New Forest Road for Tumut Area

3 October 1959 The Canberra Times 

The N.S.W. Forestry Commission will start work immediately on the first nine miles of another major forest road in the Tumut district.

The new road will cost 70,000.

The Minister for Conservation, Mr. Wetherall, who announced this to-day, said the new road - known as "Wee Jasper Road" - would be the fourth major road built in the district for plantation purposes.

In the past few years the commission had spent about 4,000 on roads for a huge plantation programme in the Tumut region.
