Works completed, 







The work is finished, except for 

some rock excavation in the bed of the harbour, which the contractors have failed to deal with. 
The Board have ter¬ minated the contract, with a view to arranging for the exe¬ cution of the unfinished work. 
The work has been commenced, and is proceeding satisfac¬ torily. 
Considerable progress has been made with the works, which will, it is anticipated, be com¬ pleted in the summer or autumn of 1910. 
In addition to repairing the da¬ 

mage done to the pier head in January, 1908, a further ex¬ tension of the pier was sanc¬ tioned in September, and the work is now in hands.
