REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER
Douglas Building,
Victoria, B.C., November 16th, 1953.
Hon. P. A. Gaglardi,
Minister of Public Works, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—A report of the activities of the Department for the fiscal year 1952-53 is
herewith submitted for your consideration.
A very great amount of work was undertaken by the Department during the year
with excellent results.
Contracts were let for 88.20 miles of highway, the principal work undertaken comprising 17.52 miles on the Trans-Canada Highway, 8.59 miles on the Southern Trans-
Provincial Highway, 13.39 miles in the Peace River District on the John Hart Highway,
and 7.42 miles on the Patricia Bay Highway. Other main roads throughout the Province
that were constructed or reconstructed comprised 41.28 miles.
Seventeen bridges and two important ferry-landings were completed, representing an
expenditure of $1,800,000, excluding the cost of bridges on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Construction was also commenced on twelve other bridges.
An extensive surfacing programme was carried out, comprising some 205.26 miles
of new work and 157.87 miles of resurfacing on the principal highways of the Province.
Six gravel-crushing plants were operated, crushing a total of 784,277 tons of aggregate.
Extensive location and survey were undertaken, comprising 242.5 miles of final
location, 64.9 miles of preliminary location, and 250.0 miles of reconnaissance, making
a total of 557.4 miles of survey.
The Architects' Branch of the Department carried out extensive work, completing
many important buildings. The 264-bed Pearson Tuberculosis Hospital at Vancouver
was completed. Other buildings completed were new Court-houses and Government
office buildings at Chilliwack, Courtenay, Golden, Terrace, and Vanderhoof.
During the year 22,080 miles of highways and 10,632 miles of trails have been
maintained, and this mileage of highways comprises 3,381 miles of trunk highways,
2,697.76 miles of main highways, and 16,001 miles of other roads. In addition to this
total, 607.65 miles are classified as arterial or secondary, details of which are shown in
statement attached to this Report.
Some 12,490 miles of highway were kept clear of snow, involving 313,248 snow-
plough miles, at an average cost of $123.03 per mile kept open.
The amount of subdivisions in unorganized areas in the Province is still increasing,
which also increases the number of permits issued by the Department for private entrances
and connections with public utilities. The number of letters handled by the Department
comprised 98,926.
Existing roads were improved, maintained, and widened by the various district
officials, and also the necessary drainage, clearing, and renewal of culverts were successfully carried out throughout the Province. When necessary, farmers were allowed to
work out tax arrears by contributing to road work, a practice which has proved very
satisfactory in the past and has been of assistance to the Department where temporary O 10 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1952-53
labour is scarce. Great credit is due to our Divisional Engineers, District Engineers, and
District Superintendents for their continuous perseverance and attention to the maintenance of local roads and main highways under their jurisdiction, notwithstanding when,
in some cases, the elements have been adverse, they have had to be on duty practically
twenty-four hours a day in the interest of safety of the travelling public, and the same
credit is due to other members of the Department in the field.
Detailed reports from the various sections of the Department and statistical information are attached to the Report to qualify any of the particular references made above.
In conclusion, I may say that a very satisfactory year's work has been accomplished,
and I wish to record the efficiency, dependability, and loyalty of our staff.
E. S. Jones,
Deputy Minister.
REPORT OF THE BRIDGE ENGINEER
During the fiscal year 1952-53 seventeen bridges and two important ferry-landings
were completed; construction was also commenced on twelve other bridges.
The total expenditure for the year on these structures was approximately $1,800,000,
excluding the cost of bridges on the Trans-Canada Highway, of which three were completed and construction commenced on two others.
Details of the principal bridges completed during the year are listed elsewhere in
the Report.
These structures were of various types, conforming generally to conventional
methods of design and construction, except in the case of the Mosquito Creek Bridge
on Marine Drive, West Vancouver, where prestressed concrete was chosen as being a
suitable type of construction for that particular location.
Prestressed concrete has important advantages over conventional reinforced concrete, and economical and efficient structures can be produced through its use when
conditions are suitable.
In the case of the Mosquito Creek Bridge, facilities were available at a central plant
for the production of the various concrete sections which would meet the high standard
of materials and workmanship required by this type of construction. The transportation
and placing of the precast prestressed concrete beams, weighing 12Vi tons and measuring
62 feet in length, was not a difficult or expensive matter, as the haul was not long and
suitable equipment was available.
Mosquito Creek Bridge is the first prestressed concrete highway bridge to be built in
Canada, and in this connection it is worth while to note that this is the third occasion on
which the Province has pioneered in the use of new types of construction for highway
bridge work.
The first occasion was during the fiscal year 1936-37, when the composite type of
deck, consisting of a concrete slab on creosoted laminated timber so constructed that they
act together as a unit, was employed in the construction of the Haig Overhead Crossing.
The second occasion was in the construction of the Stave River Bridge in the fiscal
year 1949-50, when steel H-piles and "Prepakt" concrete were used in the construction
of the piers.
In each of these two cases the action of the Department of Public Works in making
use of new types of construction has been fully justified, and it is expected that in the case
of the Mosquito Creek Bridge the results will be equally satisfactory.
The steel bridges at Ashcroft, Savona, Spences Bridge, Lytton, Kamloops, Revel-
stoke, Boat Encampment, and Trail, aggregating approximately 3,400 tons of steel, were
cleaned and painted by contract. report of the chief architect
O 11
The timber stiffening trusses on the Copper River, Churn Creek, Chilcotin, and
Lillooet Suspension Bridges were renewed, and other work necessary to put these bridges
in good order was carried out.
Significant progress was made in the work of replacing small timber bridges by
culvert and fills wherever possible, thus eliminating maintenance and replacement costs;
during the year a total of 150 bridges, representing a length of nearly 2 miles of bridging,
were thus eliminated.
The greater part of this work was carried out by the district bridge crews, which also
undertook the construction of several timber bridges in addition to the usual maintenance
and repair work.
C. K. Saunders,
Bridge Engineer.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ARCHITECT
During the fiscal year 1952-53 good progress was made by this Branch in all phases
of building-construction activity. A total of fifty-seven building, electrical, and mechanical-installation contracts were completed, for a total cost of $7,743,864. The larger and
more important of these completed contracts consisted of new Court-houses and Government office buildings at Chilliwack, Courtenay, Golden, Terrace, and Vanderhoof, with
extensive alterations and renovations to the Vancouver Court-house. Hospital work
consisted of three 100-bed hospital units at The Woodlands School, New Westminster,
and a 100-bed nurses' home at the same institution. The 264-bed Pearson Tuberculosis
Hospital at Vancouver was completed, plus extensive remodelling to the three main
hospital units at the Tranquille Sanatorium.
Other important work completed consisted of a new Health and Welfare Building at
Kamloops and a Motor-vehicle Building at New Westminster, extensive alterations and
renovations to the Parliament Buildings, Victoria, plus several Public Works garages and
equipment buildings throughout the Province.
New boiler and power-plant installations have been completed at The Woodlands
School, New Westminster, Essondale, and Oakalla Prison Farm, and extensive electric-
wiring contracts have been completed at Essondale, Oakalla, and Vernon.
Major contracts now under way consist of a laundry and stores building at Essondale, a laundry building at Tranquille, and a temporary prison building at Oakalla Prison
Farm.
Plans and specifications have been completed for a number of different building
projects, including an addition to the Nanaimo Court-house; Boys' Training School, Wellington; Provincial Health Building, Vancouver; and a 220-bed Tuberculosis Mental
Hospital at Essondale. Sketch and preliminary plans are now being prepared for several
large new projects, and it is expected that if these are approved, construction can be
commenced next year.
In addition to the foregoing new work, an extensive programme of maintenance and
renovation to existing Government buildings was proceeded with, and I am pleased to
report that good progress has been made in bringing all buildings up to an improved
standard of efficiency and condition. O  12

REPORT OF THE MAINTENANCE ENGINEER
Total expenditure for the maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries throughout
the Province (including snow-removal) amounted to $11,836,621, this being an increase
of $1,200,256 over the previous year.
Total expenditure for snow-removal and sanding amounted to $1,540,390. A total
of 12,490 miles of highway was kept open for traffic, which involved 313,248 snow-
plough miles at an average cost of $123 per mile, and the travelling public experienced
very little inconvenience as a result of this service. Winter maintenance was inaugurated
on the John Hart Highway, and this road was kept open as a through route from Prince
George to Dawson Creek, a distance of 255 miles. Temporary camps were established at
Mile 90 and Mile 178, these camps being equipped with two Walters " Snow Fighters "
(with V-plough and two wing ploughs), two large power-graders (with V-plough and
wing plough), two large tractors, and several trucks (mounted with blade ploughs). Radiotelephone equipment was installed for communication between the camps and the district
offices at Prince George and Pouce Coupe. The total snowfall during the winter was
heavy, with 6 feet at Prince George, 8V2 feet at Mile 57, 15 feet at the Parsnip River, 20
feet at Azouzetta Lake, 8 feet at Commotion Creek, and then tapering off to 5 feet at
Dawson Creek. This route was kept open for through traffic, with the exception of
several nights when closure was necessary due to extreme cold and drifting conditions.
Three large body-type sanders were purchased to combat ice conditions in the Lower
Fraser Valley.
Most of the obsolete equipment has been replaced within the last three or four years,
and the districts are much better equipped to perform efficient routine maintenance.
Additional equipment such as power-mowers, screening plants, asphalt-rollers, etc., are
required in many of the districts, and there is a very definite shortage of power-graders
to provide an adequate and systematic patrol of the gravel roads. Rapidly increasing
traffic volumes necessitate a higher standard of maintenance, and maintenance appropriations must be increased considerably in order to meet the growing demands of local
organizations for improved facilities.
The engineering districts last year administered and expended over $6,000,000 on
day-labour projects. These funds produced approximately 75 miles of new roads, 212
miles of standard reconstruction, and approximately 500 miles of major improvements,
these being roads on which the alignment and grades were improved, the drainage
improved, and the road-bed widened and gravelled. In addition to the above-mentioned
work, a large mileage of roads was gravelled. This work provides for the full use of
Department equipment and personnel, and, as these projects are fairly well distributed
throughout all the districts in the Province, they also provide employment for local equipment and labour. These funds were expended on approximately 300 projects, most of
which range from $2,000 to $50,000, the average appropriation being approximately
$20,000.
This work is a most commendable accomplishment and a major step toward the
provision of adequate roads throughout the Province. It is essential that this means of
performing this work be continued in order to bring the many miles of roads which are
now inadequate to a standard which will be adequate for several years.
The mileage of highways which can be reconstructed to standard by contract each
year, at present costs, will definitely not begin to meet the existing need for adequate
highways; consequently, the districts must continue to perform reconstruction projects
over the easier sections of main roads and at the same time continue to improve sections
of road to a substandard which will make them adequate for the time being, even though
further reconstruction may be necessary within a few years.

