 HIGHWAYS REPORT
REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER
Victoria, B.C., October 31st, 1961.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—Submitted herewith are the Highway Construction, Paving, and Bridge
Construction Reports for the fiscal year 1960/61, as well as a resume of the work
carried out by the Research and Development Branch, which includes Location,
Soils, and Traffic. While reports covering the activities of the Records and Estimates Engineer and the Special Projects Engineer have not been included, both
have been most active with their many tasks, particularly the latter in his liaison
work between the Department and its various consultants.
To very briefly recap the activities of the various branches with regard to
mileage covered, may I note that the total length of roads constructed or reconstructed by contract was 119.33 miles. Of this total, 36.91 miles were included
in the Trans-Canada Highway.
An extensive paving programme was carried out during the year, resulting in
the laying of 293.19 miles of bituminous plant mix, while 306.33 miles of road mix
and pulvimix were laid.
Construction of twenty bridges was completed, while work proceeded on forty
others. Fourteen of the completed bridges and twenty-four of the uncompleted
are on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Final highway-location surveys during the year totalled 359.49 miles. The
amount of office design completed, together with estimates, totalled 139.55 miles,
which included 10 miles of urban street design.
F. T. Brown,
Chief Engineer.
 I 10 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1960/61
REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER
Victoria, B.C., October 26th, 1961.
Mr. H. T. Miard,
Deputy Minister of Highways,
Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I herewith submit district reports for the fiscal year 1960/61.
There were fifty-four ferries operating under the supervision of the Department. The number of vehicles carried was 1,859,332, and the number of passengers, including drivers, was 4,893,243. This is an increase of 10 and 12 per cent
respectively over that of the previous year.
The total mileage of road constructed or reconstructed by day-labour was 229.
Improvements or minor betterments were made to 609 miles.
The expenditure on maintenance of highways, bridges, and ferries amounted
to $17,030,000. The cost of snow-removal, which is included in the above amount,
was $1,468,029.33, there being 18,410 miles of road kept open during the winter
months.
During the calendar year 1960 there were 3,349 subdivisions handled by the
Department, of which 765 were adjacent to controlled access highways. There
were issued 283 permits for entrances on controlled access highways and 713 permits for entrances on non-controlled access highways. Other permits issued for
other works on Crown lands amounted to 1,815.
Right-of-way negotiations resulted in a total of 780 settlements, amounting
to $3,519,611.
D. R. McLeod,
Assistant Deputy Minister.

 I 12 HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1960/61
REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
Twenty bridges were completed this year, fourteen of which are on the Trans-
Canada Highway. A further forty bridges were in various stages of construction
at the end of the year, twenty-four of which are on the Trans-Canada Highway.
The ferry-landings previously reported under construction at Campbell River,
Quathiaski Cove (Quadra Island), and Nanaimo were completed. Two other
ferry-landings were put in hand at Woodfibre and Darrell Bay, while the ferry facilities at Castlegar were doubled by transferring the displaced ferry vessel from Nelson
to this location.
Full details of the structures completed and under construction during the
year are appended. The total gross expenditure on these structures was approximately $20,150,000, as detailed in the Statement of Expenditure. This expenditure
compares with a corresponding figure last year of approximately $8,445,000 and
indicates the great increase in the tempo of bridge-building which is taking place
in the Province to-day.
A notable work completed during this year was the Lanark Avalanche Shed,
located on the Trans-Canada Highway in the difficult Rogers Pass section. This
structure, of 1,036 feet length, built of reinforced concrete (partly prestressed),
to withstand avalanches of 250 miles per hour velocity, had of necessity to be
completed in one short construction season or risk loss of an uncompleted structure
during the ensuing winter. Efficient planning and co-operation by the consultants,
contractor, and Department personnel resulted in completion before Nature's forces
were unleashed.
Of the larger structures completed during this period, mention may be made of
the striking concrete arch bridges at Capilano Canyon and Mosquito Creek and the
triple steel arch bridge over Lynn Creek, all on the Trans-Canada Highway in
North Vancouver, while the 250-foot-span truss bridge in Courtenay was also completed for service.
The greatly enhanced construction activity during the year was due to the large
number of major works in hand, of which there were twelve at the close of the year.
These are all large river crossings, three being on the Fraser River (Port Mann,
Alexandra, and Chilcotin), three on the Columbia River (Donald, Revelstoke, and
Trail), two on the Thompson River (Kamloops and Spences Bridge), and one each
on the Quesnel River, the Elk River, and the Vedder Canal. Such structures
involve great expense and are inherently subject to the difficulties associated with
underwater work. These difficulties have been met in every case, and it is gratifying to report that they have, in the main, been overcome.
As will be noted from the figures quoted above, emphasis remained on completion of the structures on the Trans-Canada Highway this year, but certain bridges
vitally needed on other highways were proceeded with, and our advance planning
is now concerned more with the latter requirements in view of the near completion
of the Trans-Canada Highway.
The heavy bridge design and construction programme required the continued
retention of a number of consulting engineering firms, the Department's staff being
insufficient to handle the enhanced programme.
Keen competitive bidding on the part of contractors for bridge contracts was
in evidence throughout the year. All materials of construction were found to be in
plentiful supply. The utilization of prestressed concrete members increased during
the period, some twenty structures, incorporating this technique, while our native
timber continues in demand, particularly in the form of glue-laminated construction.
 REPORT OF THE SENIOR BRIDGE ENGINEER
I 13
Weather conditions were favourable for construction operations throughout the
year, and it can be reported that no severe floods or other adverse factors impeded
operations. Stream-bed surveys were taken in routine manner at all major river
crossings without revealing serious scouring.
On behalf of the British Columbia Toll Highways and Bridges Authority, the
Department was responsible for the successful completion of the Second Narrows
Bridge in Vancouver and the ferry-landings at Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay for the
Authority's Vancouver Island-Mainland ferry system, on both of which projects the
services of private consultants were retained. No new major undertakings were
initiated by the Authority during this period.

REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION
ROAD CONSTRUCTION (CONTRACTS)
Mileage of highway construction completed by contract on all highways was
approximately the same as 1959/60. There was an increase of mileage completed
on general highways but a like decrease on the Trans-Canada Highway owing to
the inclement weather which prevailed throughout the Fraser Valley, where a large
percentage of the remaining work is concentrated. Grading excavation quantities
on all highways was slightly lower than last year.
