  • Function / Content
    The Central Roads Board, the first agency concerned with the establishment of main roads and bridges, 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 Department of Railways and Roads (VA 2875) succeeded the Department of Roads and Bridges (VA 2694) in 1872 when the Secretary of the Department of the Railways also became the Secretary of the Department of Roads and Bridges.

    This series records advances made and received by the Department to and from District Road Engineers for payments for labour and materials and for ongoing administrative expenses of the Department such as wages and salaries.

  • Recordkeeping System
    Entries are made in chronological order for both receipts and disbursements. Separate folios are allocated to District Road Engineers.
