Bitumen Surfacing of Adelong Streets

22 October 1946 The Tumut and Adelong Times

As the result of a complaint from the Adelong Progress Association in connection with the dust nuisance in the main shopping area of Adelong, Tumut Shire Council decided at its meeting last week to endeavor to raise a loan of 1,200 to carry out the bitumen surfacing of the main street to the kerbside and extensions of the road portion. 

The Engineer, R. O. Dixon, estimated the cost of the side sections from the Royal Hotel to the Masonic Temple at 308 and the cost of the centre roadway only from Tumut-St. to Selwyn-St at a further 275.   

Cr. Roche suggested that the plan be extended from the end of Tumut-St. towards Wagga and to the hospital on the Mt. Horeb Road.

This would be a matter for the Main Roads Department.
