THE CONSTRUCTION OF RURAL ROADS BY THE USE OF AGRICULTURAL EQUIPMENT

COSTRUZIONE DI STRADE RURALI CON L'IMPIEGO DI MEZZI MECCANICI DI TIPO AGRICOLO

This article describes methods by which farming undertakings can improve and build their own service roads by the use of agricultural machinery. The process basically is the cement stabilization of earth roads, and details of mix design and pavement thickness are given. Some recommendations are included, useful to farmers in the application of their own machinery to this purpose. The article is based on the construction of a rural road of soil-cement in Toledo, Spain, where apart from existing farm machinery available on the spot, only a vibrating roller (towed by a farm tractor) was used.
