The original plan provided, for twenty foot spans across Baroness Road. The southern half of the south- ern approach is apparently to be filled. But no mention is made of masonry or concrete retaining walls along the sides of same. This would be neces- sary as "without retaining walls there would be very little roadway left be- tween'the sidewalk, curb and toe of slope. I would therefore recommend that the P.
