Extension of Wharves

Extension of Wharves.

On the subject of further extension of the merchandise wharf, I am informed that your Board can do nothing without the concurrence of the Railway Commissioners, to whose approval all plans are subject, and who, I understand, insist on making their own plans for all extensions. Under such circumstances it s to be hoped that your Board may always see its way to agreeing with the proposals of the Commissioners for works which the Board find the money for.

Your Engineer has prepared a plan for extending the merchandise wharf as far as the staiths. The necessity for this extension has long been felt, and the Board gave me instructions to prepare plans for its construction in 1886.
