We are heading out of Bomba to sample the new roads to take Hyasa, we must still use the tortsons old road as it winds its way around the hills. This type of road construction is completely outdated, and the new road will give us faster and safer driving. Modern earth moving equipment enables straighter roads to be built with easier gradients. But machines are not winning this battle on their own, for women carry the broken stone for the road bed. One of the most important new roads runs to Salina and will carry a large part of Nyasaland's 3 million pound tobacco crop to the railhead at Balima. The new road construction is being done for economic reasons. And similarly to handle the Lake trade, further improvements are being made at Hkata Bay. This entails the building of a new jetty. Important as such economic considerations might be, the new road will be much appreciated by visitors to the Lake Shore Hotels at Salima. It will do much to populari??? this holiday paradise. A commendable programme whichever way you look at it, it brings Lake Nyasa a lot closer.
