The road which w refer ;to is that in the Akaroa and Wainui Road Board district leading up the German Bay Valley. This road is very generally used by the; Lβ Bpn's; Bay residents, as it is far more convienent and shorter than the Long Bay and Summit Road. 'The road however, is in a shocking state, being badly graded imd unmetalled in parts so that in the winter it almost olosee up the best outlet to Le Bon's Bay. Mr F. MoOuHough approached the Akaroa and Wainui Road Board -ome time ago and asked the Board to assist the Le Bon's residents in getting a grant for im 1 proving this road, but, nothing came of it, a-d the road is still unimproved.