Highways which received construction priority (by contract) besides the
Trans-Canada Highway were as follows: Southern Trans-Provincial (Christina
Creek-Kinnaird section and Salmo-Creston section) and the Cassiar-Stewart
Mining-road.
The Trans-Canada Highway multi-lane section from West Vancouver to the
Agassiz Turn-off is in varying stages of completion. There were two sections
remaining which had not been tendered on at the year's end owing to design difficulties, etc.—Port Mann Bridge to Halls Prairie and Abbotsford to Vedder River.
The 6-mile section from Taylor Way in West Vancouver to the Second Narrows
Bridge and the 16-mile section locally known as the Chilliwack By-pass (Vedder
River to Agassiz Turn-off) were opened to traffic this year.
Another section of the four-lane Deas Tunnel Throughway was started, south
of the Ladner Trunk Road. The approach highways to the Swartz Bay and Tsaw-
wassen Beach ferry terminals were completed and paved, to complete the inauguration of the new ferry service on Route No. 17 (Victoria to Vancouver). Additional
contracts were awarded on Route No. 16 between Prince George and McBride.
The Rossland-Sheep Lake Cut-off Road was started (that is to eventually connect
Rossland to the new Highway No. 3, now under construction). And the last major
unreconstructed section of the Okanagan Highway, part of Route No. 97, was
started by awarding the Peachland-Powers Creek section.
A two-lane tunnel, approximately 2,000 feet long, was nearly completed at
China Bar on the Trans-Canada Highway, and another tunnel was completed near
Hells Gate. There are now four two-lane tunnels in the Fraser Canyon section,
of this highway. Between Revelstoke and Glacier Park (new route) a major reinforced-concrete snowshed was completed. A fifth tunnel will be started in the
Fraser Canyon near Yale, and two more snowsheds are to be started next year.
During the fiscal year, contract quantities in road-construction projects were
as follows:—
Solid rock  cu. yd.    3,837,220!
Other materials  cu. yd.  14,581,940!
Clearing and grubbing ac. 3,158
Large culverts and cattle-passes (structural-steel plate) lin. ft. 3,634
Other culverts (all types), 10 to 72 inches in diameter lin. ft. 98,329
Concrete for retaining-walls and drainage structures _. cu. yd. 16,908
Foundation excavation, all materials cu. yd. 74,963
Rip-rap (loose and hand-laid) cu. yd. 10,684
Fencing rods 13,694
Gates   102
Guard-rail (steel and reinforced concrete) lin. ft. 43,642
1 Trans-Canada Highway quantities included were 2,035,596 and 8,217,078 cubic yards respectively.

 REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF CONSTRUCTION I 29
PAVING BRANCH
(J. W. Kerr, Paving Engineer)
The 1960 paving season, mainly due to favourable weather, was very productive, and nearly all work planned for completion in 1960 was satisfactorily completed. However, rains at the end of August and in early September did delay some
work sufficiently to prevent completion by the onset of winter conditions.
In-service Training
In-service training of potentially useful personnel was carried out in the spring.
Part of this was on-job training provided on contract work in progress, and part
was provided by formal classes of instruction. The training period was followed by
annual written technical proficiency examinations, inaugurated in the spring of
1960, which are used to evaluate and encourage the technical efficiency of paving
personnel.
Base Construction and Hot-mix Asphalt Paving
With the advent of systematic strength evaluation of old pavements and asphalt
stabilized bases by Benkelman beam crews, pavement reinforcement has become a
common feature of hot-mix asphalt paving contracts, and the provision of additional
compacted granular base or soil cement base accounts for a very considerable
increase in volume of work and in the average cost per mile of paving contracts.
Despite the increase in volume of work and cost per mile, the over-all length of
highway paved with hot plant mix increased from 210' miles of two-lane highway
paved in 1959 to the equivalent of 305 miles of two-lane highway in 1960.
Cement-treated Base
Cement-treated base construction, first tried with good results in 1959, was
given further trial in 1960. Approximately 0.9 mile of granular base on the Tsaw-
wassen Ferry Approach Highway was stabilized in place using Portland cement,
to overcome a difficult support condition in the subgrade. In addition, 9 miles of
plant-mixed cement stabilized base was constructed on the John Hart Highway
between Progress and Arras, so that use could be made of otherwise unsuitable base
material locally available. The gain in pavement strength resulting from the use
of this form of construction appeared to be quite satisfactory and indicates that
further construction of this kind may be economically justified elsewhere.
Surface Treatment
Another 271 miles of chip seal-coat was completed in 1960 season. This form
of maintenance is not very popular during and immediately after construction due
to traffic delays imposed on the public and fear of damage from flying chips. Actually little damage was occasioned to vehicles when the public co-operated in the
observance of speed restrictions or where adequate speed enforcement was in effect.
Departmental Pulvimixers
During this year one of the Departmental pulvimixer crews was re-equipped
so that high-class seal-coat construction could be performed at sections where contract construction could not be conveniently or economically undertaken. During
the season, Departmental surfacing crews completed approximately 35 miles of
excellent chip seal-coat and 103.6 miles of asphaltic road-mixed surfacing.

MATERIALS TESTING BRANCH
(C. O. Brawner, Senior Materials Engineer)
The major function is the provision of information and recommendations
pertaining to the engineering behaviour of soils. To provide a greater coverage of
highway projects, heavy-duty drill rigs have been established in each highway
region. Soil surveys for highway-design studies, location of gravel-pits, evaluation
of adverse soil conditions on construction projects, assessment of bridge foundations, etc., are now being carried out more effectively.
Over forty bridge-sites were drilled during the past year, and foundation
reports were prepared for these structures, which included the Paulson Bridge,
Slocan River Bridge, Thompson River Bridge at Pritchard, eight bridges on the
Trans-Canada Highway near Vancouver, and twelve bridges on the Vancouver—
Blaine Highway. The Lower Mainland area of British Columbia is noted for
adverse soil conditions, and specialized techniques, such as stage construction, pre-

consolidation, vertical sand drains, use of light-weight fills, etc., have been required
in numerous instances.
