REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, B.C., October 20th, 1960.
The Honourable P. A. Gaglardi,
Minister of Highways, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Herewith is submitted for your consideration a report of the activities
of the Department for the fiscal year 1959/60.
The total length of roads constructed or reconstructed by contract was 125.92
miles, and 55.32 miles of this were on the Trans-Canada Highway.
The total mileage constructed or reconstructed by day-labour was 172.82.
The mileage of improvements and minor betterments was 421.68.
A considerable amount of paving was done during the year, there being laid
203.47 miles of bituminous plant-mix pavement and 119.15 miles of road-mix
pavement.
Twenty-two bridges were completed, and work is in progress on thirty others.
Eight of the completed bridges and sixteen of the incompleted are on the Trans-
Canada Highway.
Final highway-location surveys completed totalled 304.29 miles, and the total
length of office design completed with estimates amounted to 156.75 miles.
There were fifty-two ferries operating under the supervision of the Department.
The number of vehicles carried was 1,684,674, and the number of passengers,
including drivers, was 4,372,159.
The total mileage of highways under the jurisdiction of the Department is
22,871. This is comprised of 3,740 miles of trunk highways, 1,644 miles of main
highways, and 17,487 miles of other roads. In addition to these, there are 673
miles classified as either arterial or secondary within municipal boundaries.
The expenditure on maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries amounted
to $15,314,230.27. The cost of snow-removal, which is included in the above
amount, was $2,074,645.76, there being 18,904.55 miles of road kept open during
the winter months.
During the calendar year 1959 there were 2,819 subdivisions handled by the
Department, and 632 of these were adjacent to controlled access highways. There
were issued 420 permits for entrances on controlled access highways and 686 permits for entrances on non-controlled access highways. A total of 1,628 permits
was issued for other works on Crown lands.
In conclusion, I may say that a satisfactory year's work has been accomplished,
and I wish to record the efficiency, dependability, and loyalty of our staff, both at
headquarters and in the field.

REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
Twenty-two bridges were completed during the fiscal year, eight of which are
on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Construction of an additional thirty bridges was in hand, many of which were
nearing completion at the end of the fiscal year. Of this total, sixteen bridges are
on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Ferry-landings were under construction during the year at Campbell River,
Quathiaski Cove (Quadra Island), Nanaimo, Tsawwassen, and Swartz Bay.
Details of the bridges and ferry-landings completed and under construction
during the year are tabulated hereunder. The total gross expenditure on these
structures was approximately $8,445,000, details of which are given in the Statement of Expenditures.
Of the structures completed during the year, special mention may be made of
the numerous overpasses and underpasses on the Trans-Canada Highway between
Vancouver and Chilliwack and on the Deas Tunnel Throughway, where a distinctive and most economical design principle has been adopted throughout, while
several Trans-Canada Highway overhead crossings of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the difficult terrain of the Eagle Pass were successfully completed.
The Port Mann Bridge, carrying the Trans-Canada Highway over the Fraser
River, was by far the largest Provincial bridge project in course of construction
during the year. Progress in construction was limited due to the very difficult
foundation conditions at the site, but contracts were placed for all remaining parts
of the structure, except the approach superstructure contract.
Other notable structures whose construction was either initiated or continued
during the year were Trans-Canada Highway crossings of the Fraser River at Alexandra, the Columbia River at Revelstoke, and the Columbia River at Donald, while
on the same highway two large concrete arch bridges were under construction in
North Vancouver (Capilano Canyon Bridge and Mosquito Creek Bridge), two
major steel bridges in Rogers Pass, and six structures to complete the Trans-Canada
Highway connection from the Second Narrows Bridge to Taylor Way. Work also
continued on major structures crossing the South Thompson River at Kamloops,
the Columbia River at Trail, the Elk River on the Elko-Roosville Highway, and
the Chilcotin Bridge over the Fraser River on the Chilcotin Highway.
Of interest was the major revision to the North Bend Aerial Ferry, which was
undertaken during the year, and which resulted in much-improved service being
obtained from this important and somewhat unique facility.
The large volume of bridge design and supervision work necessitated the continuing retention of a number of consulting engineering firms to augment the production of the Department's staff. Although increased over-all production is
thereby achieved, this involves considerable processing of such projects by our
own staff.
Construction materials were in good supply throughout the year, and there
was evidence of competitive bidding by contractors for bridge-construction work.
