SURFACE MINE HAULAGE ROAD DESIGN STUDY

The report recommends criteria for the design of safe surface mine haulage roads. Information relevant to road design at surface mine sites delineates vertical and horizontal alignment; subbase and surface materials; drainage; cross-slope, super-elevation; runaway vehicle protection; and road and vehicle maintenance criteria. An appendix is included which details the study methods used in compiling the final report information. A bibliography following the main text lists literature referenced for the report data and which is available as a valuable tool for use by individuals involved in haul road design.
