This slide shows a schematic plan for the central area of Canberra drawn up by Walter Burley Griffin in March 1915 to indicate road, rail and waterway levels.

In October 1913, Burley Griffin had been employed as the Federal Capital Director of Design and Construction by the Department of Home Affairs, to further assist with the creation and development of Canberra.

This amended plan shows some variations to his Preliminary Plan and was requested by the Minister, who was seeking plans that would enable them to proceed with the construction of Canberra.
