A NEW TOOWOOMBA STREET
Saturday’s “Government Gazette” contained a notification that a new street has been permitted by Order-in-Council to be dedicated in Toowoomba. This new thoroughfare will run through from Russell-street to Taylor-street, between the well-known residences Vacy and Kingston. It will be 75 links in width and should prove of great benefit and convenience to residents in this and the adjacent localities.
