CENTENNIAL PARK To the Editor At a recent meeting of the Cen. tennial Park Board an application from the P.W.D. asking permission to conduct a survey for a new route to Piha was summarily dismissed. The reasons for this refusal as rZ ported, by no means reflects creri* on the intelligence of the board bers. To me, as one of hundred of mystified subscribers to the niir chase of the park the followim! points are of interest: (1) Mr Alim£ intimates that the P.W.D. should finS something "more worth white" What better investment than in spend a few thousand as part of a rehabilitation scheme which is eoin!» to give access to scenery and exDlnft something for which John Ciflwm has dug so deep in his nocket' o\ Mr. Mead with his "bush track «1i road''complex, s £ ould P av a visit to the Waipoura Forest. He should also explain how he expects middte aged and elderly people to view their purchase unless it is adequately roaded. (3) The scheme for exten sion to Anawhata Road, so blindlv referred back to the P.W.D. as an alternative was rejected nearly seven years ago because a survey showed the grade to be positively imprac ticable. (4) Aside from the Centen nial Park angle, the Piha ratepayers" and the thousands of visitors who visit this beautiful beach can go on and on—round and round—with an approach which is a veritable dis grace to the community. ADVANCE.
