The basic principles of planning permanent works as descriptionbed on page 278 stress the need for considering future expansion and avoiding features which may preclude subsequent developments. The Author rightly states that although deficiencies may be apparent their exact nature and extent must be established factually. Yet further on the statement is made '... an impartial study and not the acceptance of local opinion may be necessary...' The writer considers that in all cases an impartial study is essential and local opinion should never be relied upon although it should always be consulted. It is only by close observation on the spot coupled with the actual measurement of delays that efficient improvement can be planned.
