Gravel Roads Analysis
Gravel Roads Report
We utilised existing staff due to their extensive knowledge with regards to the local roads and their respective environments and asset management to create a data collection form. The information was collected on site and segments were created based on surface types. Where a roads characteristics changed a new segment was created.
Tracking and recording existing maintenance activities
Council undertook maintenance activities on their unsealed network. These activities are recorded in a maintenance management system from which data was used as part of the analysis.
The data was used to compare the overall condition of the road to the date of the last grade. It was established that their was no correlation between an improvement in the overall condition of an unsealed road and the time of the last grade.
The report was generated for internal use with recommendations for future changes in management techniques.
