ACCESS TO PIHA
Changes are taking place rapidly here in New Zealand, so we may be prepared for much to follow. Amongst these should be a railway to Piha through the mountains from Glen Eden. Many people go to Piha who have not the opportunity of staying long enough to enjoy it, as so much time is given to disposing of goods and mail on the road, and occasionally breakdowns occur which hamper the joy of everyone. Piha is becoming more and more popular, and it would pay the Government well to run trains frequently through the holiday season, as well as giving the Piha residents an opportunity of going to the city and returning the same day. At present there is no return bus, and residents are forced to stay over two nights if they desire to do some business. Apart from Ihis, many tracks would be opened up for hikers who now find the bush impractical. CURRICULUS KUMAR.