REPORT OF THE LOCATION ENGINEER
Surveys carried out during the 1952-53 fiscal year on our highway system covered
242.5 miles of finalized location. The detail of these and incidental preliminary and
reconnaissance surveys are presented in the accompanying report for the fiscal year.
The cost of surveys for the year was $426,965.93 and covers all our surveys, including major legal surveys of highway rights-of-way undertaken in co-operation with the
Surveyor-General's Department and by land surveyors in private practice.
Increasing survey costs are directly related to survey requirements in the more
populated areas of the Province, where greater detail is essential to determine design, in
relation to settlement and public utilities.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
During the past year fifty-two ferries were operated under the jurisdiction of this
Department. These comprised eight major vessels, nine power cable barges, eight
chartered vessels, and twenty-seven miscellaneous types of ferries.
Traffic is steadily increasing at all ferry-sites, and each year a new record is established. In the 1952-53 fiscal year 2,233,472 vehicles were carried by the ferry system.
This was an increase of 410,456 vehicles, or 22 per cent, over the preceding year. The
increased volume of traffic was carried without any additional equipment and at very
little extra cost.
All ferries were inspected, detailed reports submitted, and necessary repairs and
replacements were carried out. REPORT OF THE CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER
O  17
Major repairs and renewals carried out during the year included the following:—
Kelowna.—A new ferry wharf was built at Kelowna. After four years' service the
M.V. " Pendozi " was placed on the ways for complete overhaul and inspection. Normal
service was maintained during this period by the other vessels at this site.
Francois Lake.—A new ferry wharf was built at Southbank.
Lulu Island.—A new ferry wharf was built at Woodwards Landing. Operation of
the Ladner-Woodward Ferry by a chartered company was discontinued on November 1st,
1952.   This ferry is now operated by the Department.
Boston Bar.—The obsolete gasoline-powered machinery at the North Bend Aerial
Ferry was replaced by modern electric machinery. The reduction in operating costs
brought about by the use of electricity at this site will offset the cost of the new machinery
in two and one-half years.
All ferries have operated very smoothly during the past year, and interruptions due
to breakdowns have been kept to a minimum.
H. K. Gann,
Superintendent of Ferries.
REPORT OF THE CONSTRUCTION ENGINEER
Trans-Canada Highway.—rSeventeen and one-half miles were completed during the
year, including the very rugged and difficult section adjoining the Yoho Park boundary
and also that section immediately east of Yale. Preliminary work was done on the
Victoria-Parsons Bridge, Three Valley, and Golden projects.
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway.—Two projects were under construction between Fernie and Elko; the first, covering approximately 5 miles west of Fernie, was
completed.
Cariboo Highway.—A further 14 miles in the vicinity of Lac la Hache were
completed.
Peace River Highway.—Two projects were completed, leaving about 20 miles to
be reconstructed for a modern highway between Prince George and Dawson Creek, the
southerly terminus of the Alaska Highway.
Other projects were terminated on the Nelson-Nelway and Trail-Salmo Highways,
thus affording a fully reconstructed modern highway between Trail and Nelson, via Salmo.
The Kamloops-Vernon Highway was completed to the junction with the Okanagan
Highway, about 5 miles north of Vernon.
Other work was in progress between Hopkins Landing and Port Mellon, on the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Galloway Rapids and Diana Creek, and on
the Okanagan Highway immediately north of Penticton.
Construction Quantities.—During the year these totals were as follows: Roadway
excavation—solid rock, 1,420,174 cubic yards, and other materials, 4,008,190 cubic
yards; culverts, 45,598 lineal feet; concrete for retaining-walls and drainage structures,
17,295 cubic yards; and gravel, 1,361,766 tons. O 18

REPORT OF THE TRAFFIC ENGINEER
TRAFFIC-LINE PAINTING
Using two modern high-capacity striping units, with two five-man crews, a total of
1,230 miles of highway was newly painted or repainted. This required the purchase of
12,690 gallons of paint and 37 tons of glass bead. A total cost of striping per mile of
highway was $66. This is a decrease of $36 per mile from last year's cost. The decrease
was the result of increased efficiency of the painting crews and lower material costs.
Lower material costs indicate the value of the work we are doing with the aid of the
Materials Engineer in testing paints and beads. In addition, it indicates the value of the
investigations we have made, which assured the obtaining of many competitive bids on
both paint and beads. While the cost per mile has been materially reduced, the quality
and durability of the traffic lines put down has increased, if anything, and these three
items of cost, quality, and durability now compare very favourably with work done by
other Provincial and State highway organizations.
HIGHWAY SIGNS
The sign-shop, under the Traffic Engineer's direction, was kept busy all year turning
out standard highway signs of a type which has met with a great deal of approval from
the public.
A shop staff, consisting of a foreman and four to eight men, was continuously
engaged in this work. Three Traffic Branch sign-maintenance trucks were engaged
during the greater part of the year erecting and maintaining signs throughout the Province.
This was in addition to the sign-maintenance work regularly done by district maintenance
crews.
A total of 9,200 standard highway signs was produced and sent out from the sign-
shop. An additional 700 special signs were produced for use on the highways, indicating
a 300-per-cent increase over the preceding year for this type of sign.
The work of administering, making, and erecting directional signs for tourist resorts
and auto courts was continued.
TRAFFIC SIGNALS
A number of accident studies and traffic-volume counts were made at intersections in
investigating the need for signals or other traffic-control devices. Eight overhead flashing
traffic beacons and eight traffic signals were installed during the year at various intersections throughout the Province. Plans for the use of nine traffic signals timed to give
progressive movement on Kingsway in Burnaby will be carried out next year.
TRUCK WEIGH-SCALES
•To facilitate the enforcement of truck-weight regulations, three permanent truck-
weighing scales were installed during the year at points throughout the Province.    This REPORT OF THE SURFACING ENGINEER
O 21
brings the total of permanent Departmental scales to twelve. One scale is yet to be
installed on Vancouver Island. Pending position of the new Trans-Canada Highway, a
portable scale pit was installed and operated at the south end of Parsons Bridge on the
Island Highway.
TRAFFIC SURVEY
During the summer months a survey of traffic volumes on all main roads throughout
the Province was made. One traffic enumerator equipped with a 1-ton panel truck and
thirty-two automatic traffic counters accomplished this work. From the data obtained,
and from bridge- and ferry-traffic records, a comprehensive report was made up. It is
planned to combine three years of traffic counts, in the Report of the coming year, in
order to indicate to advantage the change in traffic trends throughout the Province. Such
data should prove of great value in planning the expenditure of maintenance funds and
planning highway improvements and expansion.
INTERSECTION DESIGN AND CHANNELIZATION
The design and installation of channelization and traffic signals were completed on
two intersections on the Trans-Canada Highway south of Pattullo Bridge. Both installations have proved satisfactory for existing conditions. Channelization was achieved with
the aid of precast light-reflecting concrete curb, which was manufactured in British
Columbia for the first time specially for the Department. Traffic-actuated signals were
installed at one of the above intersections, and their added cost over fixed time signals has
proven to be justified by their greater flexibility and efficiency. It is anticipated that the
Department will make much greater use of this type of signal at rural intersections in the
future.
J. H. Harding,
Traffic Engineer.