Eighteen landslides were investigated, and stabilization recommendations were
prepared for each. Horizontal drains to reduce sub-surface water pressures were
installed in twelve of the slides. The stabilization of Drynoch Slide near Spences
Bridge is nearing completion, and it is hoped the highway can be completed next
year.
The use of air-photo interpretation has increased over the past year, and preliminary reports on highway alignment, soil types, gravel-pits, landslides, bridge-
sites, etc., are being prepared from the air photos. This procedure is resulting in a
considerable saving in field reconnaissance and inspection time.
The research on pavement-thickness determination is continuing in co-operation with the Canadian Good Roads Association. Excellent correlation between
pavement deflection and pavement performance is being obtained, and design
curves have been developed which yield more accurate design values than methods
being used elsewhere. Continuing research is being carried out to evaluate the
effect of shoulder width and type, temperature, heavy vehicle loads, etc., on the
pavement.
Facilities to carry out control testing on the materials used by the Highway
Department are being expanded. Specification tests can now be performed on
traffic, vehicle, building, and bridge paints, concrete, cement, gravel, soils, timber
piles, timber preservatives, glue-laminated beams, asbestos-bonded corrugated-metal
culverts, concrete culverts, wood-stave culverts, guard-rails, reinforcing-steel, precast concrete bridge components, etc.
TRAFFIC BRANCH
(J. H. Harding, Senior Traffic Engineer)
The Traffic Engineer found, from summer traffic counts covering all major
highways in the Province, that 1960 volumes were at least 6 per cent higher than
those in 1959. Volumes increased by 8 per cent on Vancouver Island and 6 per
cent in the Interior of the Province. The Lower Mainland traffic pattern changed,
and no representative figure showing the average increase can be given. Changes
ranged from an increase of 37 Vi per cent on Deas Tunnel Throughway and 50 per
cent on Highway No. 10 west of Highway No. 99 to slight drops in traffic on the
Trans-Canada west of Langley and in West Vancouver.
A complimentary copy of the Canadian Manual on Uniform Traffic Control
Devices was sent to all cities and municipalities within the Province, together with a
letter from the Honourable the Minister urging that the manual be adopted as a
standard manual throughout British Columbia.
The sign-shop continued to produce signs at record pace. More large freeway-
type directional signs were produced, and the programme of improvement to directional signs throughout the Province was continued. The Department is using an
increasing number of overhead directional signs mounted on a curved steel sign
support. Over thirty of these signs were erected during the past year. The programme of erecting " distance " signs was completed throughout the southern portion of the Province. A survey of mileages for " distance " signs was made in the
northern part of the Province, in preparation for erection of such signs in that area.
Conversion of British Columbia signs to the new Canadian standard was continued.
All school signs were converted to the new standard, and other signs were converted or are in the process of conversion to the new Canadian standard.   The pro-
 REPORT OF THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ENGINEER I 45
gramme of checking the main highways for adequate warning-signs was continued,
but not completed during the summer. This programme will ensure that there is
uniform application of advisory speed and other warning signs.
An extensive programme of installation of automatic signals at railway grade
crossings, in conjunction with the railways and the Board of Transport Commissioners, was continued. Requests for traffic signals and traffic beacons increased
considerably during the year. This required a large number of traffic surveys at
intersections to find out if traffic warrants were filled, and to establish traffic movements for traffic-light design purposes.
Considerable work was done on planning, lighting, and geometric design of
freeways and highway intersection. In order to preserve capacity and safety of
highways by controlling access, the traffic engineering staff designed numerous
commercial accesses and egresses, particulary for shopping centres.
The Senior Traffic Engineer represented the Department on the Capital Region
Planning Board, on the Technical Committee for Vancouver Metropolitan Highway
Planning, on the British Columbia Safety Council, and on the Canadian Good Roads
Association Joint Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada.
As in previous years, the centre-line programme has again increased. The
weather was favourable, and three centre-line crews and one spotting crew painted
over 2,500 miles of roads, which included over 450 miles of seal-coat or new pavement. This is an increase of 19 per cent over last year, which was the biggest year
until 1960. The programme used 41,200 gallons of paint and 197,000 pounds of
glass bead. Judging from the increased number of requests for centre-lines, the
driving public recognize their great usefulness.
A number of radar speed checks were taken to assist in the setting of speed-
limits. Some additional highway was raised from a 50-miles per hour limit to a 60-
miles per hour limit.
Many traffic problems noted by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and other
organizations or individuals were investigated, and improvements and changes were
ordered where necessary.
On the first of January, supervision of the Department's Sign-shop and of
the centre-line painting crews and Fraser Valley sign and painting crew was turned
over to the Services Engineer, those responsibilities being " operations " measures.
Design and usage of signs and standards and programming of centre-line painting
will continue to be the responsibility of the Traffic Engineer, being design measures.
Work was commenced on collecting data for the road inventory to complement
the pavement evaluation work being done by the Materials Engineer.
E. B. Wilkins,
Research and Development Engineer.

REPORT OF THE CHIEF RIGHT-OF-WAY AGENT
Right-of-way negotiations for the 1960/61 fiscal year resulted in a total of
780 settlements being processed. Four claims were referred to arbitration proceedings for adjudication.
The costs of rights-of-way and of all other properties by the Department
totalled $3,593,451.42. 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 181,
with a recovery in funds in the amount of $198,627. Revenue of rentals prior to
the public disposal of lands and buildings, as well as from properties currently held
for future construction projects, grossed $65,180.13. The Department has held
title to a substantial number of properties, particularly in the Lower Mainland area,
which were acquired in freeway negotiations and, with the completion of legal surveys defining the new right-of-way limits, is now in process of disposing of these
surplus lands by public sales.
L. J. Moore,
Chief Right-of-way Agent.
REPORT OF THE SERVICES ENGINEER
EQUIPMENT
During the year the net sum of $3,422,490.68 was expended to cover the cost
of labour, repair, fuel, stock, and garage overhead, required to repair and operate
the equipment owned by the Government and used by the Department of Highways.
The sum of $1,410,349.50 was expended on the purchase of new equipment,
as follows: 20 graders, 11 tractors and loaders, 2 gradalls, 2 power units, 4 distributor-trucks, 2 4-ton bridge trucks, 38 Vi-ton light deliveries, 31 Vi-ton panels,
1 highway chip-spreader, 1 roller, 8 vibrating rollers, 4 trailers, 40 4-ton dump-
trucks, 14 3-ton dump-trucks, 19 station wagons, 13 sundry vehicles, and sundry
small equipment such as snow-ploughs, garage equipment, etc.