In this connection the advances made in prestressed concrete construction may be
mentioned as indicative of the competitive position being achieved by this medium
of construction, as compared with fabricated structural steel, for short-span
structures.
No exceptional floods or other natural adversities occurred during the year,
and generally conditions were conducive to completion of the bridge-construction F 12
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1959/60
programme. Stream-bed surveys were made at the sites of most of the major river
crossings m the Province, with no untoward developments being revealed.
In addition to its normal work, the Department is responsible for the construction of undertakings by the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges
Authority, the most outstanding one of which, the Deas Island Tunnel was opened
to traffic on May 23rd, 1959, and formally opened by Her Majesty the Queen on
July 15th, 1959.   Construction also proceeded on two other major toll facilities	
the Second Narrows Bridge and the Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay ferry-landings for
the Authority's Vancouver Island-Mainland ferry system—and these projects were
near completion at the end of the year.

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION (CONTRACTS)
Construction, by contract, was down slightly from last year, both in total
mileage completed and total grading quantities handled in the road contracts. But
a greater concentration of work on the Trans-Canada Highway (Route No. 1)
resulted in the largest movement of materials on record for this highway, although
the mileage completed was less than was built during the two years 1956/57 and
1957/58. This is an indication of the greater amount of work required per mile
as the highway nears completion. Two other highways which received priority in
construction by contract were the Southern Trans-Provincial (Route No. 3) and
the Stewart-Cassiar Mining-road.
During the fiscal year, contract quantities in road-construction projects (British
Columbia sections only) were as follows:—
Solid rock cu. yd.
Other materials cu. yd.
Clearing and grubbing ac.
Large culverts and cattle-passes lin. ft.
Other culverts, diameter 10 to 72 inches lin. ft.
Concrete for retaining-walls and drainage structures cu. yd.
Foundation excavation, all materials cu. yd.
Rip-rap (loose and hand-laid) cu. yd.
Fencing. rods
Gates	
Guard-rail (steel and reinforced concrete) lin. ft.
Steel-bin retaining-wall, facial area sq. ft.
Two-lane tunnel excavation (not included in above)..lin. ft.
Gravel base and surfacing—
Pit-run tons
Crushed (3/4- to 2-inch) tons
1 Trans-Canada Highway quantities included were 3,169,985 and 10,358,819 cubic yards respectively.

Z REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION F 25
PAVING
General
The paving season in 1959/60 was abnormally long in that paving work
commenced on March 19th on the Deas Tunnel Throughway and continued right
through the fiscal year with never less than two projects under construction except
when stopped for a short period by snow in January, 1960. This unusual situation
was necessitated by the large mileage of highways ready for paving and the poor
weather conditions experienced during the summer when asphalt paving work is
normally at its peak.
In-service Training
The early start of work in 1959 prevented the organization of a spring training
course for engineering aides, who had to pick up additional technical training as
opportunity permitted. As far as possible, periods of work shut-down were used in
the field to improve training and increase the potential flexibility of employment of
these personnel. In January and February, 1960, it was possible to run a series
of short technical courses which culminated in the first set of formal promotion
examinations to be held in the paving section. It is proposed that these examinations shall be held annually hereafter.
Personnel
The rate of turnover in the paving section continues to be a source for concern.
During 1959 five Resident Engineers and six valuable engineering aides left as a
result of retirement, transfer, or resignation. This trend represents a considerable
loss to the Department in training and experience.
Asphalt Concrete Paving
The over-all programme progressed somewhat slowly for reasons mentioned
elsewhere, although the final work production considerably exceeded that of
1958/59.
Surface Treatment
An extensive seal-coat programme was attempted, using design and control
methods derived from experience with, test sections laid in 1958. The results were
generally satisfactory, though a number of partial failures were noted where work
had been performed under conditions previously indicated to be unsuitable.
Departmental Pulvimixers
Due to the poor weather and long moves, Departmental pulvimix crews had
a poor production year, with unit costs higher than normal.
Soil Cement
A Provincial innovation was the trial construction of approximately 7.3 miles
of soil-cement base in two sections between Smithers and Moricetown in order to
overcome a local aggregate problem. An inspection made in the spring of 1960
would indicate that the base is performing as anticipated.
