Letter to the Editor- Saturday, July 19: Fantasy highway

IN RESPONSE to Hugh Saddleton and Ziggy Koenigseder (CCA July 9), I would just like to comment on the fantasy highway.

Sixty years ago I lived with my parents and brother in a house in the middle of what is now Hogbin Drive North. My parents owned the house but the land was, I assume, Crown land because it was under "99-year lease".

My parents were very concerned because we were under the misapprehension the highway was supposed to be coming any day where Hogbin Drive is and they would either have to move the house or lose it because they couldn't sell.

My grandfather was a member of what was then Park Beach Progress Association and he would have been up-to-date on what was happening.
