SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE Clearance of Deck [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 8 October 1930
SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE Clearance of Deck Early., on Monday morning an interesting happening took place when the White Star Liner, the Ceramic, passed under the centre .portion of the 'deck framework of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. -.The masts of the Ceramic are 162 feet . above water fevel and as the distance from highwater ;,marlc 'to tthe underside of the deck of the '..Sydney ..Harbour Bridge. is 172 feet, the vessel . cleared ' the. 'framework comfortably. It will be remembered that before the pro ject was designed and the clearance for masts was being discussed, the Ceramic\s mast', being the highest then to enter the Port of Sydne3r, was taken as a basis. Since, that time, how . ever, five new Orient liners have appeared - with masts 165 feet above water level, but even these would pass under the bridge comfortably. The comparison of clearances of the Har bour Bridge with other large bridges' of the world shows, the Firth of Forth Bridge to « have a headway of 150' feet and four ...

AUSTRALIAN TIMBER RESOURCES [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 8 October 1930
AUSTRjALIAN TIMBER RESOURCES . . I.n reviewing the Australian timber resources recently the Chairman of. the Victorian Forestry Commission . expressed the need for economy . in ,the use and ' preparation of timber, thc - average recovery of sawn timber from a moun tain ash log being 46 per cent., the remainder' ibeing .utterly lost. / In- contrast with this' position Finland, utilised 94 per cent', of jthe waste, chiefly as wool cellulose. The co-operation of. forestry author ? ities with master . builders, architects and engi neers was necessary in order to .eliminate, waste. Tn balancing thc advantages of hardwoods and softwoods, too little attention was given to the superiority of the. hardwoods in strength and durability,' which should secure them preference. Such timbers as mesJsmate and blue gum properly seasoned and treated with ? preservatives - should be : more; widely Tused as Softwoods than jarrah and red- guih';as street paying blocks; ..