FERRIES
(H. K. Gann, Superintendent of Ferries)
The fleet consisted of fifty-four vessels and included eleven Government-owned
major ferries, twelve Government-owned power-cable ferries, sixteen Government-
owned reaction ferries, six Government-owned miscellaneous ferries, and nine privately owned chartered ferries.
All ferries were inspected during the year and reports submitted. Overhauls
were carried out during slack periods, and the following ferries were dry-docked
for inspection and underwater repairs: Kootenay Lake, Albion, Delta Princess,
Denman Island, Thetis Island, and Quathiaski Cove.
Traffic
During this period the higher traffic count at nearly all ferries resulted in a
larger total volume than last year.    This year 1,859,332 vehicles and 4,893,243
 REPORT OF THE SERVICES ENGINEER I 47
passengers were carried, which represented an increase of 174,658 vehicles and
521,084 passengers over the previous year.
The largest volume of traffic at any crossing was carried by the Castlegar Ferry,
which reached an all-time high of 780,148 vehicles and 1,920,438 passengers. The
movement of this tremendous volume of traffic by one ferry resulted in frequent
congestion and delays. This problem has now been solved by the installation of a
second ferry of similar capacity.
A new steel vehicle and passenger ferry named the " Quadra Queen " was built
and put into service between Campbell River and Quathiaski Cove. This vessel is
110 feet long and has a capacity of eighteen vehicles and 100 passengers. New
landings at Campbell River and Quathiaski Cove were built to accommodate this
ferry.
A sister ship to the " Quadra Queen " was built for service between Woodfibre
and Darrell Bay. The ferry was named the " Garibaldi." New landings are being
built at Woodfibre and Darrell Bay, and when these are finished, the " Garibaldi"
will take over the run from the present vessel, " Rolf Bruhn."
The Nelson Ferry, which has been idle since the opening of the Nelson Bridge,
was moved to Castlegar to relieve the traffic congestion at that site. Two new landings were built to accommodate this ferry. The two ferries can now handle over a
million vehicles per year.
A new steel twin-screw tug was built to replace the old wooden tug at Clay-
hurst. This tug is equipped with two 100-horsepower diesel engines to facilitate
the handling of the barge in fast water.
A new steel floating-type landing was built at Nanaimo for the Gabriola Island
Ferry.
The former Ladner Ferry " Delta Princess " was used on the Saltspring Island
service, thus releasing the " Motor Princess " for the Gulf Islands service during
the summer months.
In addition to the foregoing, a great deal of time and effort was given by this
Branch to the numerous details in connection with the completion of the M.V.
" Sidney " and M.V. " Tsawwassen."

 I 50 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1960/61
COMMUNICATIONS
(W. F. Conlan, Superintendent of Communications)
During the year, communication facilities were extended north through Prince
George to include the John Hart Highway and Peace River area and west from
Prince George to include Omineca East and West Districts. Additions east of
Fernie, at Gibsons Landing, and on Mission Mountain improved communications
in the areas mentioned.
In the Lower Mainland the replacement of several scattered stations by one
master station located on Capitol Hill, Burnaby, effected a considerable improvement in general coverage. An extended control system was also installed in the
North Vancouver office building, enabling system operation from all appropriate
offices.
Some 146 mobile units, 9 base stations, 9 automatic repeaters, and 1 ferry
were added to the radio network. One base station was removed upon completion of the Bridge River project.
Ice damage of antennas previously encountered on some remote mountain-top
stations has been reduced to an acceptable minimum by new design and installation
techniques. Changes in antenna electrical characteristics due to heavy ice loads
is gradually being eliminated as time and weather conditions permit.
Average circuit reliability throughout the system was better than 99 per cent.
This compares very favourably with microwave, with a 99.8-per-cent reliability and
at a very small fraction of the cost.
Radio surveys for the Rogers Pass trunk extension were completed, as were
clearing of sites and access-road construction. Buildings of a special design to
combat the heavy snow were constructed and installed at all sites, complete with
emergency power-supplies, in readiness for equipment installation next year. This
system is being designed to provide a joint communication facility not only to ourselves, but to> the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Department of Northern
Affairs and Natural Resources.
Radio surveys were also completed, and sites cleared for future extensions
covering Skeena East and West and the westerly portion of Omineca West Districts.
Preliminary surveys covering Vancouver Island communication requirements were
also undertaken.
Co-operation with other departments continued during the year, and the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police are now occupying most of our remote sites. Facilities
were also granted to the Canadian National Railways, West Kootenay Power and
Light Company, British Columbia Forest Service, and the British Columbia Power
Commission.

For 1960 calendar year 1  $108,762.841
Payment of claims which originated in 1960       65,689.39
1 Includes twelve permanent partial disability accidents, $14,610.17.
The number and types of claims continue to increase, particularly in construction areas. Because of the exigencies of other work, it has not been possible
to devote as much time to safety promotion as the subject demands. Safety Committees in the various districts continue to function well. There were fourteen
meetings of the Interdepartmental Safety Committee held.
We wish to express our appreciation of the work of not only the Interdepartmental Safety Committee, but the Safety Committees of the Department of Highways in the various districts.
F. A. MacLean.
Services Engineer.
REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL OFFICER
TRAINING PROGRAMMES
1. Engineers-in-training.—The training of our engineers remains the focal
point of interest and attention. Five University of British Columbia civil engineer
graduates now form the trainee group. Special emphasis is being placed on their
development as administrators, with a broad knowledge of engineering techniques
and problems in all branches of the Department.
2. Foreman Workshops.—Each region has conducted one or more workshops
with gratifying results. These workshops form the beginning stage in a gradually
expanding foreman training programme. As time progresses, more emphasis will
be placed on technical skills.
3. Management Training Programme.—These special courses, conducted by
the Department of Education, Vancouver, have been attended by key personnel
from all over the Province. Region No. 2 has used the courses as a basis for supervisory training for all supervisors within the region, lectures being conducted, for
the most part, by Mr. J. M. Hamilton, District Engineer, Penticton. The balance
of our regions will follow the same training procedure in the near future.
