SHIRE'S BUGBEAR Road Construction and Upkeep Forbes Alclermau Emphatic Some idea of the magnitude of ; shire road problems and their at- ' tendant stupendous difficulties .'.■was-,given by the returning Pre sident of the Local Government . Association, Mr. George Wilson, of Forbes, in an interesting and informative review at tl'e recent annual convention. Aid. Wilson stated that the h-s , tory of shire taxation showed that in 11910 all rates amounted to £423,000, [in 1917, to £091,000, and in 1927 to £1,598,000. Practically the whole of | the general funds of shires went in road construction and upkeep, and the greater part of money raised by loan went the same way. The increase in the figure men ~ --tioned .was a striking indication of the efforts made by the shires - to provide jroads suitable for , moderi) traffic. The increase in road expenditure must be attri buted to the fact that tjhe shires were doing more road work or work of more expensive charact er. > The Main Roads B...
