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.”
It is with deep regret we have to announce the death in Calcutta of Mr. James Moyes Jardine (Member), who was the Institution’s representative in India (Bengal). Mr. Jardine was born in Edinburgh in 1882, and was educated at George Heriot’s School and the Heriot Watt College.
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.
