Haul Road Rehabilitation and Upgrades

Rehabilitation of main ramp using base of selected blasted waste rock

Once the design life of a haul road expires, or traffic volume and/or truck types change, a haul road rehabilitation or upgrade is indicated, to ensure the road continues to perform it’s design function –  safe, vehicle friendly and economic.

Re-design or rehabilitation will depend to a large extent on the existing subgrade, design layerworks and wearing course and the extent to which these meet the newly defined road-users needs, in terms of a category I, II or II road design.