4. Executive Development Course.—This very fine and comprehensive course,
administered by the Civil Service Commission, is now attended by nine employees.
The Regional Highway Engineer, North Vancouver, Mr. D. D. Godfrey, is the first
of our employees to complete the course.
 REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL OFFICER I 53
EXAMINATIONS
The Civil Service Commission has organized draughting examinations for all
classes of draughtsmen within the Department. It has been a very progressive step
and has unquestionably set a high standard within this field.
Examinations are set for all engineering aide groups within the Department,
which must be passed prior to reclassification or promotion. It is hoped, in the near
future, to organize an Engineering Aide Manual pertinent to the various and sundry
branches of the Department.
ORGANIZATION
1. Bridge Branch.—The position of Assistant Bridge Engineer was discontinued and replaced by a Chief Bridge Design Engineer and Chief Contract Construction Engineer. Mr. L. Johnson was promoted to the former position; Mr. W.
Bowman, the latter.
2. Services Branch.—To minimize pressure of work at the executive level, the
Insurance and Safety, Communications, and Ferries Branches were placed under the
administrative control of the Equipment Engineer, whose title was changed to
Services Engineer. A segment of the Traffic Branch (sign-shop and centre-line
crews) was also placed under his jurisdiction, enabling the Traffic Engineer to
devote more time to traffic engineering sciences.
3. Accounting Branch.—The Headquarters Regional Accounts Section was
integrated with the Headquarters Main Accounts Section, resulting in a more
streamlined and effective accounting system.
JOB SURVEYS
In conjunction with the Civil Service Commission, a survey was conducted
on stockmen, yardmen, and timekeepers. We have not been advised of the official
results of the survey, but it is apparent that uniformity and a more balanced classification system will be the end result.
This office conducted six job surveys, resulting in two reclassifications.
POSITION COMPETITIONS
Through the medium of the Civil Service Commission, thirty-seven competitions were held.   Direct competitions within the Department totalled forty-four.
APPLICATIONS
A total of 1,193 applications was received and processed during the fiscal year.
RETIREMENTS
Mr. C. K. Saunders, Senior Bridge Engineer, retired in June, 1960.
Mr. T. F. Baxter, Senior Draughtsman, although subject to retirement in January, 1960, was retained on staff until September, 1960.
Both these retiring officials had a record of long service, dedicated to their
duties and the general public.

Personnel Officer.

Alberni, Burnaby, Chilliwack, Comox, Cowichan - Newcastle, Delta, Dewdney,
Esquimalt, Lillooet (South), Mackenzie, Nanaimo-lslands, New Westminster,
North Vancouver, Saanich, and Vancouver-Point Grey Electoral Districts.
Alberni District
The arterial highway through both Ucluelet and Tofino was paved, and the
Faber and McCoy Lake Roads received an application of road-mix asphalt. Lake
Shore Road was widened.
The Deer Creek Bridge was completely rebuilt. An ice-control programme
utilizing chemicals was carried out with success.
 REGIONAL REPORTS I 71
Burnaby District
Roads
Widening and shouldering was completed on 4 miles of the Grandview-Douglas
Highway from Curie Avenue to Edmonds.
Channelization with left-turn slot, painted islands, and traffic signal was
installed on Grandview Highway at Gilmore Avenue.
Normal maintenance was carried out on all highways in the district throughout
the year.
Snowfall conditions were light during the winter months, and normal traffic
flow was maintained without difficulty.
Bridges
Normal maintenance and repairs were carried out on all bridges in the district.
Chilliwack District
Roads
Maintenance.—All roads were graded and well maintained, with particular
attention to shoulder grading on the main roads. Extensive mowing was done on
the rights-of-way and, with the additional four-lane section of 16 miles of Trans-
Canada Highway, crews were kept very busy. The entire shoulders were regravelled
on Highway No. 11 from Abbotsford to Mission, and considerable ditching in the
Abbotsford area. Calcium chloride was used with good success on the shoulders
of the main highway on curves.
An extensive weed spray programme was undertaken with resultant good effect.
Bituminous Surfacing.—Seven hundred tons of mulch were laid to pave the
Abbotsford Mission Highway and Riverside Road.
One-tenth of a mile was paved on Second Street, Huntingdon Townsite.
Construction.—Reconstruction of a section of the Abbotsford-Mission and
Riverside Road was carried out; length, 0.48 mile.
Cole Road within the Municipality of Sumas was constructed for a distance of
0.5 mile.
Watt Road was constructed in the Columbia Valley; distance, 0.26 mile.
Mount Baker Trail, 260r, was reconstructed for a distance of 1 mile.
Snow-removal
Snowfall was less than average, and icing conditions were below normal. All
roads were in very good condition during the winter.
Bridges
All bridges were maintained in a satisfactory condition. The Cultus Lake
Bridge was reconstructed.
Comox District
Roads
Maintenance.—Regular maintenance was carried out on all roads.
A very mild winter was encountered, with little snowfall but much above-
normal rainfall. Considering the abnormal rainfall, a negligible amount of flood
damage occurred throughout the district.
 I 72 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1960/61
New Construction (Day-labour).—Two miles of new highway were built on
the Qualicum-Bowser section, from the Island Highway south of Parksville to Station Road.
Reconstruction (Day-labour).—A retaining-wall, for a length of 0.21 mile, was
reconstructed along the edge of the road through the Indian reservation at Alert Bay
to arrest erosion of the road by the sea.
North West Bay Road, for a distance of 2.3 miles, from the Island Highway to
Claudet Road was reconstructed.
A total of 8.69 miles of minor roads was reconstructed.
Road Mixing (Day-labour).—A total of 11.20 miles of road was road-mixed.
In addition, 2 miles of pavement were laid over an existing concrete roadway in
the Village of Alert Bay.
Seal-coating (Day-labour).—A total of 9.91 miles of roads was seal-coated and
6.76 miles flush-coated.
Curb and Gutter (Day-labour).—Curb and gutter for a length of 0.34 mile was
constructed along the north side of Comox Avenue, a secondary highway through
the Village of Comox.
Bridges
The following bridges were reconstructed: (1) Nanoose Bridge, No. 127, on
the Beaver Creek Wharf Road; (2) Nanoose Overhead Crossing, No. 190, on the
Island Highway; and (3) preliminary work was carried out on the approaches to
Nelson Bridge, No. 437, on the Sayward Road.
