Local historians weekly "Back Issues" article in the Manawatū Standard. Palmerston North City Council has grappled with the problem of discouraging motorists from using roads around Te Marae o Hine/The Square as a thoroughfare route. A number of roading and traffic flow proposals have been considered and tried since the 1960's. Included amongst the ideas tried was a one way traffic system around Te Marae o Hine/The Square, which proved not to be popular. It was abandoned in 1970.