Contract Performance
Bid prices for asphalt concrete construction showed a downward trend over
preceding years. F 26

REPORT OF THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
ENGINEER
TESTING BRANCH
The Testing Branch, through offices in Victoria, Vancouver, Kamloops, Nelson, and Prince George, carries out investigations with respect to soils, foundations,
concrete, materials testing, etc., at the request of the other branches within the
Department of Highways. A brief resume of operations during the 1959/60 fiscal
year is as follows.
Ten to twenty-five landslides are normally investigated each year, for which
stabilization recommendations are prepared. This year has been no exception.
Landslides near Fernie, New Denver, Lytton, Barriere, Kamloops, Vancouver,
Quesnel, Prince George, etc., were stabilized. In addition, final recommendations
have just been completed for the stabilization of Drynoch Slide south of Spences
Bridge, where an estimated 25,000,000 cubic yards of material is moving. Underground drainage to reduce sub-surface water pressures has proven so successful in
stabilizing earth movements that a second horizontal drilling-machine capable of
placing drains to 300 feet has been purchased and will soon be in operation.
Over thirty bridge-site investigations were carried out to determine the type,
depth, and bearing capacity of the foundations. Proposed bridge sites investigated
include the Columbia River at Donald, Sicamous Narrows, Vedder River near Chilliwack, Kootenay River near Creston, eleven underpasses and overpasses on the
Trans-Canada Highway near Abbotsford and Port Mann, etc.
In an attempt to provide highway-design engineers with more detailed information regarding soils problems, the Testing Branch performed soil surveys on
several proposed projects last year and instigated air-photo interpretation to cover
an entire project for the first time within the Department. This latter method is
extremely noteworthy in that soil types and characteristics, bedrock type and depth,
active and potentially active landslide areas, seepage zones, muskeg, etc., can be
denoted simply by viewing air photographs stereoscopically. It is hoped that within
the next few years every proposed highway project can be designed based on information provided by air-photo interpretation and field soil surveys.
In addition to normal specification testing of traffic and vehicle paint, concrete,
gravel, etc., the Testing Branch this year established facilities to test untreated and
treated timber piles, asbestos-bonded and concrete culverts, and guard-rail.
Several research projects are presently under way. Studies to determine pavement thickness requirements are continuing in conjunction with the Canadian Good
Roads Association. From these investigations, methods have been developed to
evaluate pavement strength, to determine the magnitude of spring load restrictions
and to determine when restrictions should be applied and when they can be removed.
A lecture course involving the application of soil mechanics to highway engineering was given to Regional and District Engineers this year. Such courses have
been found very beneficial in bringing latest developments and new ideas in this
field to the attention of regional and field personnel.
TRAFFIC BRANCH
During the 1959/60 fiscal year this Branch continued a programme of traffic
operations involving highway signing, pavement marking, traffic volume surveys,
channelization, lighting and signalization studies and installation.    The 8-per-cent REPORT OF THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ENGINEER
F 37
average increase in traffic volumes over the previous year brought many traffic
problems to public attention and the number of complaints handled increased
considerably.
The traffic engineering staff has been working for three years on a Canada-
wide joint committee to produce a Canadian Manual on Uniform Traffic Control
Devices. This effort culminated with acceptance of the manual by the Canadian
Good Roads Association at its annual meeting last September in Vancouver. The
standards of the manual have been adopted by the Department, and steps are being
taken to encourage use of the standards throughout British Columbia.
The sign-shop at Langford produced all the Department's sign requirements.
Demand for highway signs is steadily increasing, and it has been necessary to begin
planning for an addition to the sign-shop building. A considerable number of
" Distance " and " Project " signs were produced during the year in addition to the
normal requirements of the Department. All crosswalk signs and most speed-limit
signs throughout the Province were replaced with signs conforming to the new
Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada. The sign-shop produced
and the Branch erected the Department's first freeway directional signing on the
Deas Tunnel Throughway. About half of the mileage of our main highways was
checked for adequate warning-signs. Uniform application of advisory speed signs
was obtained by use of a ball bank indicator. New larger advisory speed signs were
also erected.   This work is being completed in 1960.
Approximately 2,100 miles of centre line were painted during the summer of
1959. This exceeds the previous year's mileage by 5 per cent. Some 34,500
gallons of paint and 165,000 pounds of glass bead were used by three centre-line
crews in performing this work. A spotting crew was formed to increase work output
of the centre-line crews by relieving them of considerable work required in placing
guide markings. New pavement and seal-coating and the extension of barrier lines
necessitated by increased speed-limits made considerable spotting work necessary.
