REPORT OF THE DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, B.C., September 28th, 1959.
The Honourable P. A. Gaglardi,
Minister of Highways, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—A report of the activities of the Department for the fiscal year 1958/59 is
submitted herewith for your consideration.
Total mileage of roads constructed or reconstructed by contract was 140.42.
Included in this were 43.29 miles on the Trans-Canada Highway, 7.58 on the Southern
Trans-Provincial Highway, 17.51 on the Cariboo Highway, and 17.29 on the Northern
Trans-Provincial Highway.
Total mileage constructed or reconstructed by day-labour was 184 miles. The
mileage of improvements or minor betterments was 337. Details of paving work carried out by district forces are shown in the paving programme.
Thirty-two bridges were completed and work is in progress on thirteen others.
Fourteen of the completed bridges and eight incompleted are on the Trans-Canada
Highway.
Final highway-location surveys completed totalled 240 miles, and the total length
of office design completed with estimates amounted to 146 miles.
There were fifty-seven ferries operating under the jurisdiction of the Department.
They carried 2,162,353 vehicles and 5,366,418 passengers including drivers.
There are 23,018 miles of highways under the supervision of the Department, and
these are comprised of 3,580 miles of trunk highways, 2,345 of main highways, and
17,093 miles of other roads. In addition to this, there are 673.57 miles classified as
arterial or secondary.
The total expenditure for all maintenance on highways, bridges, and ferries
amounted to $14,228,265.16. The cost of snow-removal was $2,671,703.15, over
18,647 miles of road being kept clear of snow.
In the period from January 1st, 1958, to December 31st, 1958, 2,245 subdivisions
were handled by the Department, and 585 of these were adjacent to controlled access
highways. There were issued 616 permits for entrances on controlled access highways
and 532 permits for entrances on non-controlled access highways. A total of 1,797
permits were issued for other works on Crown lands.
In summary, the records indicate that a very large and satisfactory amount of work
was done during the year.
Mr. E. S. Jones, my predecessor as Deputy Minister, retired in August of 1958,
after thirty-five years of outstanding loyal and successful service in the Department.
In conclusion I wish to record that all members of the Department, both at headquarters and in the field, discharged their duties with loyalty, efficiency, and cheerfulness.
H. T. MlARD,
Deputy Minister.  REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
G 11
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
Thirty-two bridges were completed during the fiscal year, together with the construction of ferry-landings at Chemainus and Thetis Island.
Work was also in progress on an additional thirteen bridges, several of which were
nearing completion at the end of the year.
Fourteen of the completed bridges and eight others which are in the construction
stage are on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Details of the major bridges completed during the year accompany this report. The
gross expenditure was approximately $4,830,000, details of which are to be found in
the Statement of Expenditures.
The most outstanding project of the year was Nine Mile Canyon Bridge on the
Fraser Canyon section of the Trans-Canada Highway. This bridge, designed and supervised by this Branch, was constructed at a cost of approximately $1,000,000. Work at
the site commenced late in the year 1956, and the bridge was formally opened on May
26th, 1958.
Steel, timber, and other materials required for bridge construction were readily
available throughout the year, and no abnormal floods were experienced.
In reference to the undertakings of the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges
Authority, the Okanagan Lake Bridge was completed and officially opened by Her Royal
Highness Princess Margaret on July 19th, 1958. Good progress was maintained in the
construction of the Deas Island Tunnel, and at the end of the year the project was
nearing completion. Work on the erection of the main span at Second Narrows Bridge
was suspended for several months following the collapse of a portion of the partially
erected steelwork on June 17th. Work in the meantime proceeded satisfactorily on the
construction of the approach roads, toll plazas, and administration building. G  12

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION (CONTRACTS)
Construction, by contract, proceeded at nearly the same rate as last year. The main
work was concentrated on the Trans-Canada, Vancouver-Blaine, Southern Trans-
Provincial, Northern Trans-Provincial, and Cariboo Highways, and on the Stewart-
Cassiar Road.
Work is completed or proceeding on all but 77 miles of the Trans-Canada Highway,
and of this 77 miles (yet to be awarded), 42 miles will be multi-lane design. The total
length of the highway will be approximately 618 miles—554 miles Provincial and 64 miles
Federal (in National parks). All of the Federal sections are completed or in progress.
The total length of multi-lane construction required is 75 miles, from West Vancouver
to Rosedale.
