Work began on Tuesday on the road from the Middle Road to the top of Peaked Hill, the contract having been awarded to R. W. Balam, Boston con­tractor, who is engaged in putting through several jobs on the Island. The road is to be surfaced, after the grading is completed, and will supply a government way to the observation post that is planned for the Island’s highest point.
According to the understanding, such an observation post will consist mere­ly of a small dugout or otherwise protected position, from which certain spotting and observation may be made to aid artillery fire from mainland batteries.
