A review is made of the maintenance problems on metal roads caused by present day traffic with details of one County's methods of providing class II roads in hill country. The slow progress in the elimination of metal road in New Zealand is lamented and suggests that emphasis should be placed on the additional cost to the nation resulting from the high running cost of vehicles on metal roads. By the continued application of research on dust laying additives the undesirable elements of metal roads could be reduced by the year 2000. Further development on the production of machinery to replace the roadman would allow maintenance funds to be spent on sealing additional lengths of road. /AUTHOR/