The 11-mile four-lane section of the new Vancouver-Blaine Highway, from the Oak
Street Bridge to the Ladner Trunk Road, is well under way, and is slated for opening early
next year. Besides the Deas Tunnel and several bridges, two major road contracts are in
progress. Included in these projects are approximately 7 miles of interchanges and
connecting roads.
During the fiscal year, contract quantities in road-construction projects in British
Columbia (excluding Federal sections) were as follows:—
Grading excavation—
Solid rock  cu. yd.
Other materials cu. yd.
Clearing and grubbing right-of-way ac.
Large culverts and cattle-passes lin. ft.
Other culverts, diameter 6 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 above) lin. ft.

PAVING
Extensive advances were made in technical development in paving work in 1958/59.
At the beginning of the year, asphalt concrete and seal-coat specifications were
rewritten to take advantage of the latest development in testing, work techniques, and
improvements in equipment design.
In the revised specifications for asphalt concrete paving, Marshall design criteria
were specified, aggregate requirements redefined, widely accepted improvements in
plant equipment called for, revised methods of operation required, and compaction of
pavements to measured densities specified. Seal-coat specifications were rewritten largely
on an experimental basis to meet theoretical concepts presently being tested.
In order to carry out field design and control, eight mobile field testing laboratories
were put into use in addition to the static paving laboratory which was set up in
Vancouver in 1957. Laboratories controlling asphalt concrete work were provided
with six diamond core drilling trailers for systematic sampling of compacted pavement.
The asphalt concrete paving programme did not proceed as well as hoped. A construction strike delayed preparatory work. The long hot summer resulted in forest
closures and the shut-down of operations in danger areas. REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
G 23
The seal-coat programme was carried out under careful control as experimental
work. Preliminary results were most encouraging and were of considerable assistance
in formulating a design and construction procedure for 1959. Performance studies will
be made of these sections for the duration of their useful life.
Arterial-street improvements were carried out in Kelowna, Kamloops, Prince
George, Dawson Creek, and Burnaby.
Early in the summer, surfacing work was undertaken for the Toll Bridge Authority
at Kelowna. Kelowna Bridge approaches were paved with asphaltic concrete and the
concrete bridge deck surfaced with an experimental thin wearing coat of high void sand-
asphalt mixture, which appears to be performing satisfactorily.
In November and December, 1959, a limited experiment in soil-cement construction was carried out on Project No. 909 immediately south of Oak Street Bridge to
determine the desirability of using a soil-cement base for the Deas Island Tunnel
throughway.
In the spring of 1959 a short course on seal-coat design and construction was
given to selected field staff in Victoria. A more elaborate training and research programme, planned to take place in Vancouver, had to be cut short to provide supervisory
staff for basic construction and asphalt paving on the Deas Island Tunnel throughway,
on which construction commenced in February, 1959.
The quantities of major materials used in the paving programme for the year were
as follows:—
In paving contracts—
Pit-run gravel (base)  tons
Crushed gravel (2-inch and %-inch) tons
Sand    tons
Shou.der gravel, in place tons
Asphalt for prime-coat gal.
Asphalt for seal-coat gal. 407,133

REPORT OF THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
ENGINEER
TESTING BRANCH
Requests for the services of the Testing Branch in evaluating soils, foundations, and
concrete problems increased considerably over the past year. Much of this increase
resulted from a one-month training course given to the Regional Construction Engineers
in the application of soil mechanics to highway construction. It is proposed that additional
allied courses will be given each year.
The three drill rigs operated by the Testing Branch worked at full capacity over the
past year with investigations made on twenty-six bridge-sites, sixteen landslides, forty-
seven gravel-pits, and many other projects. A new Slidemaster drilling-machine capable
of drilling horizontal as well as vertical holes was purchased for landslide stabilization
employing horizontal drains. This method of stabilization represents a significant advance
in landslide technology and has proved to be very economical.
A portable seismograph has also been purchased, which will provide additional
sub-surface information.
This year, research to evaluate the surcharge method for highway construction over
muskeg was completed on Lulu Island. The study has revealed the procedure to be highly
satisfactory and less expensive under certain circumstances than methods previously used.
The pavement-evaluation programme to develop criteria for spring load restrictions
and base-gravel requirements is continuing. Preliminary design data should be available
within one year.
The regional offices are carrying out much of the standard testing and inspection;
consequently, the Victoria office is now dealing principally with the more detailed and
technical investigations.
