Road design guidelines ensure that the development and maintenance of the physical operating environment adequately considers the experience of mobile equipment operators (controllers) and equipment type.

Scheduled and damage repair works are included in the required activities of the Road Construction crew(s) on site – with appropriate equipment to maintain segregated roadways

Mine Design engineering guidelines asks the key questions:

  1. If truck haulage is considered, are the ramps designed to accommodate truck haulage?
  2. Can they be loaded and have adequate turning and dumping areas or are additional excavations required?
  3. What distance must equipment travel for repairs and refuelling?
  4. Is the loss of production opportunity less costly than the cost of establishing service and refuelling areas?
  5. Can we use satellite systems?
Site road design guidelines provide site specifications for:
  • Grade
  • Curvature
  • Line of sight
  • Pavement shape
  • Surface material
  • Guideposts
  • Safety berms or windrows
  • Signs and barriers
  • Lighting
  • The installation of one way block lights for intersections and drifts

Road construction crews undertake required road maintenance tasks.
