(2.)  CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION.
(a.) Vancouver Island.—No further extension of track has been undertaken since 1921,
the head of steel remaining at Mile 74, south end of Cowichan Lake.
(b.) Kamloops-Kelowna Line.—No construction-work has been done on this line since 1920.
(3.)  WESTMINSTER BRIDGE—RENEWALS AND REPAIRS.
Retaining-wall.—¥he old log crib supporting Government railway embankment along Front
Street was replaced with a concrete retaining-wall 1,365 feet in length, in addition to 330 feet
of reinforced slab-construction wall between Canadian Pacific Railway and Provincial Government tracks at Glen Creek. The above work was commenced in June by Robertson & Partners,
Ltd., contractors, and completed in December.
Highway Floor.—The Vancouver Pile Driving and Contracting Company completed its
reflooring contract in February, also refraining three timber bents on south highway approach
where it connects with steel trusses. D 6 British Columbia. 1924
The Cotton Company, Ltd., commenced operations on its asphaltic concrete paving contract
in March and completed the work by Alay 6th. In order to preserve the correct operating balance
of the swing-span it was found necessary to reduce the weight of the pavement at each end
of this truss by using timber fillers covered with a sheet asphalt wearing surface.
Pier-protection Crib.—On account of abnormally low water in the early winter months
floating ice was carried below the up-stream sheeting of the protection-crib at swing-span pier,
damaging the nose-piling. Three new hose-piles were driven and the iron nose-plates extended
down to extreme low-water mark by the Fraser River Pile Driving Company during April.
B.C.E.R. High Transmission Towers.—The work of straightening the south tower and erection of the new system of bracing was completed by the British Columbia Electric Railway
Company in June, after which work was commenced on the north tower and completed by
August.
Signals and Interlocking.—Some trouble has been experienced in connection with existing
re-entrance bonds along the track, which have proved totally inadequate to take care of the
return current in the rails when the British Columbia Electric Railway freight-trains are climbing the grade south of the bridge. Three new re-entrance bonds of the most modern type and
enlarged capacity have been installed, and it is proposed to gradually replace all the old bonds
with this improved type.
The original interlocking wire system in wooden boxing was replaced on swing-span by
new wiring enclosed in metal conduits, this being a preliminary step towards rewiring the entire
bridge system, as the old wires and box conduits were found to be practically worn out.
Swing-span Machinery.—The Heaps Engineering Company was awarded a contract for
installation of two OS. boxes designed to reinforce the lower end of main shaft which swings
this span, and completed the work in April. Repairs to worm-gears, driving-arms, etc., were
also carried out by this firm at the same time.
One of the tower castings supporting wedge-driving machinery developed a fracture and
was replaced by a new and heavier casting.
Owing to constant deterioration of existing worm-gears and wheels which turn the swing-
span, a new set of bronze wheels and forged carbon-steel worms was ordered from the Dominion
Bridge Company.
Locomotive and Train Loading.—In view of the rapid increase of locomotive weights beyond
the load limits for which this bridge was originally designed in 1902, the Dominion Bridge Company (which fabricated and erected the structure) was authorized in December to undertake a
thorough investigation of the additional stresses set up by modern locomotive and train loading,
from the plans and other data in its possession.
Track-ties.—Four hundred aud twenty track-ties were renewed between Brownsville and
the north end of fill; 120 ties were renewed on the Great Northern north approach; 218 ties
were renewed on the British Columbia Electric west approach.
South Highway Approach.—On account of very heavy truck traffic during the laying of
pavement on the Pacific Highway the flooring became very loose on the south highway approach.
Nearly all this floor was taken up and renailed and a load limit of 8 tons gross, with a speed
limit of 0 miles per hour, was put in force. This approach was given a coat of tarvia by the
Barrett Company in November.
Bridge Piers.—J. D. Black. C.E., took soundings of bridge piers on January 4th, 5th, and 6th.
Galvanized Flume.—Four hundred and fifty feet of 15-inch galvanized-iron flume was laid
along west railway approach to take off drainage from adjacent cut and has fulfilled the desired
objective in keeping British Columbia Electric track dry; this work was done in October.
East Wooden Trestle Approach.—In October the Canadian National Railway completed
filling in approximately 400 feet of east Port Mann trestle, the stringers being taken out at
the same time. ■
Bridge-painting.—The usual summer programme of painting was carried out, a large portion
of the bridge-steel being cleaned and painted with red lead, followed by a coat of graphite
bridge-paint. All square timber in the south trestle approach from end of bridge-steel, comprising thirty-two bents, was painted with creosote oil. The railing on highway traffic deck
was also painted from end to end of bridge.
Steel Rails.—The Great Northern Railway Company replaced six 80-lb. steel rails on the
north approach to bridge, and also one 80-lb. rail at end of swing-span. 14 Geo. 5 Department of Railways. D 7
Swing-span Openings.—During the year 1922 1,417 boats passed through the swing-span,
this figure including fifty-two steamships.

(2.)   CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION.
