The Manchester College of Science and Technology was created by Royal Charter in 1955. The former Municipal College of Technology has been absorbed in the new College and the Royal Charter also preserves the existing relationship with the University of Manchester under which the Faculty of Technology was established in the College in 1905.
THE principal highway authority in Ceylon is the Public Works Department, a direct descendant of the Corps of Royal Engineers and responsible for some 14,000 miles of motorable roads. The Department is today continuing its long tradition for progressive
development despite handicaps imposed by a shortage of experienced local engineers. Although there are shortcomings arising from present day traffic conditions and the requirements of the Government’s post-war development programme, Ceylon’s highway system has been said to be among the finest of any Far Eastern country. When it is considered that many of the wrought iron and steel bridges, constructed in the pre-motoring era, and now requiring replacement, are at least SO and sometimes approaching
100 years old it may fairly be said that they have “earned their keep.”