The Department's six gravel-crushing plants produced crushed aggregate at fifteen
different locations throughout the Province.
A total production of 784,277 tons of aggregate was attained during the fiscal year.
D. T. Willis,
Surfacing Engineer.
REPORT OF THE MATERIALS ENGINEER
The prime purpose of the Testing Branch is to assist the various Public Works
Engineers by testing, inspection, and consultation, to ensure that construction materials
and procedures conform to Government specifications. Also assistance is given to solve
specialized problems, such as slides, drainage problems, soil investigations, etc.
Field operations for the season included the operation of a grading laboratory,
gravel-testing laboratory, and concrete-testing laboratory. These operations consisted
of one man each, equipped with the necessary testing apparatus and a truck. They
operated at the more important projects and where most urgently required. Considerable
other field work was carried out on soil-surveys, gravel-pit prospecting and testing, etc.
Operations in the Victoria laboratory consisted of testing and reporting of tests
which could not be done in the field or where field testing facilities were not provided.
A large phase of the work consists of testing all aggregates for concrete and supplying
design mixes for bridges, etc. Concrete test cylinders were cast on the project and sent
in for curing and testing. A total of 892 of such tests was made. Also 180 tests were
completed on 131 samples of aggregates to determine if they were suitable for concrete.
In addition, 157 tests were completed on aggregates, and 53 mixes designed and 62
trial batches mixed. This operation is being carried out for all important concrete work
now, such as bridges, large culverts, and retaining-walls, etc. Road gravel from prospective pits and crushed gravel required 197 tests aside from those carried out in the field.
Traffic paint was tested for the second season during the fiscal year. The high cost
of applying traffic paint requires that the most durable type, which is also easy to apply,
be selected. The Testing Branch did 91 laboratory tests on 18 samples submitted with
paint tenders by 11 companies. Test lines were applied at Whalley on the Trans-Canada
Highway for durability rating. These lines were evaluated and photographed for seven
months previous to purchase. The results provided a clear picture, making the job of
purchasing the best paint an easy one and eliminating a good deal of discussion. In
addition, 36 tests on nine samples of glass beads, used for reflectorizing traffic paint, were REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY O 27
carried out. The most suitable beads were then easily selected. The Traffic Engineer
reports a much more durable paint, at a great saving, as a result of this programme.
Also the paint has been much easier to handle and apply, resulting in a greatly reduced
application cost.
Many favourable comments have been received about the services provided by the
Testing Branch. In cases where construction materials are questionable, testing and
a report provides an unquestionable basis to reject or accept the materials. In many
cases this has eliminated difficult situations for the field engineers, and assisted them in
obtaining the best materials and a better job.
R. C. Thurber,
Materials Engineer.
REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY
In accordance with the " Electrical Energy Inspection Act," I have the honour to
submit my annual report for the fiscal year ended March 31st, 1953.
BOARD OF EXAMINERS FOR ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS
The Honourable Minister of Public Works has been pleased to appoint the following
members to the Board, effective January 1st, 1953: F. Holden, Electrical Inspector for
the Municipality of West Vancouver, representing cities and municipalities; J. Grumey,
electrical contractor, representing the Vancouver Electrical Association; and H. J. Sayer,
electrical contractor. Other members of the Board are L. Robson, Inspector of Electrical
Energy (Chairman), and L. Handy, Assistant Inspector of Electrical Energy. Twelve
meetings were held throughout the year.
PERMITS
The total number of permits issued during the year was 19,710. The number of
permits issued this year represents an increase over the previous year of 3,045 or an
increase of 18 per cent.
DISTRICT OFFICES
District offices are maintained at the following centres: Victoria, Nanaimo, Courte-
nay, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Prince Rupert, Prince George, Kamloops, Kelowna, Penticton, Trail, and Cranbrook. The West Coast and Howe Sound operate from the Vancouver
office.   In addition, four Inspectors work from the Vancouver office.
PROSECUTIONS
No prosecutions were initiated during the year.
EXAMINATION   OF MOTION-PICTURE PROJECTIONISTS
The department assisted the Provincial Fire Marshal in conducting twenty-two
examinations for projectionists. The regulations covering such examinations provide
that the Inspector of Electrical Energy be a member of this Examining Board in company
with the Fire Marshal.
CANADIAN STANDARDS ASSOCIATION
The Chief Inspector continued to represent the Province on the Approvals Council
of the Canadian Standards Association and on committees on the preparation and O 28 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1952-53
amendments to the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I. Two meetings were attended—
one in Toronto on May 28th, 29th, and 30th, and the other in Ottawa on June 2nd to
6th, inclusive. Much was accomplished at these meetings to finalize the proposed sixth
edition of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I.
At a meeting held in Toronto in October the new edition was finally adopted and
referred to the main committee for official acceptance. It is anticipated that the new
edition will be available for acceptance by Provincial authorities early in 1953.
Canadian Standards Association has now completed arrangements whereby electrical
equipment of European origin may be tested for acceptance by Canadian Standards
Association at the K.E.M.A. laboratories in Arnhem, Holland. These facilities will
increase the availability of approved electrical equipment for the Canadian market.
Excellent relations continue to exist with electrical inspection and engineering
authorities throughout Canada, and much value is obtained through these continued
conferences.
POLE-LINE PERMITS
The department, during the year, checked 375 applications for erection of pole-lines
on Crown lands or Provincial highways. This was an increase of 104 over the previous
year.   Recommendations on each were forwarded to the Chief Engineer.
PUBLIC WORKS
The department, during the year, continued to prepare electrical plans and specifications for the Provincial Department of Public Works. In addition, it has acted in a consulting capacity to other Government departments. The value of work carried out this
year was $392,384.21.
In addition to the preparation of plans and specifications, supervision was also
exercised over each contract during construction.
ACCIDENTS
There were forty-seven accidents recorded during the year. Of these, ten were fatal.
This represents an increase in the number of accidents reported for the previous year and
an increase in the number of fatalities. Ten fatalities occurred during this year, as against
six for the previous year.
L. Robson,
Inspector of Electrical Energy.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF INSPECTOR OF BOILERS
AND MACHINERY
In accordance with the provisions of the " Boiler and Pressure-vessel Act," I have
the honour to submit the fifty-first annual report of the operation of the Steam Boilers
and Machinery Inspection Department for the fiscal year ended March 31st, 1953.
THE ACT
It is recommended that all hot-water heating plants in apartments with three or more
suites be brought within the scope of the Act. At present such plants below 10 horsepower are exempt from inspection.
An interim certificate, which will allow the legal operation of new installations in
remote points of the Province pending the visit of an Inspector, is also necessary.
Amendments have been prepared which will accommodate both the above conditions. REPORT OF THE CHIEF INSPECTOR OF BOILERS AND MACHINERY        O 29
REGULATIONS
Since its publication in 1947, our Boiler Code has drifted into such obsolescence
that it is now necessary to have continual recourse to the Canadian Regulations for the
Construction of Boilers and Pressure Vessels (CSA-B51) in order to cope with present-
day advances in engineering.   CSA-B51 is now in common use in all Canadian Provinces.
The regulations now being redrafted will embrace CSA-B51 but will also contain
supplementary rules of a local nature.
NEW CONSTRUCTION
The large expansion programmes now under way in our pulp-mills and oil-refineries,
together with substantial orders for pressure equipment for the oil-refineries in Alberta
and Saskatchewan as well as for the huge cellulose plant at Edmonton, have increased
the volume of work in our Design Office 47 per cent above that of last year.
An indication of the interest that the rest of the continent is taking in the rapid
industrial development of British Columbia is that over 50 per cent of our Design Office
revenue came from outside the Province.
REFRIGERATION
There are now 107 refrigeration plants on our register, with a total tonnage of 8,064.
For guidance during the past two years our Inspectors have used the Canadian Refrigeration Code (CSA-B52). This procedure has helped to maintain a good standard of
safety both in existing and new construction. It is well received by owners and contractors. We feel that it would be in the public interest to establish this code by Order
in Council.
WELDING
Modification of our quarters now under way makes provision for our own welding-
shop, which on completion will expedite the examination of welders and so save valuable
time both for the candidate and ourselves. The number of welders examined is almost
40 per cent over that of last year. Superior tests have been established for those welders
engaged in higher classes of boiler and pressure-vessel work.
PERSONNEL
S. Smith was appointed Assistant Chief Inspector on July 1st, 1952, thus filling the
vacancy in this position caused by the sudden and untimely death of T. A. Wood.
One Inspector is now employed as Engineer Surveyor on full-time shop inspection,
and another Inspector is fully engaged on examination of engineers.

D. Denham,
Chief Inspector. O 30 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1952-53
REPORT OF INSURANCE AND SAFETY BRANCH
The increased frequency and consequent rising cost of traffic accidents involving
Government vehicles prompted the Government in December, 1951, to provide authority
by Order in Council for setting up an Interdepartmental Safety Committee, and also
provided for the classification of Insurance and Safety Officer within the Department,
who would act as Chairman of the Safety Committee.
The purpose of creating what is in effect a new branch of the Department was
twofold:—
(1) To deal with claims arising out of automobile accidents and to promote
a campaign to improve the traffic-accident record of all departments of
Government.
(2) To provide a centralized liaison office between the Department and the
Workmen's Compensation Board, and to study the best means likely to
reduce the suffering and cost of on-the-job accidents.
The first three meetings of the Safety Committee were held in 1951-52, when policy
and procedure were determined, following which certain informative bulletins were sent
out to acquaint all drivers of Government vehicles with the purpose of the Committee.
In April, 1952, the first meeting was held, in which accident reports were examined
and recommendations forwarded to the Deputy Minister concerned. During the year
twelve meetings of the Safety Committee were held.
A total of 392 accident reports for all departments was received during the year.
Of these, assessments were recommended in 90 cases. Fourteen appeals were received,
as a result of which five assessments were recommended refunded and one reduced from
$20 to $15. One Departmental employee put a truck to his own use and an accident
resulted, the repair cost of which totalled $700. The employee was requested to assign
his accumulated superannuation contributions of $400 to help defray the repair expense.
The highest assessment recommended by the Safety Committee was $150.
As this was the first year of operation of the Safety Branch, there are no figures to
present by which a comparison might be made to determine the effectiveness of the
Safety Committee, but merely to show premium costs I quote hereunder:—
1951-52 1952-53
Vehicle insurance premiums  $61,808 $78,297
Claims paid on behalf of the Government....    29,480 25,417
Recovery on behalf of the Government      15,496
(1952-53 was the first year the Insurance and Safety Branch operated, and during
that time was successful in recovering $15,496 of the damage done to Government
vehicles.)
It was estimated that the premium for 1952-53 fiscal year would have totalled
$105,000, and this, no doubt, influenced the decision of the Government to introduce
the policy of self-insuring.
The pressure of other work did not permit as much time to be devoted to on-the-job
accidents as could be wished. However, membership was purchased in the National
Safety Council, and certain of its monthly publications were sent to each Divisional and
District Engineer and District Superintendent. The accident-prevention department of
the Workmen's Compensation Board expressed its appreciation to the Public Works
Department for taking the first tangible step toward the reducing of accidents, and
subsequently expressed further appreciation and pleasure at receiving full and willing
co-operation of our district officials in working with the field inspectors of the Workmen's
Compensation Board in an effort to prevent and reduce accidents which cost the Government several hundred thousand dollars each year. REPORT OF INSURANCE AND SAFETY BRANCH

