HAMILTON TO RAGLAN - REALIGNMENT AND SEALING [FROM OCR OWN" correspondent] HAMILTON", Wednesday Only one half-mile stretch of the Hamilton-Raglan road lying -within the Waipd County remains unsealed and it is hoped to complete the road, a stretch of "over five miles between the borough boundary and Whatawhata, as soon as the present metal foundation has had time to settle properly. Eventually a finishing coat, providing a first-class surface such as has been used on recent •work on the Great South Road, will be applied. Considerable realigning work has also been carried out on this stretch, ths work having occupied 10 months. Plans for the reconstruction, realignment and sealing of a stretch of the same' road for 4J miles out from Whatawhata have been drawn up by the Raglan County Council and when thev have been approved by the Main Highwavs Board tenders will be called. A survey of a further part of the road is to be taken early next year, the council s aim being eventually to seai the whole road to Raglan. Another work in the county which will benefit motorists will be the replacement of the present bridge over the Kaniwhaniwha Stream with a modern two-way concrete structure.
