Description of this SeriesDescription of this Series
  • How to use the Records
    The annual reports have been bound in a single volume, in chronological order.

  • Function / Content
    These records were created by Country Roads Board in response to the requirements set out in section 73 of the Country Roads Act 1912, which states, in part:

    "The Board shall as soon as is practicable after the termination of each year present a report to the Minister setting forth its proceedings, the permanent works constructed and the roads maintained during such year... "

    Each report begins with one or more forewords by the Chairman, Board Members and Chief Engineer, commending the report to the Minister responsible. The reports include details of income and expenditure, contracts awarded and roads constructed or evaluated. There are also cross-section diagrams of roads and photographs, mostly of roads under construction.

    Each report has a list of contents in the first few pages.

  • Recordkeeping System
    The reports are arranged in chronological order.
