The Road System* Tanganyika Territory is situated on the East Coast of Africa, just south of the Equator, and has been administered by Great Britain under mandate from the League of Nations since 1918. About 360,000 square miles in area, the Territory possesses a road system which at present comprises 3,500 miles of trunk roads, 10,OOO miles of district roads, besides other unclassified native or private roads or tracks. All constructional and maintenance work on the trunk roads is carried out by the Public Works Department of the Tanganyika Government, with headquarters at Dar-es-Salaam, where the designs for all major structures are prepared. Other roads are built and maintained by local administrative officers of the Government. A.J. Mitchell

Sir,-In Mr. Bridges’ Paper on “Reinforced Concrete for Colliery Surface Plart,” published in your April issue he states “There are many difficulties which make piling expensive and very often impracticable, such as: obstruction by overhead wires and pipe lines to free movement of the piling frame; the necessity for keeping open certain wagon roads for coal wagons; and vibration and consequent disturbance of existing structures.”

Approximate Strut Formulae

ALTHOUGH the formulae of B.S.S. 449-1935, and the L.C.C. Code should now be used by the designer, the Rankine formula has, for certain purposes, stood the test of time since it was first evolved by Gordon, Schwarz, and Rankine about 1860. H.A. Warren

Underpinning and Foundation Work in Loose and Waterlogged Ground by Chemical Consolidation, Ground W

IN foundation work the problems involved are, the carrying capacity of the ground, the difficulties of reaching the chosen depths presented by the geological formations, possible disturbance by future work, and protection of adjacent shuctures during construction. H.J.B. Harding
