The Chairman,

TRAFFIC AND BUILDING REGULATIONS COMMITTEE


Sir,


The Construction Committee for the XVIth Olympiad, Melbourne, 1956, has requested me to bring before the Traffic & Building Regulations Committee reconsideration of construction of the proposed roadway immediately north of the Melbourne Cricket Ground, on the prolongation of Jolimont Street and on an alignment that would allow the road to be continued through to Punt Road, with the view to asking the Melbourne Cricket Club their opinion of such a proposal.


The Construction Committee had before it a report stating that the Melbourne Cricket Club had had discussions with the Melbourne City Council concerning the replacement of the road and drainage adjacent to the new stand, and the Council's view that the cost, appoximately £12,000, should be to the account of the Melbourne Cricket Club. The Club does not accept this view, although the necessity of the new road and drainage has been brought about by the construction of the new stand. The Melbourne Cricket Club's representative, Me. Chadwick, stated that the Club had not been asked for its opinion in regard to the proposed through roadway.


Last year the proposal was rejected by the Minister of Lands, which is an alternative to that passed at a recent meeting of the Council and for which the Minister of Lands has been asked to approve. Councillors Bernard Evans was appointed representative of the Construction Committee to discuss the problem with the Council.


I have the honor to be,

Sir,

Your obedient servent,


City Engineer.
