This slide shows a plan and three section drawings of roads for the wider area of the circuit around Kurrajong Hill, as proposed by Walter Burley Griffin.

On the upper right-hand side of the slide, Camp Hill is visible.

The contour lines on the plan, as well as the measurements on the section drawings, reveal that this site was steep and hilly.

Walter Scott Griffiths wanted to show that Burley Griffin’s plan to build roads that cut through Kurrajong Hill would necessitate a lot of excavation on that site.
