FPInnovations continues to develop resources and best practices for equipment operators, construction contractors and field supervisors for building high performance resource roads.
“Our members are asking for information in alternative formats to reports that can be easily shared amongst their staff and contractors. In response, we have begun to produce short videos that focus on a specific aspect of resource road construction and maintenance,” explains Mark Partington, researcher at FPInnovations.
“We have recently completed videos on roadside brushing techniques and road drainage and are working on additional videos for topics such as road compaction, building roads across wetlands and culvert installations,” adds Partington.
The following video, “Road Drainage”, presents the best management practices for water management and drainage which can prolong road life and reduce maintenance costs.
This other video, “Roadside Brushing”, presents the best management practices for roadside brushing operations, a review of available equipment and vegetation control methods.
The videos are also available on FPInnovations’website:
A French version will soon be available.