Over 1,100 miles of 60-m.p.h. zones were established during the year. An
extensive before and after study of speeds and fatal accidents was continued.
A number of radar speed checks were taken to assist in the setting of speed-limits.
Signals and flashing beacons were installed at several intersections. Other
improvements, such as lighting and channelization, were installed at a number of
locations. In conjunction with the Board of Transport Commissioners and the
railways, a programme of installation of signals at railway grade crossings was
continued.
A great many traffic problems noted by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police,
municipalities, organizations, and individuals were investigated and corrective action
taken where necessary. This aspect of the work was greatly increased over previous
years, no doubt caused by the increased traffic volumes.
At the start of the year, all weigh-scales and staff were transferred to the newly
formed Department of Commercial Transport.
Traffic planning involved liaison with the Location Branch and design of access
facilities for shopping centres and super-markets. Regulations pertaining to the
erection of advertising signs were administered during the year.
Generally the year was an exceptionally busy one, marked by the opening of
the first freeway sections and by the traffic planning for large shopping centres.
E. B. Wilkins,
Research and Development Engineer. F 38 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1959/60
REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
Right-of-way negotiations for the 1959/60 fiscal year resulted in a total of
1,159 settlements being processed. Three claims were referred to arbitration proceedings for adjudication. The costs of right-of-way and of all other properties
acquired for public purposes by the Department totalled $8,600,428.38. This is
the largest expenditure for right-of-way on record and is accounted for, in part, by
the work undertaken on the Abbotsford—Port Mann—Second Narrows Freeway.
The foregoing includes holdings purchased on behalf of the British Columbia Toll
Highways and Bridges Authority. Sales by public tender and by public auction of
lands acquired surplus to highway requirements and of buildings to be cleared from
rights-of-way totalled 105, with a recovery in funds in the amount of $70,194.
Revenue of rentals prior to the public disposal of lands and buildings as well as from
properties currently held for future construction projects grossed $43,370.62.
At the close of the fiscal year the Department held title to substantial areas of
properties in the Abbotsford-Port Mann sector which had been acquired in freeway
negotiations. Upon completion of the legal surveys defining the new right-of-way
limits, these large holdings may be available for disposition through public sales
during the 1960/61 fiscal year.
L. J. Moore,
Chief Right-of-way Agent.
REPORT OF THE SERVICES ENGINEER
EQUIPMENT
During the year the net sum of $3,506,871.77 was expended to cover the cost
of labour, repairs, fuel, stock, and garage overhead, required to repair and operate
the equipment owned by the Government and used by the Department of Highways.
The previous system of charging a rental rate and fuel rate for the use of this equipment to cover the cost of repairs, etc., was discontinued.
The sum of $889,572.78 was expended on the purchase of new equipment, as
follows: 3 graders, 1 gradall, 4 tractors, 114 trucks, 1 screening plant, 5 loaders,
and sundry small equipment such as caboose trailers, snow-plough, garage equipment, etc.
FERRIES
Fifty-two ferries were operated under the jurisdiction of this Department during
this period. The fleet included ten Government-owned major ferries, eleven
Government-owned power-cable ferries, fifteen Government-owned reaction ferries,
six Government-owned miscellaneous ferries, and ten privately owned chartered
ferries.
All major Government-owned ferries were overhauled during the slack season,
and the following vessels were dry-docked for inspection and underwater cleaning
and repairs: "Catherine Graham," "Delta Princess," "Rolf Bruhn," "Balfour,"
and " Lardeau." REPORT OF THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ENGINEER F 39
Traffic
During the 1959/60 fiscal year a total of 1,684,674 vehicles and 4,372,159
passengers were carried. These figures represent a decrease of 477,679 vehicles and
994,259 passengers from the previous year. This decrease was due to the closure
of the Ladner Ferry.
The Castlegar Ferry carried 643,806 vehicles and 1,635,716 passengers, which
was the largest volume carried by any single ferry.
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway 5 miles north of Creston, showing Duck Lake
and part of Creston Flats.
New Construction and Major Repairs
A new all-steel vehicle ferry named the " Quadra Queen " was built and put
into service between Campbell River and Quathiaski Cove. This vessels has a
capacity of 16 vehicles and 100 passengers. It is 100 feet long and 39 feet wide
and is powered with 400-horsepower diesel engines. New floating-type landings
were also built for this ferry.