The approaches to the new overhead crossing at Nanoose were completed, and
considerable difficulty was experienced in erecting a retaining-wall at the base of
the fill. A 200-foot-long bin-type retaining-wall was installed in preference to a
reinforced-concrete retaining-wall because of the poor foundation.
Ferries
Normal service was maintained throughout the year.
Ferry service between Campbell River and Quathiaski Cove commenced on
April 9th, 1960, when the M.V. " Quadra Queen" completed her maiden trip. The
ferry service was interrupted many times during the winter months because of stormy
weather.   Relocation of the Campbell River landing should eliminate this problem.

On the Vernon-Slocan Highway, 1 mile of reconstruction between Cape Horn
and 12 Mile was 90 per cent completed. At Burton 0.6 mile of road was constructed on new location providing approaches to a new bridge over Caribou Creek.
Major repairs were carried out on all sections between Nakusp and Fauquier which
suffered during the spring break-up. One thousand feet of concrete guard-rail were
installed north of Slocan.
On the Kaslo-New Denver Road an additional 3 miles of former railway grade
were opened for traffic, though gravelling was only completed for 2 miles.
Short, narrow rock sections were widened on the Lardeau-Gerrard Highway
south of Lardeau and on the Vernon-Slocan Highway south of Silverton.
Paving
On the Vernon-Slocan Highway immediately north of New Denver, 1.9 miles
of road-mix paving were carried out by district forces.
 REGIONAL REPORTS I 87
Bridges
Regular maintenance was carried out on all bridges throughout the year. Work
was completed on Walker Bridge at Burton, and a new bridge was constructed at
Goat Creek. Complete reconstruction was carried out on Brouse and Wilson
Bridges.   Major repairs were carried out on Winlaw Bridge.
A new bridge constructed under contract was completed at Silverton.
Ferries
Ferries at Arrow Park and Needles were maintained in good condition and
operated continuously throughout the year. Repairs as required were carried out
on all landing-ramps. Wheel-guards and engine-room walls on the Needles Ferry
were renewed.
Snow-removal
All travelled roads were kept open and sanded. Snowfall was considerably less
than other years in nearly all areas.
Nelson-Creston District
Roads
The reconstruction of the 0.5-mile section of Beasley Bluffs, commenced in
1959, was completed and paved.
Work continued on the Canyon-Lister Road and has now been paved from the
Kolthammer corner south to Lister settlement.
Extensive widening, realignment, and gravelling were carried out on 27 miles
of district roads.
Bridges
Normal bridge maintenance was carried out. No flood damage was experienced during spring run-off.
Ferries
Ferry traffic showed a definite increase during the fiscal year, but every endeavour was made to handle the increased traffic with a minimum delay.
Rossland-Trail District
Roads
The major item under day-labour projects was the reconstruction of the arterial
highway in Warfield to complete the reconstruction of the Rossland Hill from Rossland to below the Warfield Underpass. This was paved by contract under the Paving
Branch.
Work on the road from Robson to Deer Park was continued with 2.5 more
miles of pulvimix, bringing the hard surface to Syringa Creek Post Office. Clearing
and rough grading beyond for another mile and a half was at a lower standard
because of the prospect of Arrow Lakes flooding. Some further rock work and
gravelling were done on the bluffs.
Six miles of the Cascades were widened for two-lane traffic by D-8 bulldozer
and blasting.
On the Celgar Plant Access Road, 2.2 miles of road mix were laid.
Three miles of Highway No. 3a from Parks to Ross Spur had improvements
made to the ditches and shoulders.
The 1-mile access road to the Country Club and Golf Course was road-mixed.
 I 88 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1960/61
Gravelling was done on side-roads, in particular the Pend d'Oreille, Casino, and
Columbia Gardens Roads, under district vote.
Ferries
The traffic on Renata and Castlegar Ferries continued to increase. During the
summer additional hours of evening service were given at Renata on week-ends and
the second unit put into service at Castlegar on August 5 th after completion of the
new ramps and reassembly of the barge from Nelson.
Bridges
Normal maintenance was carried out on bridges. Material was purchased for
complete renewal of Ross Spur No. 2, No. 26, and redecking Waneta Bridge, No. 31.
Snow-removal
Snowfall was average, but icing conditions were rather more troublesome than
usual. Screened material was used for abraisive. All roads were kept open. Rotary
ploughs cleared the Kinnaird-Cascade Road, under construction, in March.
REGION No. 4
(R. G. Harvey, Regional Highway Engineer, Prince George)
Atlin, Cariboo (North), Fort George, North Peace River, Omineca, Prince Rupert,
Skeena, and South Peace River Electoral Districts
Atlin (North) District
Spring break-up was not severe, resulting in few restrictions being imposed
on roads.
Day-labour projects were completed, with the major work being done on the
Dease Lake-Telegraph Creek Road. A fairly dry summer permitted a general
improvement to existing roads by the district maintenance forces. Ditches were
cleaned, back-slopes were trimmed, and gravel was replaced on some thin sections.
Two bridges were renewed on the McDame Creek Road.
A light snowfall permitted the district forces to stay within prescribed budgets
and to keep all roads open.
Atlin (South) District
Roads
Maintenance.—All travelled roads in this district were maintained to an
adequate standard throughout the year without undue difficulties.
Construction.—Through co-operation with the Construction Branch, our district force cleared 81 acres and grubbed 50 acres along the route of the Stewart-
Cassiar Road.
Bridges
The two largest bridge jobs were at Stewart, where a 342-foot timber trestle
was replaced by a shot-rock fill, and extensive river-bank protection was undertaken
at the site of another bridge over the Bear River.
Garages
Stewart garage had a concrete floor poured, interior painted, washroom
installed, parts-room partitioned off and shelves erected, hot-air ducts placed above
the ceiling, insulation, and new doors purchased.
 REGIONAL REPORTS I 89
Snow-removal
Snowfall was lighter throughout the district than was the case during the
previous year.   No difficulty was experienced in this phase of our operations.
