to providing a better grade, this would give access to the hills centres to seitlers residing at Hackett's Gully. The board decided to make an inspec- tion of the route, after which an esti- mate for the construction of the road would be prepared.