Due to the increase in volume and size of freight-vehicles crossing the Kootenay
Lake it was necessary to redesign the superstructure of the M.V. "Anscomb " and
raise the boat deck to provide a vehicle height clearance of 15 feet. This vessel
can now accommodate all types of large trucks and trailer units without difficulty.
The Ladner Ferry M.V. " Delta Princess " was transferred to the Gulf Islands
service.
Work was started on two new landings for an additional ferry at Castlegar.
The Nelson Ferry, which has been idle since the opening of the bridge, will be
moved to Castlegar and put into service during the summer of 1960. This will
double the carrying capacity of ferry service at this site. F 40
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1959/60
Work was started on a new end-loading ferry landing at Nanaimo for the
Gabriola Island Ferry.
During the past year the Ferries Branch spent a great deal of time and effort
attending to the numerous details in connection with the construction of the M.V.
" Sidney " and M.V. " Tsawwassen." These vessels are 330 feet long and are powered with 6,000-horsepower diesel engines. Each vessel has a capacity of 106
vehicles and 500 passengers and will cruise at 18 knots. Both vessels have been
completed, and service between Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen will commence on June
15th, 1960.

COMMUNICATIONS
Region No. 1
An automatic repeater station was installed on Crown land near Aldergrove to
give coverage of the entire Fraser Valley.
Base stations were installed at North Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster,
Cloverdale, Mission, Chilliwack, and Flood, together with a total of forty-four
mobile units.
Assistance was rendered to the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges
Authority relative to its radio installations at Deas Island Tunnel and other points.

Region No. 2
The automatic repeater was removed from the Clinton site and moved to Kelly
Lake site to give greater coverage of the Lillooet District. Base stations were
installed at Mission Mountain and Bridge River construction camp. A total of
twenty-seven additional mobile units was installed throughout the region. One
mobile unit was a total loss due to fire damage in a vehicle.
Considerable engineering and survey work was carried out between Revelstoke
and Golden over the Rogers Pass route, and suitable sites for a practical system
were determined. This work was carried out at the request of the Department of
Northern Affairs and National Resources to ascertain the practicability of a joint
system through the very rugged area involved. F 44
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1959/60
Region No. 3
Radio-sites were developed at Canal Flats and Brisco in the Columbia Valley
to extend communication facilities through to Golden. Base stations were installed
at Golden and Athalmer.
Nelson base station was remoted and antenna changes made at Kootenay Bay
and Creston to tie these points together without recourse to the use of the trunk
circuit.
A total of twenty-two additional mobile units were installed throughout the
region.
The antenna damage due to extreme icing conditions encountered on 6,800-
foot Moyie Mountain has been overcome by a special element design. Research is
continuing for a metal light and strong enough to overcome damage to the much
bulkier antennas required at the 6,900-foot Salmo site.
Region No. 4
No installations were made in this region. However, surveys for site locations
were carried out preparatory to an early start next spring.
General
Additional agreements were entered into with the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police for its joint occupancy of our radio-sites.

Workmen's Compensation Board Claims and Payments
Workmen's Compensation payments, including medical care, are as follows:-
Total of all claims paid in 1959 calendar year  $407,456.34*
Payment of claims which originated during 1959     217.384.232
1 Includes three fatal accidents, four permanent total disability accidents, and forty-seven permanent partial
disability accidents, $139,813.47.
2 Includes one fatal accident and four permanent partial disability accidents, $34,149.28.
Workmen's Compensation payments to Highway personnel are as follows:—
For 1959 calendar year  $147,262.17!
Payment of claims which originated in 1959     104,151.192
1 Includes two fatal accidents and eleven permanent partial disability accidents, $48,118.29.
2 Includes one fatal accident and two permanent partial disability accidents, $26,221.60.
It is interesting to note that the public liability and property damage losses
under our self-insuring policy have averaged $19,500 per year over the past five
years. This compares very favourably with the premium we would have to pay,
which would be in excess of $100,000 per annum were we insured with a private
insurance company.
Fourteen meetings of the Interdepartmental Safety Committee were held, with
an average attendance of eight committee members.
