Development Services

Development Services

  • Public Works
  • Lands and Survey
  • State Forest
  • Iron and Steel

The Public Works Department carries out the construction of public buildings, railways, hydro-electric works, page 166irrigation works, and major road works and, through the Main Highways Board, supervises much of the roading work of local authorities. The Railways Department might be included in this category, since railways have always been regarded as a means of promoting development. The Iron and Steel Department is included here because it is in the developmental stage; later it may become a trading department.
