Summary
  • Bullocks were used to pull the heavy roller only once as they proved to be difficult to manouvre in such steep terrain. They were replaced by horses which proved more appropriate for the task
  • The road was constructed largely by hand with the use of horse drawn scoops and rollers. The men moved camp throughout the construction staying out through the week, returning home on weekends.--Information provided with photograph