We wish to again extend our thanks and express our appreciation to the members for their co-operation. F 46 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1959/60
In addition to the Interdepartmental Safety Committee in Victoria, which
committee is concerned mainly with the vehicle fleet, there are forty-four local safety
committees functioning in the Department of Highways who are concerned with the
promotion of safety generally. An endeavour is made to maintain personal contact
with each committee during the year, and a constant supply of posters and other
material is made available to them. These committees are to be commended for
their efforts to bring about safe working conditions and safe practices.
F. A. MacLean,
Services Engineer.
REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL OFFICER
The Departmental engineer-in-training programme began this year. By the
end of the fiscal year, five civil engineering graduates had been recruited from the
University of British Columbia. It is planned to recruit approximately three
engineers-in-training each year.
The accounting for nine electoral districts in Region No. 1 was centralized at
the North Vancouver office. After a period of adjustment, operating efficiency has
increased and the experiment can now be considered a success. The accounting for
the Fernie Electoral District was also transferred to our Cranbrook office.
The Ladner Ferry ceased operation, and a concentrated effort was made to
place the employees on this ferry in other types of work. All permanent employees
were placed within a reasonable period of time.
The Electoral Districts of Prince Rupert, Skeena (West), and Atlin (South)
were transferred from the jurisdiction of Region No. 1 to Region No. 4. Geographically, they are more appropriately supervised from the Prince George office.
Further internal reorganization took place at headquarters. The Equipment
Engineer, F. A. MacLean, P.Eng., was reclassified to Services Engineer, responsible for the administration of the Communications Branch, Insurance and Safety
Branch, and Ferries Branch.
Plans were tentatively made for foremen workshops; they will be conducted
for the first time in the next fiscal year.
Under the sponsorship of the Department of Education and the Federal Department of Labour, a number of foremen and engineers have taken the leadership
training courses. Region No. 2 has shown a great deal of initiative by utilizing
the training received in these courses to organize foremen conferences in the various
districts. These conferences were conducted by M. Elston and J. M. Hamilton.
Senior appointments in this Department during the year were: R. G. Harvey,
appointed Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George; D. C. MacVicar, appointed
Regional Maintenance Engineer, Prince George; and N. R. Zapf, appointed Director of Location.
The Provincial Executive Development Training Programme continues to
interest employees of the Department. F. E. Dembiske, P.Eng., Special Projects
Engineer; W. A. Bowman, P.Eng., Senior Design and Structural Engineer; A. R.
Limacher, Regional Office Manager, Prince George; and J. F. Keenleyside, Divisional Engineer, Construction Branch, were accepted for the course during the year.

REGIONAL REPORTS
REGION No. 1
D. D. Godfrey, Regional Highway Engineer, North Vancouver
All roads were maintained satisfactorily throughout the year. Rock-slides on
the Seaview Highway north of Horseshoe Bay required continual attention. However, the new rock slopes on this highway should become stabilized soon.
Snowfall over the region varied from light to average. Icing conditions generally were continuous but were controlled by the use of sand and chemicals.
Over 3 miles of new road were built by day-labour in the Pitt Polder area,
thus providing access to the south end of Pitt Lake. In Comox District 5.81 miles
of new road were built, including 2.60 miles on Cortes Island.
The total length of reconstruction by day-labour of existing roads amounted to
over 30 miles. Included in this is the relocation of the Trans-Canada Highway at
Wander Inn, the dyke road on Barnston Island, and that portion of the Barnet
Highway through the Barnet Slide area. Reconstruction in Mackenzie District was
on the Bella Coola, Lund, Sunshine Coast, and Roberts Creek Roads A section of
the Squamish Valley Road was relocated because of river-bank erosion. On Vancouver Island the Westwood and the Campbell Bay Roads were reconstructed, as
were also parts of the Groulel, Cherry Point, and Shawnigan Lake Roads.
On many side-roads major improvements were made by widening and
gravelling.
Eight bridges were reconstructed and two were replaced by Bailey bridges.
Major repairs were carried out on four bridges.
REGION No. 2
J. W. Pomeroy, Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops
Maintenance was undertaken throughout the year on all trunk and main highways and most other roads. Patching, blading, ditching, vegetation-control, sign-
maintenance, culvert-cleaning, etc., were undertaken on a routine basis. Rock-falls,
slides, washouts, etc., were handled on an emergency basis, involving as little disruption to traffic as possible.
Snowfall was generally average or a little lighter than average. A total of 7,163
miles of highway was ploughed in the region. Because of temperature fluctuation,
sanding was heavier than usual.
