Heavy haul roads and access roads leading to and from areas such as mine operations, wind farms, oil drilling sites and landfills are subject to continuous heavy traffic resulting in severe deterioration if left untreated. Not only are there costs to maintaining these roads on a regular basis, but safety issues may also arise from poorly maintained roads.
Because of their ability to stabilize weak subgrades and reinforce roadway structures, geogrids, geotextiles and other geosynthetic materials can increase the performance and longer-term stability of haul roads and provide a smoother running surface.