low water.   However, no difficulty was experienced with ice-floes in the river.   Periodic
maintenance of landings and shear booms was carried out satisfactorily.
The Herrling Island Ferry boat was taken out of the water and recaulked and
repainted.   Cable towers were overhauled and timbers replaced where necessary.
Delta Electoral District
Reconstruction.—On the New McLellan Road from Johnston Road to King George
Highway, 1.5 miles were reconstructed.
Traffic islands and traffic lights were installed at the junction of the Trans-Canada
Highway and King George VI Highway and also at the junction of the Trans-Canada
Highway and Scott Road.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The following sections have been surfaced:—
Trans-Canada Highway:   Peterson Hill to Pattullo Bridge, 0.5 mile;   White-
house Corner, 0.3 mile; Whitehouse Corner easterly, 5.13 miles; in Lang-

Maintenance.—Bituminous patching, ditching, brushing, shouldering, and other
normal maintenance work were carried out satisfactorily throughout the year on all main
roads in the district.
Snow-removal.—An extremely mild winter was experienced in Delta District. There
was only one snow-storm of any consequence, which occurred in January. Some icing
conditions were encountered, particularly on Pattullo Bridge, but sanding crews had no
difficulty in keeping the main roads in a safe condition. A sand-bunker of approximately 150 cubic yards capacity was constructed on New McLellan Road 1 mile east
of the King George VI Highway.
Bridges.—A new 130-foot Howe-truss span was placed in Eburne Bridge No. 5.
The pile trestle structure at the south end of Eburne Bridge No. 5 was shortened by
approximately 600 feet and was replaced by a solid fill.
Ferries.—Ladner—Woodward Ferry was operated satisfactorily throughout the year.
Construction of a new landing at Woodward Landing was completed. On November
1st, 1952, operation of this ferry was taken over from the Acme Operating Company by
the Provincial Government. Maintenance costs at Ladner Landing were very high due
to scouring of the river bank and bottom, with the result that longer piles had to be driven
periodically to support the ferry-landing.
Public Works Garage, Cloverdale.—A new concrete floor was placed in the equipment-shed at Cloverdale. Floors are now concrete throughout. The main garage building was repainted. The Department's property adjoining Cloverdale garage was levelled
off and gravelled to form a storage-space for equipment and construction materials.

ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 3 (COLUMBIA, KAMLOOPS, REVELSTOKE,
SALMON ARM, AND YALE ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
(Divisional Engineer, L. E. Smith)
Columbia Electoral District
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance work was in progress on all travelled roads
in the district, and their condition was generally good.
Additional spring maintenance was experienced throughout the newly constructed
portion of the Trans-Canada Highway on the Golden-Leanchoil section, but traffic was
not interrupted.
. Minor improvements were completed on the Big Bend section of the Trans-Canada
Highway and also the Kootenay-Columbia Highway. In the case of the former, a portion
of road was widened through a rock-cut, sight distance was increased on some sharp
curves, and the general appearance was improved by carrying out extensive slope
trimming. In the case of the latter, drainage was improved through low-lying areas by
excavating 7- by 4-foot ditches, and approximately 4 miles of road were gravelled with
pit-run aggregate. General brushing of right-of-way and slope trimming was scheduled
along most of this route.
Frost conditions were not as troublesome in general as in the previous year, which
was partially a result of the minor improvements and partially through climatic conditions. However, some damage resulted to the section of pavement between the
Athalmer and Radium Junction on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway due to frost-boils,
and approximately 1,000 cubic yards of cold patch was laid through this area to complete
the necessary repairs.
Four miles of the No. 2 West Side Road was gravelled north of Wilmer, and approximately 6 miles of roadway was brushed where necessary. O 42 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1952-53
Construction.—A 7.25-mile portion of the Kicking Horse section of the Trans-
Canada Highway was constructed to Trans-Canada standards by contract, starting at the
west boundary of the Yoho National Park.
A total of 5.5 miles of road was reconstructed by district forces during the year
throughout the district, 3 miles of which was on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway.
Bridges.—One pile trestle bridge 146 feet long was completely reconstructed, two
were redecked, two were replaced with culvert and fill, and a temporary bridge was constructed to span a washout at Mile 73 on the Big Bend Highway. A programme of
general repairs and painting of bridges throughout the district was carried out. The two
steel-truss bridges, notably the Columbia Bridge at Boat Encampment and the Kicking
Horse River Bridge in Golden, were painted silver by contract.
Bituminous Surfacing.—A total of 5.6 miles of bituminous plant-mix pavement was
laid on the Kicking Horse Canyon section of the Trans-Canada Highway, starting at the
west Yoho Park boundary.
Two miles of pulvimix were laid on the Kootenay-Columbia Highway, starting at
Mile 13.5 south of Golden. One mile of road-mix asphalt was placed on the Kootenay-
Columbia Highway through Radium Junction, and 1 mile was placed on the Athalmer
Road by district forces.
Snow-removal.—A relatively mild winter was experienced, and all travelled roads
were kept open. The Big Bend section of the Trans-Canada Highway was officially
closed October 31st and remained closed until May 24th. Total recorded snowfall for
Golden was 84 inches, and a low temperature of 10 degrees below zero reported.
KAMLOOPS ELECTORAL DISTRICT
Maintenance.—Extensive maintenance work was carried out on the Trans-Canada
Highway, particularly pavement repair on the westerly portions of the highway in the
Kamloops District. Twenty-five per cent of the total district maintenance funds was
expended on this road, which covered painting of traffic protective works, weed-control,
right-of-way clean-up by raking and burning, shouldering, and signing.
Increased maintenance attention was given the Kamloops-Merritt Road and the
North Thompson Highway. Activities of the oil pipe-line construction companies
resulted in great increases of heavy loads over these roads. Despite the extra demands,
district crews kept a good travelling surface on these roads at all times. Six hundred and
ten miles of other roads in the district were maintained, culverts installed, and ditching
done where required.
Winter maintenance of roads generally in the district was lighter than in other
years. Snowfall was relatively light, but de-icing and ice-control were very extensively
carried out on practically all roads. Many favourable comments were received about
the service rendered during the winter.
Travelling conditions generally were improved over the previous year.
General Construction and Reconstruction.—Many minor projects were undertaken
during the year, involving general improvements by widening and gravel-surfacing of
secondary and feeder roads. Classified routes through the Village of North Kamloops,
the City of Kamloops, and Ashcroft were maintained on a share basis with the community concerned.
In major construction, 1.19 miles of the Kamloops-Tranquille Road were constructed on new location. Four miles of the Kamloops-Merritt Highway were constructed, partly on new location, to 36-foot subgrade standard. Other construction
works included a winter access road from Clearwater to East Black Pool, new access
road from Littlefort to Dunn Lake, improvement to Victoria Street West in the City of
Kamloops, improvements to Lingren Road, Powers Addition subdivision streets, Dead-
man-Vidette Hill, Heffley-Louis Creek Road, and the Agate Bay Road. DISTRICT REPORTS
O 43
Bridges.—One major bridge-construction project was completed. The Mad River
Bridge on the North Thompson Highway was constructed down-stream from the old
bridge-site on improved alignment. All other bridges in the district were kept in good
condition.
Ferries.—Routine maintenance work was carried out on all ferries in the district,
and no traffic tie-ups occurred during the year.
Revelstoke Electoral District
Maintenance and Minor Improvements.—Extensive gravelling with selected pit-run
materials was done on the Revelstoke-Sicamous and Big Bend sections of the Trans-
Canada Highway.
The 1952 spring break-up was the most severe in many years, and, as a result, the
Revelstoke-Arrowhead Road from Twelve Mile Ferry south was closed for a month.
The break-up, although earlier than usual, was much less severe in 1953, and a start was
made on a heavy gravelling programme on this road from Mile 14 to Mile 24.
Nearly all side-roads in the Sicamous-Malakwa area were widened and gravelled.
The completion of this work made it possible to use truck and grader snow-ploughs
exclusively, instead of bulldozers as before.
Construction.—The contract for new bridges on the Trans-Canada Highway at
Malakwa and Three Valley was let, and a start made on the clearing for the road
approaches.   The piers at Malakwa were completed.
A mile stretch of narrow road was widened between Sidmouth and Arrowhead, and
the road straightened.
Two miles of the narrowest road 3 miles south of Sicamous was widened and
realigned.   The heavy rock bluff 2 miles south was widened for 300 feet.
As much widening as practical with a D-8 was done on the Beaton-Trout Lake
Road. With the exception of short stretches in rock, this road is now a two-lane road
for the entire length.
The Camborne-Beaton Road was gravelled for 3 miles and many culverts placed.
Bridge Replacement by Culverts and Fills.—Ten bridges with an over-all length of
756 feet were replaced by culverts and fills during the year.
Bridges.—Two large bridges were completely redecked and repaired throughout—
the Eagle River Bridge at Malakwa on the McLean Sawmill Road and the Goldstream
Bridge at Mile 57 on the Big Bend Highway. An arch support was built under the Clan
William Overhead to the design of the Headquarters Bridge Office. In addition, repairs
were made to twenty-five other bridges throughout the district.
Ferries.—A new ferry-landing was built on the west bank of the Twenty-four Mile
Ferry at Sidmouth. This was over 400 feet in length and was built during the winter
months.
The unusually low water caused a great deal of trouble with bars and ice on this
ferry, and dredging and hydraulicking were necessary to maintain service. An extensive
dredging programme will be necessary at the next low water to prevent a recurrence of
this trouble.
The Federal Government completed a new dock at Beaton, which helped the subsidized Arrowhead-Beaton ferry service.
Snow Service.—The winter was somewhat less severe than average, but the need
for sanding was thereby increased, and much more of this work was done than ever
before.
The Beaton-Camborne and Beaton-Trout Lake-Ferguson Roads were kept open for
a daily school bus, run for the first time in history. This work was all done by hired
tractors. O 44 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1952-53
A small radio-telephone was installed at the watchman's shack at Three Valley Lake
to provide warnings of slides at this spot and speed the reopening of the road when heavy
equipment was needed.
Salmon Arm Electoral District
Maintenance.—All roads in the district were kept in good condition throughout the
year. A number of side-roads were ditched, widened, and gravelled, and old wooden
culverts have been replaced with metal pipe. Wherever possible we could acquire the
extra land, fences have been moved to a minimum of 33 feet from the centre of the travelled roadway.   As usual, a number of farmers worked out taxes on side-roads and trails.
Reconstruction.—The Kamloops-Vernon Highway for 4.43 miles south of Schweb's
Bridge, which commenced in 1951, was 100 per cent completed.
The Trans-Canada Highway, Salmon River to Canoe Creek (5.2 miles) and Salmon
River to 2 miles west, was realigned and constructed to the Department's standard. This
work was undertaken by two separate contracts, which commenced in the spring of
1951 and was 100 per cent completed last year. On the Salmon Arm-Vernon Highway,
Mile 1.0 to Mile 2.0 (1 mile) was realigned and constructed by our own forces and was
100 per cent completed.
Bridges.—Satisfactory maintenance on all bridges was carried out in the district.
Three pile-trestle bridges on side-roads were renewed. Schweb's Bridge, 169 feet in
length, over the Salmon River on the Kamloops-Vernon Highway, was rebuilt on new
alignment and grade, with two 40-foot steel-girder spans on creosoted pile piers and
bents. The work was undertaken and completed by our own district bridge crew. One
bridge was replaced by a metal culvert and fill.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Following is the surfacing done in the district:—
Kamloops-Vernon Highway:   3.5 miles, hot plant mix.