Seventy-six miles of highway were reconstructed by day-labour forces. Major
reconstruction was undertaken on the North Thompson Highway, Arrowhead Highway, Monashee Highway, Highway No. 97, Richter Pass Highway, Merritt-Spences
Bridge Highway, Lytton-Lillooet Highway, and the Bridge River Road, where two-
thirds of a 33-mile section, to be flooded by a power development, was reconstructed.
Minor improvements were effected on many more miles of road. Thirty-three miles
were paved with road mix.
Four steel-stringer bridges were constructed during the year. One major and
twenty-two minor timber bridges were reconstructed. Major and minor repair work
was undertaken on other bridges.
The eleven ferries in the region were maintained and operated satisfactorily
throughout the year, with minor interruptions due to ice. Modifications were carried
out on the North Bend Aerial Ferry. REGIONAL REPORTS
F 69
REGION No. 3
D. F. Martin, Regional Highway Engineer, Nelson
All roads were maintained in good condition throughout the year. On the
Southern Trans-Provincial Highway, rock-falls at Christina Lake and at Moyie Lake
gave some trouble, as did also a landslide several miles west of Fernie. Added maintenance was required on the Kicking Horse River section of the Trans-Canada Highway east of Golden to take care of a considerable number of rock-falls and small
mud-slides.
Reconstruction by day-labour projects was carried out on the Rossland Hill,
Beasley Bluff, and Rampart sections of the Southern Trans-Provincial Highway!
Such work was done also on the Rock Creek-McCulloch, Celgar Plant Access at
Castlegar, Vernon-Slocan, Balfour-Kaslo, Canyon-Lister, Waldo-Jaffray, and
Kootenay-Columbia Highways. The Waldo Cut-off was completed, thereby giving
direct access from Waldo to the Elko-Roosville Highway.
Major improvements were made on the Riondel Road by widening and paving,
and on the New Denver-Kaslo and Cranbrook-Smith Lake Roads by gravelling.
Approximately 20 miles of road-mix pavement were laid by district forces.
Nine bridges were completely reconstructed, and one was replaced by a Bailey
bridge.   Major repairs were made to two bridges.
A new equipment-shed was built in the Fernie yard to replace that which was
destroyed by fire.
The amount of snowfall was average, and no difficulty was experienced with
snow-removal operations. Icing conditions in Fernie and Columbia Districts were
worse than elsewhere and required more than normal sanding.
Okanagan Highway 5 miles north of Penticton. F 70 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1959/60
REGION No. 4
R. G. Harvey, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George
Normal maintenance was performed during the year, but due to practically
continual wet weather in Omineca (East) District and between Prince George and
Sinclair Mills some difficulty was experienced in these areas.
A considerable amount of reconstruction was undertaken on the Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway and McDame Creek, Stewart-Cassiar, and Barkerville
Roads. An extensive gravelling programme was carried out on the Northern Trans-
Provincial and John Hart Highways in preparation for paving and on other roads
such as Queen Charlotte City-Towhill, Fort St. James-Pinchi Lake, Blackwater,
Nazko, Fraser, Beavermouth, and in the vicinity of Fort St. John.
A programme of ditching between Macallister and Dog Prairie was completed,
which greatly improved the drainage and the appearance of the Cariboo Highway.
Nine bridges were reconstructed and one was replaced by a Bailey bridge.
Major repairs were made to six bridges.
All ferries operated satisfactorily throughout the year, except when winter
conditions prevented them from being kept in service.
The amount of snowfall varied from well above average in the cosatal area to
less than average in the eastern area. Icing conditions on practically all roads were
severe and required continuous sanding and use of chemicals. MAJOR HIGHWAY WORK COMPLETED OR IN PROGRESS

REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER
The revision of accounting procedures undertaken in the previous fiscal year
has been completed with beneficial results. Financial commitments are now more
readily determined, and substantial savings in clerical staff have resulted therefrom.
The following pages present the financial report of the Department of Highways. The gross expenditure of $76,056,198.98 is an increase of $12,000,000 over
the preceding year, which is indicative of the increased volume of vouchers and
related records processed by the personnel of this Branch.
While there are no changes in the format of the report as presented for this
period, there is one item of significance. The weigh-scales operation is now under
the jurisdiction of the Department of Commercial Transport, and the relative expenditures will be contained in the report of that Department.

Departmental Comptroller. F 94
