Introduction

When I started compiling this record I had in mind a brief sketch of the road from the days when it was a well-trodden Maori track. Travellers - human and animal - were in my mind's eye a long, long procession - a pageant of the years.

I have confined mention of roading contracts to as few as I could. There were hundreds of them, but statistics in a story are wearisome.

The story was for the Central Hawke's Bay College. I hoped the pupils who daily travel that road would see it as they never had before.