Five hundred and forty-nine cubic yards of asphaltic plant mix was stored for
district maintenance repairs.
Snow-removal.—The average total snowfall for the district, which commenced
December 15th and ended February 15th, was 45 inches.   All roads were kept open.
Ferries.—Ferry service between Sorrento and Scotch Creek operated satisfactorily
during the year.   No ice conditions were experienced on the lake.
Yale Electoral District
Maintenance.—With slight spring frost damage, maintenance work was permitted to
progress considerably, especially in the Fraser Canyon, where five carloads of asphalt
were mixed to improve faulty sections of old pavement.
New standard signs with long posts were installed on all main highways. Brushing
and culvert installation and replacement progressed.
Major Reconstruction and Improvements.—Reconstruction was completed on the
1.33 miles of heavy rock work north of Yale to Bell Crossing. South of this section,
toward Yale, a huge rock-slide area near the tunnel-mouth was completed by bulldozers
to a stable slope.
From American Creek to Gordon Creek near Yale the Trans-Canada Highway was
reconstructed.
From the Hells Gate tunnels to the Alexandra Lodge east section, 2.63 miles of
widening and realigning were completed. DISTRICT REPORTS O 45
Relocation surveys were made from Lytton to Spences Bridge and at points in the
Fraser Canyon.
Widening and gravelling were carried out on the Chaumox, Othello, and Lindgren
Roads. Work was done on slide-removal and storm-damage repairs on the Trans-Canada
Highway.
Hamilton Hill on the Merritt-Princeton Road was improved at several corners.
The Merritt-Princeton Road was reconstructed from Mile 41.5 to Mile 43.9, and
a crushed-gravel base laid. The heavy rock section from Mile 72 to Mile 74.7 was
reconstructed.
The Merritt-Nicola section, Mile 0 to Mile 7, of the Merritt-Kamloops Road was
completed to a high standard, and crushed gravel was laid prior to paving. Relocation of

From Lytton to Cisco Lodge, 0.5 mile of sags was recapped. In the China Bar
section, 2.1 miles of plant-mix pavement recap were laid on the badly worn old pavement.
Completed in the summer of 1953, but still under the 1952-53 contract, were the
following sections of the Trans-Canada Highway: Alexandra Lodge (0.97 mile), Alexandra Lodge extension (2.63 miles), and the Tunnel Bridge section north of Yale (0.75
mile).
Bridges.—New concrete piers were constructed to replace the rotted piling of the
Coquihalla River Bridge.   Seven bridges were redecked, and several were repainted.
Leith Bridge at Douglas Lake was replaced when broken by a heavy load. Emory
Bridge was replaced by a steel and concrete bridge. Six bridges were replaced by culvert
and fill construction.
Constant inspection and immediate repairs were necessary when increasing loads in
the spring of 1953 greatly increased damage to the old Fraser Canyon bridges.
Ferries.—Service of the North Bend Aerial Ferry was interrupted for a total of six
and one-half days to install the new electric hoist, change haulage cables, and perform
minor repairs. During the twelve months, 16,716 vehicles and 46,545 passengers

ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 5 (CRANBROOK AND FERNIE
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
(District Engineer, J. A. Dennison)
Cranbrook Electoral District
Reconstruction.—A project was undertaken to reconstruct 3.5 miles of the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway, starting approximately 9 miles west of Cranbrook and
running west. The project was 75 per cent completed at the end of the fiscal year.
This project was worked in conjunction with the construction of a bridge to replace old
Bridges Nos. 12 and 13.   The project started in the previous year was also finished.
A bridge approach of approximately 0.5 mile was started at Kingsgate. This was
approximately 50 per cent complete at the end of the year.
Three-quarters of a mile of the Black Bear Road was reconstructed. This road
serves the new fertilizer plant of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company.
Maintenance.—Frost-action during the spring of 1952 was moderate on the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway from Cranbrook to Kingsgate, but the Rampart section of the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway from Cranbrook to Wardner suffered badly. Several
sections, aggregating 2,000 feet, of this were excavated to a depth of 4 feet and backfilled with pit-run gravel. All sections of black-top which were broken by frost-action
were repaired with prepared mix. Approximately 4,500 cubic yards of this material
were used throughout the district. DISTRICT REPORTS O 49
A major ditching operation was carried out on most side-roads, both in the Cranbrook District and that section of the Fernie District maintained by Cranbrook forces.
A major gravelling project was carried out in the Kootenay orchards, Cranbrook

southerly for 1 mile, was widened and raised to prevent flooding during the spring run-off.
Major Reconstruction and Improvements.—The contract for the reconstruction of
the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway from Fernie westerly for a distance of 5 miles
was completed. A contract for the construction of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway from the westerly end of last year's contract to the tunnel, a distance of 6 miles, was
awarded, and was 75 per cent completed at the end of the fiscal year.
The Southern Trans-Provincial Highway easterly of Hosmer was constructed to
standard width by Departmental forces for 3.2 miles.
Bituminous Surfacing.—The 3.2 miles of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway
which was constructed by Departmental forces was paved, as was 2.2 miles of the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway west of Fernie.
Twelve miles of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway from Crowsnest west was
recapped to a width of 20 and 22 feet.
Bridges.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all bridges throughout the district
during the past year.
Hartley Creek Bridge, on the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Fernie,
was replaced with a type " C " multiplate arch culvert and fill.
Many small bridges on side-roads were eliminated and replaced with culverts
and fill.
Snow-removal.—A very mild winter was experienced, with light snowfall, and all
roads were kept open, with no major tie-ups to traffic.
River-protection Work.—Considerable river-protection work was done in the Elk
River at Fernie and Hosmer in the fall, and no flood damage was recorded during the
spring run-off. O 50 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1952-53

ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 6  (KASLO-SLOCAN, NELSON-CRESTON,
AND ROSSLAND-TRAIL ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
(Divisional Engineer, H. T. Miard)
Kaslo-Slocan Electoral District
General.—The highways in the Kaslo-Slocan District were kept in good condition
throughout the year, although grader maintenance through the summer was made difficult due to extended dry periods. Average difficulties were experienced during the spring
break-up and late fall rainy period with minor slides and some drainage trouble, but
there was no disruption in service to the public.
Major Programme.—This programme consisted of the following:—
Gravelling Project, Kaslo: Department's pioneer crushing plant was set up in Kaslo
City pit, crushing 1-inch minus material; 16,885 cubic yards of gravel were produced and
placed on the Nelson-Kaslo Highway for a distance of 12.5 miles from Ainsworth to
Kaslo, including the arterial highway through City of Kaslo.
Gravelling Project, Slocan-Arrow Lakes Highway: The district crushing plant was
set up at the gravel-pit at the north end of Slocan Lake, producing 1-inch minus material.
Total yardage produced was 17,475 cubic yards, and 17.6 miles from 3 miles north of
Rosebery to Box Lake were gravelled, also spot gravelling between Box Lake and Nakusp.
New Denver-Three Forks Project: Total distance of the project was 5.5 miles.
Finished to March 31st, 1953, were 5.3 miles, including bridge across Kane Creek.
A good temporary detour was constructed in late October, 1952, to enable using new
route and close old road. Construction on final 0.2 miles was started in mid-April, 1953,
including bridge across Seaton Creek.   Project will be completed by mid-June, 1953.
Dust-laying Operations: Calcium chloride was placed between New Denver and
Silverton for 2 miles, also through Passmore, Vallican, Winlaw, Appledale, Perry's, Rosebery, Brouse, Arrow Park, Burton, Fauquier, Needles, and Edgewood, in varying applications from 1,000 feet to one-quarter of a mile. Solid application was placed on arterial
highway through City of Kaslo to south boundary of Mirror Lake, approximately 5 miles,
also through Fletcher Creek flats, Woodbury Creek, Kootenay-Florence Mine area, Ainsworth, and Coffee Creek sections, an additional distance of approximately 4 miles.
Bridges.—A new bridge across Kane Creek was constructed; also a bridge crew was
kept busy on general maintenance with replacements of decks, ties, stringers, railings, etc.,
on a number of bridges throughout the district.
Rocky Bridge on the Monashee section of Highway No. 6 was replaced with 24-inch
steel culvert and fill; also, south section of double bridge just north of Slocan City was
replaced by concrete retaining-wall and back-fill.
Ferries.—Ferries at Needles-Fauquier and Arrow Park East and West were kept in
operation without interruption or delays, excepting for necessary changing of cables and
motor assemblies.   Hulls of barges were kept in excellent repair and appearance.
Snow-removal.—Snow-removal equipment was kept busy from December to March.
Due to the mild winter with continual wet snowfalls, more than twice the normal amount
of sanding was necessary in order to provide safe travelling conditions. Owing to
improved equipment and less severe weather, hiring of outside equipment was greatly
reduced. No slides hampered traffic. Ploughs travelled 17,180.5 miles, and 375.4 miles
of road were kept open. DISTRICT REPORTS

Flood Protection.—Some channel diversion and clearing of debris was carried out
on the Goat River channel at Creston, up-stream from the Creston-Porthill Bridge No. 1.
Bridges.—Work commenced by contract in the building of a 60-foot steel-beam
bridge with concrete deck across Erie Creek at Erie on the reconstructed portion of the
Salmo-Trail Highway (Route 3a). This project was approximately 90 per cent complete at March 31st. Work also commenced by contract on an overhead crossing of the
Great Northern Railway approximately 1.5 miles west of Erie on the same highway.
This structure is 195 feet over-all length, with a 26-feet-wide roadway of creosoted pile-
trestle construction with a laminated creosoted timber deck to be surfaced with asphalt

