PORT MELBOURNE'S STREETS. New Steam Road-Roller Inspection. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 10 January 1914
PORT MELBOURNE'S STREETS: New Steam Road-Roller inspection. Up to the present Port Melbourne has been at a disadvantage in the matter of its roads. Lacking a steam road-roller of their dwn, the council had to depend on hiring one from some of the neighbouring coun cils. This meant a cost of £150 to £160 each year, but it also meant and this was the serious drawback to the position--that Port Melbourne was able to engage the roller at the least favorable period of the year. During the time best suited for im proving the roads, of course, coun cils owning the rollers employed them within their own territory. Port Melbourne had perforce to await their opportunity, which came at a less favorable season. This state of affairs will soon come to an end. In the course of a few days the Port will possess a steam road-roller of its own. WTith the object of seeing the new purchase put throuph its paces a de putation of the Council, consisting of Cr. A. L. Page, Mayor, Cr. O. Sin clair, and Mr....