Cariboo (North) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Road maintenance was carried out as required, with approximately 220,000 cubic yards of gravel being hauled. This was used to gravel 10
miles of sundry roads and regravel approximately 33 miles. Approximately 11
miles of road were prepared for pulvimix. Sundry roads were reditched, with 5,700
lineal feet of culvert pipe being used. Minor widening was carried out throughout
the district, the most notable being on the Quesnel-Nazko Road, where truck
snow-ploughs can now be used.
Day-labour Projects.—Barkerville and Blackwater Roads each had a section
reconstructed with realignment.
Two miles of the Fraser Road were reconstructed on the existing alignment.
Four miles on the Barkerville Road and the entire length of Western Plywoods
Road were regravelled in preparation for pulvimix.
The approaches to the new Quesnel River Bridge were filled to give sufficient
access to the bridge.
Considerable work was carried out stabilizing the slides on the Cariboo Highway north of Quesnel. Four major slides were stabilized in addition to those of
minor magnitude.
Bridges
Larsen Bridge, No. 48, was constructed immediately up-stream to the old one.
Approaches to the new bridge are an improvement over the old one.
Bear River Bridge, No. 15, was started, with the piles and caps being completed before freeze-up.
Repairs to scour on Canyon Creek Bridge, No. 28, were carried out. A gravel
dyke and pile deflection wall lasted until the high water this spring.
Ferries
Necessary maintenance was carried out on the three ferries in the district.
Buildings
An oil-shed was constructed at the Soda Creek yard.
Assembly-room at Quesnel was completed, with washroom facilities being
added.
Snow-removal
Approximately 925 miles were kept open, with 7,700 yards of sand being used.
Fort George District
Roads
The year commenced with an unusually severe spring break-up. All roads
were affected, with areas such as Giscome, Chief-Reid Lake, and McBride-
Valemount becoming almost inaccessible. Heavy expenditure kept traffic moving.
However, this, in turn, restricted minor improvements for the balance of the season
when conditions were more favourable.
 I 90
HIGHWAYS REPORT,  1960/61
Day-labour.—A very large day-labour programme was carried out, reaching
into all parts of the district. Major works were: (1) Preparation for paving Mile
56 to Mile 76 on John Hart Highway; (2) construction of the remaining 7-mile
section of the Prince George west section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway;
(3) general improvements on the Prince George east (Giscome) section of the
Northern Trans-Provincial Highway for 21 miles.
Nine other day-labour projects of lesser degree, several of long standing, were
carried out to the satisfaction of Department and public.
(Department of Highways photos.)
Reconstructing Moberly Bridge, No. 83, February, 1961.
Creosoted pile trestle; length, 150 feet; roadway, 24 feet.
 REGIONAL REPORTS I 91
Bridges
The completion of the King Creek Bridge on the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway east of McBride was welcomed by all, when a poor section of road and a
bridge in a state of collapse were eliminated.
A temporary bridge constructed on the new location of the North Thompson
Highway at Canoe River will now permit heavy log hauls until the new highway is
constructed.
Minor repairs were carried out on a number of other bridges, particularly in
the McBride area.
Three bridges, long restricted in loading, were eliminated by culvert and fill—
Big Creek between Hansard and Sinclair Mills and the two Upper Mud River
Bridges.
Ferries
Two ferries operated during the year—the Isle Pierre on an all-year basis and
the Hansard on a seasonal basis, April 15th to November 15th, being one of the
longest seasons of its operation. Traffic on this ferry is on a rapidly increasing basis
and is becoming somewhat of a problem on week-ends.
Snow-removal
Snowfall in the district varied considerably, from fight in the McBride area,
average in Prince George, to heavy in the Pine Pass (John Hart Highway). The
snowfall in the Pine Pass reached a total of 463 inches, as compared with 355 and
383 in previous years. With extensive use of the Pacific truck plough, costs were
reduced over the previous year and good service given.
Over the entire district critical ice conditions were experienced periodically
with the weather cycle, which demanded constant and concentrated efforts for days
at a time.
Pavement
Paving over pulvimix on the Cariboo Highway and the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway west, also paving on the John Hart Highway and completion of the
Prince George By-pass brought greater travel comfort to the increasing vehicular
traffic.
Summing it all up, it can be said we had a busy year, but not without the satisfaction of considerable progress.
North Peace River District
As the spring break-up was not severe, restrictions were placed on the dirt and
gravel side-roads for short periods only. Restrictions remained in effect on the
paved roads until mid-June.
A fairly dry summer assisted in the completion of the day-labour projects
undertaken. These were general gravelling projects. Reconstruction of several
side-roads was undertaken with district forces, out of maintenance funds.
The snows came late, which resulted in a light winter for the district. The
entire mileage of roads in this district was kept open, and the district managed to
stay within the prescribed budgets.
Omineca (East) District
Roads
General Maintenance.—The worst break-up in many years was experienced,
and many district roads suffered from the effect of frost-boils for most of the summer;
otherwise, roads were well maintained.
 I 92 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1960/61
Construction.—Two sections of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, totalling 8.5 miles, were reconstructed on new alignment by day-labour. Crushed gravel
was applied to 10.5 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway, preparatory
to pulvi-mixing. Three miles of the Vanderhoof-Stuart Lake Road were widened
preparatory to laying base gravel. Twenty-two miles of side-roads were brushed,
reditched, with some grade revision, and gravelled. This latter programme produced excellent results.
Snow-removal
Snowfall was generally about average. Icing conditions were severe due to
mild weather, resulting in demand for continuous sanding.
Bridges
No bridges were reconstructed, but considerable maintenance was carried out
on main district bridges.
Bridge Replacement
No programme of bridge replacement was carried out as such, but the Endako
River Bridge at Priestly was eliminated on the day-labour reconstruction on the
Priestly-Sheraton section of the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway by the use of
three 15-foot 8-inch multi-plate culverts.
Omineca (West) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Routine maintenance was carried out on district roads. A wet
fall curtailed the ditching programme somewhat.
Reconstruction.—Reconstruction was completed between Quick and Telkwa
on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway. Good progress was made on projects
west of Topley on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway and south of Burns Lake
on North Francois Road, No. 80, but they were not finished by fall.
Bridges
Nadina Bridge, No. 89, at the west end of Francois Lake, was replaced by
a glue-laminated span. Buck Creek Bridge, No. 110, on the Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway, was replaced by a steel-stringer span.
Ferries
M.V. "Jacob Henkel" on Francois Lake was able to operate all winter due to
the mild weather. Service was suspended for approximately three weeks in the
spring for engine overhaul and general repairs.
