THE SELECTION AND USE OF FOREST ROAD BUILDING MATERIALS- A LITERATURE REVIEW

FIELD OBSERVATION OF SOME FOREST ROADS BY THE AUTHORS HAS PROVIDED SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON SOME SPECIFIC CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE PROBLEMS. THE AUTHORS NOTE THE READY AVAILABILITY OF PUBLISHED INFORMATION ON WELL ESTABLISHED PRINCIPLES OF ROAD CONSTRUCTION AND RECOMMEND ITS EXTENSION INTO THE CONSTRUCTION OF FOREST ROADS. THE AUTHORS ALSO RECOMMEND AN EVALUATION OF EXISTING ROADS TO DETERMINE THE PRACTICALITY AND MEANS OF IMPROVING THEM. THEY SUGGEST THAT BETTER USE OF EVEN INFERIOR MATERIALS CAN BE MADE THROUGH BETTER COMPACTION DRAINAGE, AND WITH SOME SOILS - STABILIZATING ADDITIVES. METHODS TO ALLEVIATE FROST ACTION ARE DISCUSSED. A MAJOR RECOMMENDATION IS THAT A DESIGN PROCEDURE FOR FOREST ROADS BE DEVELOPED. TO THIS END A SUGGESTED RESEARCH PROGRAM IS OUTLINED. /CGRA/