(a.) Vancouver Island.—No further construction-work has been undertaken, the head of
steel remaining at Mile 74, south end of Cowichan Lake.
(b.) Kamloops-Kelowna Line.—No construction-work has been done on this line during
the year.
(3.)   WESTMINSTER BRIDGE—RENEWALS AND REPAIRS.
Stress diagrams and calculations were received during March, and in April the Dominion
Bridge Company sent out W. Chase Thomson, Consulting Engineer, of Montreal, who made a
detailed and very thorough examination of the entire structure in order to determine its present
condition after twenty years of service, and also to study the reinforcement required for safe
operation of present traffic on railway and highway sections respectively. As a result of his
investigation, Mr. Chase Thomson reported that the bridge was considerably overstressed beyond
the original limits for which it was designed iu 1902, and recommended that reinforcement-work
should be commenced as soon as possible, in accordance with plans submitted by him. Owing
to the heavy railway traffic which only allows short intervals betw7een trains, this work could
not be let on any other basis than "cost plus," and the Dominion Bridge Company, having submitted carefully calculated estimates for each separate section of the bridge, was authorized
on August 28th to carry out the most urgently necessary portion of proposed reinforcement-work.
Its supervising staff, consisting of an engineer, foreman, and assistant foreman, arrived
early in November, and after getting the equipment set up started work on reinforcement of
swing-span upper chord system, together with extension of signal tower-house to provide accommodation for an auxiliary engine and generator capable of supplying power to open the bridge
in the event of British Columbia Electric Railway current being cut off.   This work was com- I
D 12 British Columbia. 1924
pleted during December, together with the jacking-up of 380-foot fixed span for adjustment of
roller bearings at each end. During the same period reinforcement of plate girders carrying
highway approach at north end of bridge was also completed on five spans and preliminary
operations started for removal of trough-steel flooring on west leg of railway approach. Local
men were employed on all the above work.
Interlocking.—All interlocking, trunking, and wire has been taken out south of the swing-
span and approximately 49,800 feet of new wire put in, 3,300 feet of conduit being laid to carry
above wires.
Auto Traffic.—The auto traffic across the bridge has increased greatly during the last year.
On September 3rd (Labour Day) fully 10,000 cars crossed the bridge, and an official record
taken from May 13th to 31st gave the following figures:—

Swing-span Machinery.—In June the old worm-shaft used in connection with driving the
wedges at south eud of swing-span was replaced and the old gear was given half a turn to
bring the unused teeth into action pending arrival of new gears and oil-reservoirs from the
Dominion Bridge Company. On September 5th and Gth old worms and worm-gears were replaced,
at both ends of swing-span, with new nickel-steel worms and phosphor-bronze worm-gears.
Ties, Stringers, and Caps.—Two hundred and ninety-three ties were renewed by C.N. section-
gang at east end of Port Mann approach on Government track; eighty-seven ties were renewed
on trestle between CN. and G.N. switches at south end of bridge; twenty-four ties were renewed
between G.N. home signal and B.C.E.R. switch at north end of bridge; eight stringers were
renewed near C.N. and G.N. switches at south end of bridge; ten 50-foot piles were driven with
two new7 caps and eight new stringers on south trestle approach, where Pacific Highway7 under-
crossing is located; four caps were renewed near CN. switch at south end of bridge.
Navigation Signal.—This signal was asked for by the New Westminster Harbour Commissioners and has been installed for the purpose of warning approaching boats, in case it was
found for any reason impossible to open the swing-span.
Bridge-painting.—About three-quarters of the bridge-steel has been gone over for rust-spots,
which were first cleaned, then covered with red lead, and finally painted with graphite bridge-
paint ; 1,750 lb. of red lead and 10 barrels of graphite bridge-paint were used on this work
during the year. The thirty-two framed bents in highway and railway trestle approach from
south end of the bridge-steel to commencement of the pile-bents have been painted with creosote
oil.
Steel Rails.—Thirty-one new rails (SO-lb.) have been put in on the south end of bridge; six
new rails (80-lb.) have been put in on the north end of bridge; one new rail (80-lb.) has been put
in on the end of swing-span; five badly broken rails were found by the bridge watchmen in
their rounds during the year.
Highway Gates.—Wires operating these gates have been transferred from the interlocking-
machine levers (with the exception of the indication wires) to a separate switchboard, and
an annunciator has been installed in connection with the lowering and raising of the gates,
giving a much improved signal system between the towerman and the watchman.
Auxiliary Plant.—The advisability of installing an engine and generator to operate the
swing-span when British Columbia Electric power is cut off owing .to storm damage or other
outside causes beyond control was discussed in 1913 and again in 1918, but no definite action
was taken until August, 1923, when the Canadian Fairbanks-Morse Company was given an order
for one 45-horse-power semi-Diesel engine and a 550-volt direct-current generator, which arrived
in Vancouver at the end of December ready for installation early in the new year. Siving-span Openings.—During the above period 1,703 boats passed through the swing-span,
including eighty steamships.
