FOR THE EXHIBITION
AUTOMOBILE ASSOCIATION COMMENT
"The executive anticipates that during the Centennial Exhibition period from November, 1939, to May, 1940, there will be a heavy influx of members from other districts and provision will be made to meet the heavy demands which will no doubt be made on the association during that period." says the annual report of the Automobile Association (Wellington).
"At the present time two plans are in the course of preparation for the purpose of giving information relating to (a) routes to the Exhibition and (b) parking provisions. in the vicinity of the Exhibition.
"These plans are being prepared after consultation with the Wellington City Council'in regard to the general control of traffic. The executive has offered full co-operation with the council and the Exhibition Company during the Exhibition period.
"There is one very important aspect of Exhibition traffic which the executive feels should be made the subject cf special comment, and it is in regard to the provision of lighting the Evans Bay foreshore route," continues the report. "While the council is making provision for lighting of certain sections of the routes leading to the Exhibition, it is not making any provision for the efficient lighting of the Evans Bay Road between Point Jerkin gham and the Patent Slip, a distance of about one and a quarter miles. This is a matter for regret because the advantages of widening this road will be considerably nullified so far as night traffic is concerned, and furthermore for heavy night traffic this short section will prove to be extremely dangerous.
"The executive hopes that in the short time which will elapse between now and the opening of the Exhibition this important matter will receive the favourable reconsideration of the council."
