IMPORTANT CONFERENCE AT HAVER- FORDWEST. £20,000 TO £30,000 SCHEMES PROPOSED. Convened by Mr Arthur Thomas, County Surveyor to the Pembrokeshire Council, an important conference consisting of all the rural councils' surveyors, together with the chairmen of various Highway Committees, to consider road improvements under the Development Act was recently held at the Shire Hall, Haverfordwest. Colonel Ivor Philipps, M.P., who presided, gave a lucid explanation of the Act. He pointed out that those schemes which were to be assisted by local grants would probably be the first to re- ceive financial aid by the Road Board. The various schemes were then explained at length, and it was estimated that the total cost of these would be somewhere about £20,000 or £30,000. The schemes which have already been sanctioned by the County Main Roads Com- mittee are the Dinas Hill, the Pembroke to Tenby road, and the road from Haverfordwest to Hayscastle. These, it is calculated, will ab- sorb nearly the whole of the first year's grant. The Haverfordwest Town Council submitted a proposal for the demolition of eleven cottages in Prendergast with the object of widening the road 13 feet for a distance of 200 feet. The widening, if carried out, will be on the west side of Prenderga.at. The Haverfordwest Rural District Council sub- mitted schemes for the improvement of the Roads leading from Tierscross to Johnston (es- timated cost £600), the construction of a road from Hook through Freystrop (JE800), the im- provement* of the Hayscastle Mathry road, (JE1400), and the road from St. David's to Good- wick, which was estimated to cost several pounds. The Neyland Council desired the improvement of the Military Road. Mr J. S. Roberts, Little Milford, pointed out that most of the schemes were for the improve- ment of roads to be mained and taken over by the County Council, and under the Act pre- cedence was to be given to the construction of new highways such as the road through Frey- strop. In reply it was pointed out that as the money was drawn from petrol and motor licenses the improvement of existing roads was an important consideration. The conference was quite informal and the various representatives were asked to report fully on the schemes to the next meeting of the County Main Roads Committee.
