Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    There is an alphabetical index at the front of the volume. The correspondence in this series is registered in VPRS 1116 Register of Outward Correspondence. The Records Description List should be consulted.

  • Function / Content
    The Central Road Board (VA 2803) was established circa March 1853 with responsibility for the formation, construction, improvement, management and maintenance of proclaimed main roads and bridges and for the co-ordination of the works undertaken by the District Road Boards. The primary officers were the Secretary, Treasurer and an Inspector-General of Roads. The Central Road Board was abolished on 1 January 1858 and succeeded by the Department of Roads and Bridges (VA 2964) which operated under the statutory control of the Board of Land and Works (VA 744).

    The volumes in this series consist of copies of the outward correspondence and memoranda from the Secretary of the Board. One volume has been used later for a Time Book (1860 1862), most probably in the succeeding agency, the Department of Roads and Bridges (VA 2964).

    VPRS 12653/P1 was previously registered as Units 8, 9 and 10 of VPRS 1122 Outward Registered Correspondence.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Correspondence is arranged in consecutive number order. The number prefixed with an S is the Branch Number and the other number is the General Number for the piece of correspondence. Alphabetical listings at the front of volumes provide an index to the addressees.

    The Time Book section is arranged in chronological order with employees signing in and out for each day.
