Repeated hereunder is Section 31 of
the Road Ordinance 1914.
"If any person tills, plants, digs or
cultivates any steep, precipitous or sloping
land within ten feet of the edge of any
road. or undermines or digs away or
excavates the ground or burns wood for
charcoal or for any other purpose at the
base or under the perpendicular or preci-
pitous part or side of any road, he shall
be guilty of an offence against this
Much expense is caused annually to
Government by contraventions of this
Section of the Ordinance, and the money
to move the slides and keep the read and
drains open must come from maintenance
funds, these should really be spent in
routine verging ditching and resurfacing.
In order to see that those who abide by
the law do not suffer for those who dis.
regard it by having to put up with a
poorer condition of road than they are
entitled to expect, it is the intention to
carry out an investigation very shortly
and to take legal action against all persons
contravening the section quoted.
In the meantime persons who have tilled,
d ug or cultivated land etc. within ten
feet of a road are advised to re-establish
with the advice of the Agricultural
Department strong rooted plants, bamboo
or verti-vert at the first opportunity, in
consideration of which no legal action
will be necessary.
