COLWYN BAY AND THE! EiLECTRJIC I TRAMWAY. At a meeting of the Colwyn Bay Coun- cil on Tuesday it was reported good pro- gress was being made at Rhos with the laying of the tram line, but it was not so great on the main road,where greater difficulties were met with. The trades- men and other east of Station Road peti- tioned for the Tramway Company to he urged to proceed with the construction of the line immediately, at least as far as Greenfield Road and on to the Groes Bridge as early as possible. At present the line ends at the top of Station Road. A letter was read from Mr Sellon, managing director of the Tramway Com- pany, intimating that the Board of Trade suspended the powers to make that part of the line, and made them to some extent I contingent upon the railway being con- tinued to Old Colwyn. He was, however, prepared to go on to the Bridge provided the Council would not make the acquisi- tion of land from Mr Emmot, Barlow, M.P., near the old laundry, a condition precedent to the building of the portion of the railway. In reply, Mr J. Amphlett, the clerk, stated that he wrote that the Council were not likely to make such a condition, and urging that the company should at once pay over to the Council the agreed sum of 231,000 in consideration of the necessary widening of the road. After some rather warm discussion, the Council decided to widen a portion of the road at once, at a cost of about 2160. The Clerk added that Mr Sellon would use every endeavour to meet the wishes of the Council with regard, to the exten- sion towards the Groes Bridge.
