Road construction and dimensions

The graphic below illustrates the dimensions used in the construction of Tweedsmuir Camp's main road. According to Canadian War Diaries, hardcore (comprising tons of flint stone aggregate) for the road base was delivered via Milford Station where it was transferred from rail wagons onto military vehicles by the 'Pioneer Corps'.

In this photograph the yellow arrow points to one of the flint stones used to firm up the ground, and the red arrow to the kerb. Concrete poured onto the stones made a solid road surface. Careful scrutiny of the concrete surface reveals the texture left behind by softwood shuttering.
