The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 76

South Island

South Island.

As regards the South Island, I propose that we should connect Blenheim with Culverden. Bellgrove with St. Ormond's, Culverden with Reefton. This would join up all the Canterbury, Nelson, and Westland lines, and would require 255 miles.

Further south I would connect Ranfurly with Gladstone, and Lawrence with Gore, 123 miles. This would give the South Island:—
New lines—378 miles at £2,500 per mile £945,000
Lines now open—1,249 miles, cost 10,112,972
