CONCRBTK KeBBING AND CHANNELLING—At Wtdnesdoy's meeting of tbe Akatoa Borough Council a motion was carried to effect that the kerCing and channelling, be done from the Bank corner to Benoit street, and from Davio's norner to Bruce hotel on both sides of the etraot- It appears to us that the chan nelling of tk3 portion of the seaside from Davis , a might be left till the whole of the Esplanade is undertaken. It would bo better to do the concrete kerbing and channelling in Jolie street south and up Bruce Terrace fif-it, as the streets are in a bad stafco of ueg. I'.esaatar as footpaths are concoraetl, and they ere both fronting on residences all the way The portion known as King Ed» ward's' Esplanade, from Mr Davis's corner, has had the kerbing put in, and as the Borough cannot afford to do the whole of the work at once out of ordinary revenue, it appears better to Isavo this piece of channelling till after Jolio street and Bruce Terraoe have boon completed.