TRAFFIC BRANCH ~
This Branch continued a programme of traffic operations involving highway-signing,
pavement-marking, traffic-volume surveys, channelization, lighting, signalization studies
and installation, weigh-scale operation, and railway-crossing signals. ■ w&m fmm& G 32 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1958/59
All the signs required by the Department were manufactured at the Department's
own sign-shop. Installation of additional equipment has further improved the efficiency
of this operation. Arrangements were completed for supply of metal sign blanks by the
Oakalla Prison Farm.
Work continued with the Materials Engineer in the expansion and improvement of
testing procedures for traffic paint. Three centre-line crews used about 32,000 gallons
of paint and 144,000 pounds of glass beads in the marking of nearly 2,000 miles of road
at a cost of approximately $150,000.
Channelization and lighting were installed at a number of locations throughout the
Province. Reconstruction of the Lougheed Highway through Burnaby included a considerable amount of this type of work. Reflecting road studs were also installed on this
project.
Numerous requests for signals and beacons were investigated, and where it was
found that warrants were filled installations were made. Actuated signals were installed
at major intersections on the Lougheed Highway through Burnaby.
Weigh-scale operations were expanded during the year, with staff increased from
nineteen to thirty-eight employees.
With major assistance from the Federal Grade Crossing Elimination Fund, signals
were installed or modernized at eight crossings.
Administration of regulations pertaining to private signings on highway right-of-way
and in unorganized territory entailed considerable work for the Branch.
Liaison was maintained with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police regarding hazardous situations.   Considerable study was also done in regard to increasing speed-limits.
Work was carried out in conjunction with the Bridge and Location Branches to
ensure that planned facilities were adequate for expected traffic volumes.
The Department continued to participate in the work of the Technical Committee
for Metropolitan Highway Planning and bore a considerable part of the necessary costs.
The Part II study on " Freeways with Rapid Transit" was completed and published early
in 1959. This report sets down highway needs of the Greater Vancouver area and gives
a plan for stage construction to meet those needs. The report is a significant step in the
development of transportation facilities in the Lower Mainland.
A new problem encountered during the year was the planning of adequate traffic
facilities near large shopping centres. It is expected that this work will increase greatly
in the next year or two.
E. B. Wilkins,
Research and Development Engineer.
REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
Right-of-way negotiations for the 1958/59 fiscal year resulted in a total of 932
claims being completed. Three claims were referred to arbitration proceedings for
adjudication.
Costs of rights-of-way and of all other properties acquired for public purposes by the
Department totalled $4,173,739.61. The foregoing includes holdings purchased by
the Department 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 numbered 149, with a
recovery in funds to the Department in the amount of $181,363.95. Revenue from
rentals prior to the public disposal of these buildings and from properties held for future
construction projects totalled $12,464.52. REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
G 33
The high standard design of the freeways has resulted in substantially increased
right-of-way costs. This is reflected in the current programme involving acquisition of
rights-of-way in Lower Mainland areas where real-property valuations have progressively
increased in recent years.
L. J. Moore,
Chief Right-of-way Agent.
REPORT OF THE EQUIPMENT ENGINEER
During the year the Machinery Account was operated at a credit of $335,090.99
after expenditures totalling $3,786,858.30 for labour, repairs, fuel, stock, and overhead
were deducted from the credit of $4,121,946.29 derived from the rental of equipment
and sale of fuel.
The sum of $951,395.81 was expended in the purchase of new equipment, as follows: 6 graders, 1 tractor, 15 loaders, 114 trucks, 1 30-ton low-bed trailer, 2 road rollers,
1 pull grader, 1 pull scraper, and sundry small equipment such as caboose trailers, garage
equipment, snow-ploughs, tar-kettles, etc.
F. A. MacLean,
Equipment Engineer.
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF COMMUNICATIONS
REGION No.  1
Equipment was obtained for the Lower Mainland-Fraser Valley network and will
be installed as soon as suitable sites are fully developed.
REGION No. 2
This network was extended north from Clinton through Lone Butte to Williams Lake
site of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, and base stations were installed at Williams
Lake office and 100 Mile House.
Base stations were installed at Lillooet and Revelstoke, and a total of twenty-one
mobile units were installed in the South Cariboo, Lillooet, and Revelstoke Districts,
together with an installation on the M.V. " Lardo " at Arrowhead. Two additional
mobile units were also installed in the North Okanagan District.
