Full description

Lieutenant E.C. Wilford was appointed Surveyor of Roads and Bridges from 1 April 1827 and Assistant Surveyors were also appointed on that and subsequent dates. Before April the Inspector of Roads and Bridges superintended the road parties (see NRS 995). By a despatch dated 26 May 1829 the Secretary of State directed that the Department of Roads and Bridges be discontinued as a distinct department and that it be considered as a branch of the Surveyor General's Department. The change was made at the end of 1829. During 1830 letters relating to roads and bridges appear in NRS 1001.

In a letter to the Surveyor General dated 4 December 1830 the Colonial Secretary directed that even though the Roads Department was part of the Surveyor General's Department "this branch of the service will ... be carried on as a distinct department ... Assistant Surveyor Nicholson will transmit the usual reports direct to the Colonial Secretary with whom he will communicate whenever he may require instructions".

During December 1830 letters addressed to Nicholson as head of the Roads Department will be found in the same book as the previous letters to the Surveyor General (NRS 1001). In January 1831 a new book was opened for correspondence with the Roads Department. In a letter to the Surveyor General from the Colonial Secretary dated 19 March 1832 the Road Branch was placed under the inspection of the Surveyor General. Letters relating to roads will be found in NRS 1001 from this date.
