The Big Bend road has been under construction for several years. The agreement to build that section of the trans-Canada highway was made in 1929. A few years later, in 1935, the agreement was enlarged to extend the mileage which will be constructed by the federal government, so that it now covers the mileage from Golden to Revelstoke. The provincial government makes no contribution to that work; it is built wholly at the expense of the federal government. The other road is also being built under an agreement with the provincial government. So that these two are outside the category of tourist projects recommended by the province.