Snow-removal
Snowfall was lighter than usual, and ploughing costs consequently were less.
However, the mild weather called for above normal sanding.
Prince Rupert District
Roads
Maintenance.—All travelled roads in this district were maintained to an
adequate standard throughout the year without undue difficulties.
 REGIONAL REPORTS I 93
Prior to paving on Highway No. 16, considerable improvement to drainage
facilities was obtained by installing twenty-eight additional culverts. Chemical
control of brush proved to be satisfactory and economical. Two thousand feet of
new guard-rail were erected at the summit and old guard-rail maintained.
The Queen Charlotte City-Towhili Road continued to show improvement
through additional gravelling, widening and straightening of 2 miles, brushing, and
replacing 7 miles of plank road with gravel.
Construction.—The Port Edward-Cassiar Cannery Road was completed, with
1.3 miles of new construction being undertaken during the year.    Gravel for this
section and for the preceding year's work was obtained by quarrying and crushing
solid rock.
Bridges
All bridges were inspected and received appropriate attention. Only one
bridge was completely renewed.
Buildings
Port Clements garage was rewired, furnace installed, tower and water-storage
tank erected, and various minor improvements made.
Snow-removal
Snowfall was lighter throughout the district than was the case during the
previous year. No difficulty was experienced in this phase of our operations. Ice-
control in the Prince Rupert area was improved, and expenditures reduced as a
result of greater dependence upon the use of rock salt in the place of calcium
chloride.
Skeena (East) District
Roads
Maintenance.—Normal maintenance was carried out on all roads. The district
forces started a programme of major gravelling and improvements on secondary
roads. The standard of 15 miles of road was raised to a 24-foot top with a minimum 6-inch gravel surface.
Construction.—Reconstruction of 3.5 miles of the Northern Trans-Provincial
Highway between Prince Creek and Boulder (West) Creek was completed, except
for surfacing gravel.
A large quantity of surfacing gravel was placed on the Northern Trans-Provincial Highway between Kitsequecla and Price Creek.
On recommendation of the Regional Materials Engineer, 42 inches of pit-run
gravel were placed on the subgrade at Boulder Creek (East) reconstruction.
Snow-removal
Snow conditions were lighter than average. Frequent thaws resulted in serious
icing conditions and a much larger programme than usual of road sanding.
Bridges
Necessary maintenance was carried out on all bridges. Boulder Creek (West)
Bridge was constructed at end of day-labour project, Engman Bridge was reconstructed, and Four Mile Bridge was replaced by a 48-inch culvert.
Ferries
The ferries operated normally. Both cable towers at Cedarvale Ferry were
reconstructed and necessary minor repairs carried out.
 I 94 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1960/61
Skeena (West) District
Roads
District roads were maintained in good condition throughout the year.
Spring break-up was fairly light, and road restrictions were not as severe nor
lasted as long as the previous fiscal year. Restrictions were imposed on March 18th,
and lifted on April 21st.
All gravel roads were improved and many worn-out sections regravelled.
Signs were maintained in good order and brought up to date.
Extensive patching and maintenance of pulvimix section of Northern Trans-
Provincial Highway west was carried out.
Effective weed-spraying was carried out on all main roads.
A slide at Kitimat on Highway No. 25 received major work. Drain-pipes and
perforated pipes were installed, and fill replaced.
Bridges
Major repairs were carried out on two bridges, and one was rebuilt from chords
up.   One was replaced by an 80-foot Bailey bridge.
Repairs were carried out on thirty-four bridges, and ten bridges were painted.
All bridges were brushed out underneath.
Ferries
Ferries at Usk and Copper were successfully operated during the season. Boat
service was supplied from December to April.
Snow-removal
Snowfall was not as heavy as the previous year, but constant freezing and
thawing necessitated a heavy sanding programme.
South Peace River District
With the exception of a heavy snow-storm in late May, 1960, resulting in
floods and a heavy rain-storm in June, very favourable weather conditions were
experienced during the year.
Snow-removal was unusually easy due to the mild winter and below average
snowfall. Severe icy conditions did occur over short periods during the winter
months.
Ideal weather conditions prevailed during the construction season. Major
day-labour projects were in progress on the John Hart Highway. A section 10.5
miles long was reconstructed on the John Hart Highway in the Sundance Lake
area from Mile 202.0 to Mile 212.5. This section was constructed to a good standard, but additional base gravel is required before paving. Eighteen miles of base
preparation work was completed on the John Hart Highway from Arras to 2 miles
west of Groundbirch. Seventeen miles of main highway on Road No. 3, Rolla to
Clayhurst, was shaped and gravelled. A total of 24.5 miles of district side-roads
were cleared, grubbed, and high-graded, with culverts installed. Eighteen miles of
dirt side-roads were gravelled. Improvements to side-roads were made on school-
bus routes and roads serving main farming areas.
Nine bridges were replaced in the district by culverts and fill. Five bridges
were replaced on the John Hart Highway, and the remaining four were replaced
on side-roads.    Moberly Bridge, No.  83, was reconstructed during the winter

 I 96 HIGHWAYS REPORT, 1960/61
An extensive programme of weed and brush control was carried out on the
John Hart Highway and on side-roads in farming areas. Approximately 270 miles
of right-of-way was sprayed on right-of-way widths ranging from 66 to 200 feet.
Highway signing was revamped in the district, but more improvements are
needed.
Considering all phases of our work, the year 1960-61 could be described as
successful.

  REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER I 123
REPORT OF THE DEPARTMENTAL COMPTROLLER
The following pages present the financial report of the Department of Highways.
For the period under review, the total gross expenditure was $94,451,690.07,
which sum represents an increase of $18,400,000 over the preceding fiscal year.
This expenditure involved the handling of approximately 130,000 vouchers, and in
addition approximately 50,000 debit notes and requisitions were processed by the
personnel of this Branch.
In a plan designed to reduce administrative problems inherent in a large organization, the primary steps were taken to centralize certain accounting offices. The
Headquarters Regional Office, located in Victoria, was combined with Headquarters
Accounts to form one accounting unit. In addition, the accounting records for the
Fernie District were moved and combined with Cranbrook, and a similar move was
made from New Westminster to North Vancouver.
