Bridge over River was completed
1927: The bridge over the Boyne River, between Gladstone and Miriam Vale, is now completed and ready for traffic. It is a credit to the Calliope Shire clerk, Mr Rudd, who organised the work, and carried it through to a successful conclusion. Already a decided increase in motor traffic is noticeable. The bridge is a substantial structure, quite capable of carrying the traffic for many years. It is to be hoped that efforts will be made by the motoring public to have a similar bridge put over the Calliope River on the Rockhampton side of our town.
1939: The death of Mr Angelo Crosisca which was reported from Brisbane, removes one of the Port Curtis district’s pioneer horsemen. Deceased who was aged 60 years was the son of Mr George Crosisca, one of the earliest residents on the Calliope goldfield, and followed the occupation of saddler with another pioneer, Mr Harry Hawthorne. In latter years, Mr Crosisca was known as one of the district’s best drovers, bringing cattle to Gladstone meatworks.
1952: The Executive Council has granted the Gladstone Town Council Treasury loan of £837 ($1674) and a subsidy of £243 ($486) for a bitumen reseal and widening job on the causeway connecting Yarroon and Kent Sts.