During the season the following roads were paved with hot plant mix: Castlegar-
Trail Highway, 10.5 miles; Trail-Salmo Highway, Fruitvale to Ross Spur, 5.9 miles.
Other paving in the district was repaired and kept in good condition.
Maintenance of Roads.—All roads were maintained during the year, and considerable gravelling was done on the following roads:   Rossland-Cascade section of Southern O 54 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1952-53
Trans-Provincial Highway No. 3, 6 miles; Casino Road, 2 miles; Columbia Gardens-
Fruitvale Road, 4 miles;  Fruitvale side-roads, 2 miles.
Oiling.—Four miles of the Robson-Syringa Creek Road were oiled with bunker
" C " fuel-oil.   Some oiling was also done around Warfield and Annable.
Castlegar Ferry.—The Castlegar Ferry was maintained and continued to give good
service throughout the year.   Both the ferry and the ferry building were repainted.
Bridges.—All bridges were maintained and some repainted. Hannah Creek and
China Creek Bridges were widened to 22 feet. The ties, deck, and hand-rails on Wellington Street Bridge were renewed.
The following bridges were replaced by culvert and fill: No. 7 Bridge on Rossland-
Cascade Road, Southern Trans-Provincial Highway No. 3; No. 23 Bridge on Deschamps
Road; No. 47 Bridge on Robson-Syringa Creek Road; No. 46 Bridge on Robson West
Road; No. 39 Bridge on Trail-Pend d'Oreille Road.
The Columbia River Bridge in Trail was painted by the Pacific Coast Painting
Company with aluminium paint. Lights were installed on this bridge by the West
Kootenay Power & Light Company Limited.
Piling was completed for the new bridge at Fruitvale.
Snow-removal.—Snow conditions were better than in previous years. All roads
were kept ploughed, and a great deal of sanding was done on the hills.
The Rossland-Cascade section of Southern Trans-Provincial Highway No. 3 was
closed for approximately three days in January.
Shop and Garage.—Further improvements were made to the shop and garage. A
new concrete-block oil-house was built, and the exterior and interior of the shop and
garage were painted.
The rapid development of building throughout the district resulted in the incorporation of two new municipalities—Fruitvale and Warfield.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 7  (CARIBOO AND LILLOOET
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
(Divisional Engineer, C. D. Grigg)
Cariboo Electoral District (South)
Highway Maintenance and Reconstruction.—All roads in South Cariboo District
suffered considerably due.to continuous heavy rains in early summer, and difficulty was
experienced in maintaining.
Realignment and grade improvements with gravelling were carried out on the Kelly
Lake-Canoe Creek, North Bonaparte-Bridge Lake, Horsefly, Felker, Peavine, Hanceville
Cut-off, Fawn, and Mile 100-Roe Lake Roads. One section of the Empire Valley Road
above the Fraser River was sliding on a lubricated stratum of clay. The roadway was
cut in under the clay to correct this situation.
New Construction.—An additional 4 miles of completed subgrade was built on the
Williams Lake-Mile 170 Road (Project No. 242), and 5.2 miles were gravelled. Total
subgrade completed on the project to date is 7.7 miles, leaving some 8.3 miles to build.
The project is roughly 60 per cent completed.
The School Bus Road was completed, giving a 3-mile link between the Mile 100-
Roe Lake and the Mile 93-Bridge Lake Roads.
Bridges.—The stiffening-trusses on the Churn Creek Suspension and the Chilcotin
Suspension Bridges were renewed by General Construction Company under contract.
A six-man bridge crew was kept busy throughout the season on miscellaneous
repairs and maintenance.
Numerous bridges were replaced, and culvert pipe purchased for the elimination of
a number of others. DISTRICT REPORTS O 55
The Horsefly Road has had all bridges removed therefrom.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was particularly light, with practically no ploughing required prior to the new year. Subsequent snows were easily handled, and all roads were
kept open.
Cariboo Electoral District (North)
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all the important roads.
During the early part of the year, maintenance was hampered by an exceptionally severe
spring break-up and a period of heavy run-off which washed out several sections of road.
The situation was also aggravated by the fact that considerable grader time was required
for the improvement programme on the Cariboo Highway and Fraser Road. However,
once the washouts were repaired and the roads were graded up properly, they were kept
in fairly good condition for the remainder of the year. Considerable attention was given
to the replacement of broken culverts on side-roads, and a fairly heavy gravelling programme was carried out in general. Exclusive of projects on the Cariboo Highway and
Fraser Road, improvement work was done on approximately 40 miles of road, most of
this being regravelled. Two small diversions were also constructed and gravelled, totaling
0.6 mile.
Projects.—The Cariboo Highway was improved and (or) gravelled 29 miles between
Macalister and Quesnel. Several miles were widened to standard highway width. North
of Quesnel gravelling for pulvimix was completed on 4.9 miles, including 0.6 mile of
the Barkerville Road.
On the Fraser Road, 5.2 miles were completely reconstructed and gravelled, approximately 3 miles ditched and gravelled, and 1.6 miles partly cleared for future construction.
Paving.—A distance of 4.4 miles on the Cariboo Highway immediately north of
Quesnel and 0.6 mile on the Barkerville Road, from the Cariboo Highway to the airport,
were pulvimixed with MC2.
Bridges.—Three small bridges and three large culverts were built by the bridge crew.
Major repairs to the Quesnel River Bridge, Cariboo Highway, and important repairs to
twelve other bridges were carried out.
Ferries.—The three reaction ferries were repaired and launched in the spring and
operated until late fall, when they were pulled out of the water. Hand-cages, carrying
passengers only, were used throughout the winter. Ice bridges were made at Macalister
and Gravelle, which carried traffic (mostly foot traffic) for part of this time. Maintenance and repairs were done by the bridge crew.
At Macalister both landings were renewed, two floating approaches were constructed
by the bridge crew to replace the old ones, the two wooden pontoons were replaced by
steel ones from the abandoned Fort Fraser Ferry, and a new row-boat was placed on
the ferry.
At Soda Creek the east landing was renewed, a new row-boat placed on the ferry,
and a barn built to accommodate six horses.
At Gravelle the main repairs carried out were on both pontoons, and a new row-boat
was placed on the ferry.
Buildings.—The Department bridge crew completed a two-bay equipment-shed at
Wells and built a new one-bay equipment-shed at Soda Creek.
Snow-removal.—In general, snow-ploughing was less difficult than last year owing
to a much lighter snowfall, but a more intensive sanding programme was carried out on
the main hills of the Cariboo Highway.
In the Wells-Barkerville area, although the total snowfall was less than last year, it
thawed less quickly, with the result that by the end of March there was almost as much
snow remaining as last year; that is, 41 inches on the level. The crew spent considerable
time in March widening the travelled portion of the main road with bulldozer in order
to minimize the effect of the spring break-up.  DISTRICT REPORTS
O 57
Lillooet Electoral District
Maintenance and Minor Betterments of Roads.—Roads and trails were maintained
throughout the district by six road crews.
The Trans-Canada and Cariboo Highways were maintained by surface patching,
minor ditching, brushing, and limited weed-control. Gravel and dirt roads were generally
rough because of lack of rain for binding during summer and fall seasons.
Minor betterments were carried out by day-labour on the following roads: Bridge
River, North Bonaparte, Lytton-Lillooet, Lillooet-Pavilion, Marble Canyon, Pemberton
Portage, and Texas Creek.
Logging companies operating on the Squamish Valley and Botanie Roads completed
worth-while improvements to the public roads with their own equipment.
Major Reconstruction.—Construction of the Trans-Canada Highway project at
Martel, Mile 268.5 to Mile 275.44, was carried on to 85 per cent completion by contract
to Emil Anderson and General Construction Companies.
In co-operation with the P.F.R.A., the Department constructed, by day-labour, 2.2
miles of standard road from the Pemberton Portage Road, of which 50 per cent was
completed.
Bridges.—Three new bridges were constructed on relocated roads, as follows:
Pioneer 40-foot King truss, North Arm of Lillooet River thirteen-bay trestle, and P.F.R.A.
ditch three-bay trestle.   Normal maintenance of several bridges was carried out.
Ferries.—Three ferries were operated during the year. The two reaction pontoon
ferries at Big Bar and High Bar gave difficulties because of rotting hulls and resulting
leakage.   The very low traffic returns on Lillooet ferries did not substantially increase.
Snow-removal.—The seasonal snowfall was near average, but one heavy storm along
the Fraser River Canyon blocked affected roads for several days in January.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 8  (ATLIN, PRINCE RUPERT,
AND SKEENA ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
(Division Engineer, W. R. Meighen)
Atlin Electoral District
South Atlin
Roads.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads in the area. The blacktop surface of the Stewart-Hyder Road was patched.
Extensive gravelling was carried out on the Bear River Road in order to strengthen
the road-bed due to the greatly increased traffic in the area.
Bridges. — The following bridges were reconstructed: Stewart-Hyder No. 1 on
Stewart-Hyder Road, Stewart-Hyder No. 3 on Stewart-Hyder Road, Fletcher Creek on
Salmon River Road, Keystone No. 2 on American Creek Road, Cobalt on Big Missouri
Road, Cascade No. 2 on Big Missouri Road, and Silver Lake on Big Missouri Road.
The following bridges were replaced by culverts and fills: Switch Back on Big
Missouri Road, Halfway on Big Missouri Road, Log on Big Missouri Road, Log on
Stewart Arterial (72r), Log No. 2 on Bear River Road, and Mosquito No. 2 on Bear
River Road.
A further seven small bridges under 20 feet in length were replaced by culvert and
fill on the Big Missouri Road.
Stewart Wing Dam.—Extensive reinforcement was carried out to strengthen this wing
dam.   This project was successfully completed.
Snow-removal.—A winter snowfall of about 35 feet was dealt with successfully, and
the roads of major importance were kept open. O 58 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1952-53
Stikine
Roads.—General maintenance was carried out on Dease Lake Road and Glenora
Road, together with brushing of foot-trails where necessary.
Bridges Reconstructed.—A new South Fork Bridge was constructed approximately
500 feet up-stream from the old structure, which went out during a flood.
North Atlin
Roads.—General maintenance was carried out on the Atlin Highway. Various soft
areas were gravelled.   All other roads in the area were maintained.
The glacier problem on the Atlin Highway was again successfully controlled, and the
highway kept open.
Bridges Reconstructed.—Birch Creek Bridge and Surprise Lake Dam on Surprise
Lake Road were reconstructed.
Surprise Lake Diversion.—This project was successfully completed and is a great
improvement in alignment, also avoiding the glaciers.
Prince Rupert Electoral District
Roads. — Considerable improvement was made in the condition of many roads
within the district as a result of projects undertaken and completed during the past year.
The largest single project was let out to contract and involved the reconstruction of a
1-mile section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway located 9 miles east of Prince
Rupert. Between Tyee and the Skeena boundary, narrow portions of this same highway
were widened over a 5-mile distance, also by contract. Crushed-gravel surfacing was
applied by district forces over approximately 10 miles of this highway, following completion of the above contracts.
On the Queen Charlotte Islands considerable improvement was made to the Queen
Charlotte City-Skidegate Road by the blasting of rock points and widening of corners.
This road was also extended southerly approximately 0.5 mile to the new school-site. Two
small bridges were replaced by culvert and fill. In the Masset area Departmental crews
did considerable clearing and gravelling of streets as well as continuing with the replacement of the plank road to Tow Hill with gravel, approximately 2 miles being completed
during the year.
Bridges.—Hiellen Bridge No. 7 on the Masset-Tow Hill Road was reconstructed, as
were two bridges at Oona River and one at Jap Inlet on Porcher Island. Other bridges
in the Prince Rupert area were kept in good repair.
Wharves.—The main loading section of the Prince Rupert wharf was renewed, using
heavier stringers and new decking. Alterations in Shed No. 5 were made, and a new
floor installed.
Snow-removal.—A relatively light snowfall in Prince Rupert District presented no
major difficulties during the past winter, and all roads in the district were kept open
successfully.
Skeena Electoral District (West)
Roads.—The Northern Trans-Provincial Highway through this district was much
improved as a result of several day-labour projects carried to completion during the year.
Notable amongst these was the surfacing with 3A -inch crushed gravel of the approximately
85-mile gravel portion of the above highway between Terrace and Prince Rupert. Some
widening of narrow portions of this highway along the river was also undertaken. From
Terrace easterly, 2 miles of reconstruction were undertaken and completed, and six
bridges were eliminated by culvert and fill.
Other roads were maintained satisfactorily, with several minor improvements being
made, most notable being the elimination of Spring Creek Bridge No. 1 by culvert and
fill on the Kalum Lake Road.   Considerable development in the Terrace area as a result district reports