REGION No. 3
Communication was extended eastward from Grand Forks through Nelson, Creston,
Cranbrook, and Fernie. This involved installations on remote mountain sites at South
Slocan (5,100 feet), Stagleap south of Salmo (6,900 feet), Moyie Mountain (7,000 feet),
and a remote base station out of Fernie on Morrissey Ridge (6,900 feet). Some 5 miles
of jeep-road and 4Vi miles of power-line were constructed to service the South Slocan site.
Base stations were installed at Rossland, New Denver, Nelson, Creston, Cranbrook,
and a control link in the Fernie office. Repeaters were installed at Kootenay Bay and
Carmi to give extended mobile coverage in these areas.
At Stagleap and Moyie Mountain the heavy ice and wind conditions encountered
necessitated the complete redesign of antenna systems and mountings to withstand this
loading. G 34 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1958/59
A total of forty-six mobile units were installed in the areas outlined, together with
installations on the Kootenay ferries "Anscomb " and " Balfour."
Equipment was obtained for the system extension from Cranbrook north to Golden
and will be installed as soon as suitable sites are fully developed.
REGION No. 4
Radio surveys were completed preparatory to the network extension north from
Williams Lake through Prince George to the Peace River Districts and west from Prince
George through Omineca East and a portion of Omineca West Districts.
GENERAL
Agreements were entered into with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for their
joint occupancy of a considerable number of our remote sites in their preliminary development of an identical communications system.
W. F. Conlan,
Superintendent of Communications.
REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
Fifty-seven ferries were operated under the jurisdiction of the Department of Highways during the 1958/59 fiscal year. The ferry system included thirteen Government-
owned major ferries, eleven Government-owned power-cable ferries, sixteen Government-
owned reaction ferries, seven Government-owned miscellaneous ferries, and ten privately
owned chartered ferries.
Considerable attention was given to the maintenance and appearance of all vessels,
and necessary overhauls were carried out during slack periods. Relief ferries were
provided during overhaul periods wherever possible.
One of the major ferry services was discontinued at Kelowna on July 20th, 1958,
when the new bridge was opened. The closure of this service left the " Pendozi,"
" Lequime," and " Lloyd Jones " idle. Due to the age and condition of the " Pendozi,"
it was not considered worth repairs and was therefore turned over to the City of Kelowna
as an item of interest. The " Lequime " is at present being advertised for sale. The
" Lloyd Jones " will be stored at Kelowna until required at another site.
TRAFFIC
During this period, 2,162,353 vehicles and 5,366,418 passengers (including drivers)
were carried. This represents a decrease of 717,405 vehicles and a decrease of 1,758,529
passengers from last year. A large percentage of this decrease was due to the closure
of the Kelowna Ferry service. Most of the major ferries showed a slight increase, but
traffic declined on many of the smaller ferries. During this period the Castlegar Ferry
carried the largest number of vehicles (551,700) and the Ladner Ferry carried 539,874
vehicles.
NEW CONSTRUCTION AND MAJOR REPAIRS
A new steel ferry named the " Ethel Hunter " was built and put into service between
Chemainus and Thetis Island. The vessel is 64 feet long and has a capacity of seven
vehicles and seventy-five passengers. New floating-type landings at Chemainus and
Thetis Island were also built for this service. REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF FERRIES
G 35
Due to heavy increase of traffic to Quadra Island, it was necessary to replace the
chartered ferry "Victory II" with a much larger vessel called the " Uchuck No. 1."
The "Uchuck" has a passenger capacity of 100.
The Barnston Island Ferry was completely overhauled and a new diesel engine was
installed.
A new steel passenger-ferry was built and put into service at Hudson Hope.
The aerial ferry system at North Bend was completely redesigned, and extensive
changes and replacements were carried out. The new system is much safer and more
efficient than the previous installation.
A new steel barge with a capacity of 50 tons was built for service at Clayhurst.
During this period the Ferries Branch spent a great deal of time and effort attending
to the numerous details in connection with the construction of the two new Mainland
ferries. These vessels are 330 feet long and will have a cruising speed of 18 knots with
6,000 horse-power. They will have a capacity of 106 vehicles and 500 persons. At
present, one vessel is under construction at the Victoria Machinery Depot in Victoria and
the other at Burrard Drydock in Vancouver.

J. A. LONSBURY,
Insurance and Safety Officer. REPORT OF THE INSURANCE AND SAFETY OFFICER G 41
REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL OFFICER
There was a sharp reduction in the amount of correspondence between this office
and the field, positive proof that regional administrators are progressively assuming more
control of personnel problems.
