THE POSSIBILITY OF USING TRACKED WAYS /TRAMWAYS/ OF PRECAST CONCRETE UNITS AS A STANDARD CONSTRUCTION FORM FOR FARM ROADS

SINCE 1959, TRACKED WAYS /TRAMWAYS/, I.E. STABILIZATION OF THE WHEEL TRACKS, ARE BEING INCREASINGLY USED IN SCHLESWIG- HOLSTEIN IN BUILDING THE AGRICULTURAL ROAD SYSTEM. THEY ARE STILL TOO NEW TO ALLOW OF AN EVALUATION OF THEIR RELIABILITY. THE DEVELOPMENT OF TRAMWAY CONSTRUCTION IS ILLUSTRATED ON THE EXAMPLE OF THE STEINBERG RURAL DISTRICT. AS ROADS OF SUBSIDIARY IMPORTANCE /ACCOMMODATION ROADS/, THESE TRACKWAYS ARE SUFFICIENCTY DISTINGUISHABLE FOR ORDINARY ROAD TRAFFIC TO AVOID THEM. EXPERIENCE HITHERTO APPEARS TO INDICATE THAT STABILIZATION OF THE WHEEL TRACKS CAN BECOME A DECISIVE FACTOR IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF STANDARD CONSTRUCTION METHODS FOR AGGRICULTURAL ROADS. /FG/RRL/