of the Kitimat project led to a large amount of private subdividing, with the result that
several miles of new road were built privately and, when approved, reverted to the district.
Bridges.—Largest bridge project in the district during the year was the rebuilding of
the timber portions of the Copper River Suspension Bridge by contract. A large programme of redecking and other maintenance was carried out by district forces, particularly on the large number of timber bridges between Terrace and Prince Rupert. These
bridges were all built during the year 1943 as a defence project, with the result that deck
failure was more or less uniform on all structures.
Snow-removal.—A comparatively light snowfall in this district during the winter
presented little difficulty in its removal. All roads were kept open successfully, including
the Terrace-Prince Rupert section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, which in
normal winters is closed for periods of several weeks' duration by slides.
■ Shop and Garage.—A new garage and equipment-shed were built in Terrace on a
site purchased the previous year, with possession being taken in December. Facilities are
a very great improvement over the previous quarters.
Skeena Electoral District (East)
Maintenance.—General maintenance was carried out on all roads in the district.
This consisted of grading, gravelling, brushing, ditching, and renewal of culverts. Considerable gravel was placed on the Babine Lake Road, Hudson Bay Mountain Road,
Kitwanga Valley Road, and on about 10 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway,
mainly in the vicinity of Hazelton.
Construction.—The east approach to the Smithers Bridge was completed. A
0.8-mile revision was completed at Mile 19, eliminating a narrow, winding piece of road.
The highway from New Hazelton to South Hazelton was widened and realigned.
The Babine Lake Road was pushed through from Chapman Lake to Babine Lake,
a distance of nearly 20 miles. The right-of-way for 10 miles on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway near Moricetown was cleared and widened.
Five bridges on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway were replaced by culverts
and fills, and one on the Telkwa High Road.
Bridges.—General maintenance was carried out on bridges throughout the district.
A new 50-foot King truss was built at Canyon Creek, and several small bridges were
rebuilt.
Ferries.—All ferries operated satisfactorily, and general maintenance was carried out.
Snow-removal.—All roads in the district were kept open. The snowfall was comparatively light, but more sanding than usual was required.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No. 9  (FORT GEORGE AND OMINECA
ELECTORAL DISTRICTS)
(Divisional Engineer, D. D. Godfrey)
Fort George Electoral District
Maintenance.—When the district took over the maintenance of the John Hart Highway to Pine Pass in July, the total amount of maintenance work was increased considerably.   A camp was established 90 miles north of Prince George for the purpose.
Frost-boils were less troublesome than in previous years, and planking was required
only in the vicinity of Willow River on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway.
Grading became more of a problem on all roads because of the heavy truck traffic
associated with the 600 mills in the district.
A very heavy gravel programme was carried out, since 28 miles of the Cariboo Highway had to be gravelled in preparation for a pulvimix treatment in addition to the normal
gravelling programme for the district.
) DISTRICT REPORTS O 61
Reconstruction.—On the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway the following portions
were reconstructed to highway standards: 2 miles near Swede Creek, where drainage had
been a problem; 1 mile near Bednesti Lake, which had been commenced in 1951; 2Vz
miles at the west approach to Prince George; 1 mile east of McBride, where the alignment had been poor.
On the Cariboo Highway a 26,000-yard fill was made and a multiplate culvert
installed at Tabor Creek, thus eliminating an old wooden bridge and improving the alignment of the highway. Farther south, culverts and fills were made to eliminate bridges
near Stone Creek and at Camp Creek, and a mile of twisting road near Red Rock was
rebuilt.
A 1-mile portion of the McBride-Cariboo Road susceptible to serious snow-drifting
was reconstructed near Lamming Mills.
Bridges.—The south side of the 2,500-foot Fraser River Bridge at Prince George
was redecked, using creosoted laminated decking with a 2-inch asphaltic concrete cap.
Bridges were eliminated with culverts and fills at Red Rock, Camp Creek, Josephine
Creek, and Tabor Creek, and the bridge over Red Rock Creek on the Cariboo Road was
completely rebuilt.
Ferries.—The closing of the Kenney Dam on the Nechako River prevented the Isle
Pierre Ferry from operating for two weeks until the ramps could be extended to the new
water-level, otherwise the operation of ferries was routine.
Surfacing.—A Departmental pulvimix crew prepared a base course on 6 miles of
roads adjacent to Prince George and 27 miles on the Cariboo Highway.
Snow-removal.—Snow did not fall until late in 1952; consequently, the amount of
ploughing was less than in previous years, and, moreover, drifting was almost non-existent.
Omineca Electoral District (East)
Roads.—General maintenance of all public roads was carried out throughout the
district in the usual manner. Extremely dry periods made it difficult to maintain the roads
in satisfactory condition. On the other hand, such dry weather was ideal for construction
work, and considerable new construction and reconstruction were carried out.
Reconstruction work was undertaken at several points on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway. Immediately west of Endako 1 mile was reconstructed, making an
8-mile section which is now up to a fairly good standard. A pulvimix asphalt treatment
was given this section immediately following reconstruction, and, as a result, the road has
remained in good condition throughout the year.
East of Vanderhoof 8V2 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway were
reconstructed to standard 36-foot-top highway. This section was also given a very heavy
application of gravel during the year.
Two miles were reconstructed on the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road. Metal culverts
were installed in all of these jobs.
Plant-mix pavement was laid on 1.6 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Arterial
Highway in Vanderhoof, as well as 1.1 miles through Vanderhoof on Burrard Avenue,
and also on 15.7 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway east of Vanderhoof.
Bridges.—No major bridge work was carried out during the year. Five small bridges
were renewed, fourteen were repaired, and materials for repairs were puchased and
delivered to site for five others.   Several small bridges were replaced with culverts and fills.
Ferries.—The Fort Fraser Ferry service was discontinued in the fall due to the reduction in flow of the Nechako River, which has been diverted to flow westerly by the
Aluminum Company of Canada.
The Hulatt Boat Ferry Service was continued as usual.
Snow-removal.—A light snowfall was experienced during the winter. However, it
became necessary to plough the road to Germansen Landing and to Bralorne Mines at O 62 PUBLIC WORKS REPORT,  1952-53
Silver Creek. This required the use of heavy equipment, as from 4 to 6 feet of snow was
encountered on the entire route of 183 miles. In all, 571 miles of road were ploughed
during the season at a total cost of $39,481, or an average cost of $69.14 per mile.
Omineca Electoral District (West)
Maintenance.—Maintenance was satisfactorily carried out in the district. Traffic
continues to increase in amount and weight.
Reconstruction.—All projects undertaken were completed. West of Burns Lake
1.7 miles of road were brought to full standard. East and west of Telkwa 2.5 miles
were also standardized. Two narrow rock-cuts on Highway No. 16 west of Perow were
widened, thus eliminating a dangerous condition. A large fill was put in with 120-foot
culvert on the Burns Lake-Babine Road, eliminating the " Devils Corner," which was
the worst on that road. Burns Lake Trestle No. 2, which passed over muskeg and was
a one-way traffic bridge approximately 900 feet long with no through visibility, was
replaced with a 200,000-yard fill with 40-foot top, which eliminated a serious bottleneck.
Approximately 90 miles of road were ditched and gravelled, and 250 culverts installed
to provide much needed drainage.
Bridges.—Buck River Bridge was replaced with culvert and fill. Six new bridges
were built. Maintenance and major repairs to other bridges were also carried out in a
satisfactory mamier.
Ferries.—A new wharf was completed at Southbank for H.M.V. "Jacob Henkel."
The engines were completely overhauled, and many other minor repairs, along with complete repainting, were carried out.
Snow-removal.—Snowfall was about average or slightly below average during the
winter.   All main roads were kept open in a satisfactory manner.
ENGINEERING DISTRICT No.  10  (PEACE RIVER
ELECTORAL DISTRICT)
(Divisional Engineer, O. W. H. Roberts)
Maintenance.—Roads throughout the district were maintained as satisfactorily as
possible with the machinery available. Side-roads were maintained in general, using
farmers' machines working out taxes.
Old wooden culverts were replaced with corrugated iron pipe on some main roads,
and numerous wooden culverts were replaced on farm and settlement roads. Minor
reconstruction was also carried out on several of the latter.
From East Pine to Mile 202.2 on the John Hart Highway, 11.2 miles, brushing and
minor betterments were carried out, and a light lift of gravel put down. This greatly
improved travel through a length of road which was very difficult to maintain in adverse
weather.
Reconstruction (Day-labour Projects).—Two miles were reconstructed on the
Montney Hill, Fort St. John-Upper Pine Road, to improve the grades and alignment.
This was subsequently gravelled.
One and a half miles on the east side of the Beatton River Hill, Fort St. John-
Alberta Boundary Road, were realigned and grades improved.
Road No. 1, Alberta Boundary-Dawson Creek, was reconstructed and gravelled,
with grade improvement and widening in preparation for paving between Dawson Creek
and Pouce Coupe.
Three miles of existing road were regraded, and 10 miles of new road constructed
from Clayhurst to the Fort St. John-Alberta Boundary Road. This new road provides
an outlet for the Clayhurst area when the ferry is unable to run. district reports
O 63
The new trail cleared from Little Prairie to the old Moberly Lake Road, 9.5 miles,
was improved to the extent of the funds allotted. This provided a better winter outlet
for the settlers of Moberly Lake than the old road.
Construction.—On the John Hart Highway between Arras and Progress, 7.2 miles
started by contract in 1951 were completed and taken over.
Construction under contract of the John Hart Highway in Fort George District was
completed, and this highway carried considerable traffic after the unofficial opening.
A contract was let for the 10.3 miles from Mile 191.9 to Mile 202.2, which includes
the Wabi Hill, on the John Hart Highway. This was completed, except for gravelling,
and the new alignment and grades made a considerable improvement in winter travelling
conditions over this section.
Bridges.—New decks and, in some cases, new stringers were put in on eleven bridges.
Two bridges were dismantled and abandoned. Five bridges were dismantled in connection with replacements by corrugated iron pipe or new structures. Major repairs were
carried out to the Beatton River Bridge and the Rolston Bridge, both of which were
badly damaged by ice in the break-up. Diverse repairs were carried out to twenty-three
other bridges, and minor repairs to several more.
Eight bridges were replaced by culverts and fills, and corrugated iron pipe purchased for the replacement of ten bridges. The latter could not be replaced due to
adverse weather, and will be replaced in 1953-54.
Two bridges—the O'Brien and Hospital—were replaced with new structures on
new sites.
Ferries.—The Hudson Hope and Clayhurst Ferries operated successfully during
the period that the Peace River was free of ice. Settlement north of the Clayhurst Ferry
caused a marked increase in the use of the Clayhurst Ferry, and this was run double shift
from July to October.
Snow-removal.—There was very little snow until well on in December, and snow
conditions were easier than in normal years. This was offset by the opening of the John
Hart Highway, this road being kept open for the first time. Fortunately, an easier winter
was experienced for the first season's snow-removal, and the road was only closed once
for a period of twenty-four hours.

5 a REPORT OF DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER
O 91
REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER
The following pages, covering the financial report of this Department, indicate that
the volume of expenditures continues to steadily increase.
On November 1st, 1952, the charter held by the Acme Operating Company, covering the operation of the Ladner-Woodward Ferry, expired and was not renewed. The
Department took over the operation of this ferry and, when doing so, instituted a new
system of ferry revenue collection. Instead of the purser receipt system commonly used
on all ferries, a " tear-off " system was adopted, which resulted in quicker collections and
obviated a very substantial portion of the work required for auditing purposes with regard
to related records. If this system proves satisfactory, it is intended to extend it progressively to other ferries operated by this Department.
It is gratifying to note that the annual inspection of district offices by our Office
Inspector is proving its worth, and, as a result, the standardization of accounting procedures within the various district offices is progressing satisfactorily. This annual inspection is resulting in a closer liaison between headquarters and the district offices, which is
of prime importance.
