 1966 saw another major change in the way the Department of Highways produced their maps.  A new folding system was incorporated where locating communities on the map became much easier.  The back cover had an "Instructions For the Use of Map" area and small key maps were included as well.

Indexing
The accordion - like folding facilitated easy opening of the map to the specific area of interest, instead of "wrestling" with a larger map - looking on the back side at the index of cities, towns and villages and then flipping it over to look for the co-ordinates in the columns and then lining them up for the correct location.  With the new system, the "page" was opened at the correct number and then the sides were scanned for the correct letter and number.