The Civil Service Commission authorized Personnel Officers of departments to
perform job evaluations for clerical, stenographic, and engineering positions. All representations for job surveys in these categories have been processed by this office, and
recommendations forwarded to the Commission, and in each case the recommendations
have been acceptable.
The Department participated in a Civil Defence Rescue Course in Vancouver,
attended by twenty-four senior employees.
Meetings were held between the Civil Service Commission and the Departmental
Personnel Officers. The technical staffs of the Civil Service prepared a programme
embracing most aspects of personnel administration. The result has been a better understanding of Departmental and Civil Service Commission problems, advancement in personnel techniques, and a closer relationship between Departmental Personnel Officers.
Mr. E. S. Jones, Deputy Minister, retired on August 31st, 1958. His successor was
Mr. H. T. Miard, previously Assistant Deputy Minister. He, in turn, was replaced by
Mr. D. R. McLeod, previously Regional Highway Engineer, Kamloops.
The Kelowna-Westbank Ferry discontinued service on July 19th, 1958. The
problem of placing employees thereafter met with success. All employees interested in
continuing employment with the Government were placed in other positions.

Maintenance and construction work was completed on twenty-seven bridges in the
district.
Fort George District
Roads
The spring break-up was particularly severe in this district. Road conditions, however, rapidly improved as the result of a concerted effort by the district with the assistance
of a dry summer.
A mile of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was reconstructed east of
McBride. Crushed gravel was applied to an additional 5 miles of John Hart Highway
and this pulvimixed. Major reconstruction was carried out on the Cariboo and Northern
Trans-Provincial Highways south and west of Prince George by contract.
Bridges
Two minor bridges were renewed and sundry repairs were carried out on fifty-one.
North Peace River District
Roads
A heavy and sudden spring run-off caused considerable damage to roads and
bridges in the district. A major reconstruction, drainage, and gravelling programme
was carried out on 17 miles of feeder roads. Tax work, a major expenditure in the
Peace River, was particularly successful this year due to the dry summer.
Bridges
Reconstruction work was carried out on seven bridges, and twenty-two required
sundry repairs.
Omineca District (East)
Roads
Major reconstruction or gravelling was undertaken on approximately 21 miles of
the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway in this district. A portion of this was pulvimixed. Nine miles of the Vanderhoof-Stewart Lake Road were regravelled and many
side-roads ditched and gravelled throughout the summer.
Bridges
Sundry repairs were carried out to twenty-six bridges during the year. REGIONAL REPORTS G 71
Omineca District (West)
Roads
Two miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway and 2 miles of the North
Francois Road were constructed. In addition, the dry summer enabled Departmental
forces to accomplish a heavy ditching and gravelling programme on many side-roads.
A contract was completed on 8 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway east of
Burns Lake, with the exception of surfacing.
Bridges
Three bridges were replaced and sundry repairs were made to nine.
Ferries
The Francois Lake Ferry operated well into January before ice conditions forced
suspension of services.
Skeena District (East)
Roads
Construction on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway was continued west from
Skeena Crossing. Pulvimix was to be laid on the highway west of Smithers, but due
to the lateness of the season this was not possible.
Bridges
Three bridges were replaced by culvert and fill and two rebuilt. Major sundry
repairs were carried out on an additional ten bridges.
South Peace River District
Roads
The spring run-off was sudden and heavy, and many roads and bridges were
washed out throughout the district. Eight miles of the John Hart Highway required
rebuilding after the spring run-off. Approximately 23 miles of feeder roads were reconstructed and (or) gravelled.
Bridges
Sundry repairs were made to fifteen bridges and four were constructed or reconstructed.    Many bridges were replaced by culvert and fill.
Ferries
A new barge was placed in operation at the Clayhurst Ferry. O

$2,671,703.15 G 90 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1958/59
REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER
During the fiscal period under review, it was deemed by the Treasury Board that,
under the present system of accounting, the financial commitments of the Department
were difficult to determine, and direction was received to the effect that certain revisions
were to be made in order to provide more adequate financial control. This revision was
undertaken, and the desired results have been partially obtained by the elimination of
a rather complicated cost system which had been superimposed on the normal Government accounting records. When the revision is completed in the next fiscal year, the
required cost records will become subsidiary to the main accounts.
The following pages present the financial report of the Department of Highways.
While the changes made in the accounting system do not in any way affect the financial
information contained in the report, the format of the report has been altered so as to
reflect in one location the detail of expenditure by electoral districts.
