About this event

Haul roads are an essential part of coal mine infrastructure and have special design issues due to the size of haulage vehicles that use the roads.

The presentation addresses design and upgrading part of an existing palm oil road; the crossing of 20 km of a soft peat area and over 30 km subject to annual flooding from the adjacent rivers.

Originally planned for a chip seal surface, the design was successfully changed to stabilised earth using existing local materials.

Road is designed for 180 tonnes loaded double bogie trucks conveying 5 Million tonnes coal per year. Coal stockpile designed for 300,000 tonne storage and loading to 8,000 tonne barges on the Musi River.
