|Design criteria for all haul roads
|Foster Yeoman has implemented a package of
improvements that has transformed its record of
workplace transport at this famous quarry near Oban.
In particular, comprehensive design criteria have been
developed for haul roads, that include:
creation of bunding
use of mobile floodlights and snow poles with
installation of colour-coded reflective lights to
indicate the edges of the roads and junctions
purchase of a grader to spread aggregate onto snow and remove loose material on corners
investment in drainage and culverts alongside roads
creation of roundabouts on major junctions.
Amongst the other major projects on site are improvements to the visibility and maintenance checks on
Land Rovers and competency tests for all Land Rover drivers.
