Management Solutions for Permanent Haul Roads


We offer a total road management system which has been refined over the past 40 years and has been proven to yield the most productive haul roads at the lowest life-cycle cost.

Our exclusive bitumen and polymer products are specifically designed to bind and stabilise in-situ wearing course materials on permanent haul roads.

We offer tailored solutions for permanent and heavy hauling roads. Furthermore, our unique maintenance system is designed to ensure that the on-going road quality is optimised and therefore the available benefits maximised.

Our opencast permanent haul roads maintenance system comprises of:

  • Sweeping for dust control, contamination and loose material on the treated surface
  • Maintenance application of product to control dust and eliminate water ingress into the surface
  • Skimming of the treated surface with a grader to remove heavy contamination and loose material
  • Re-scarifying of the running surface to maintain the integrity of the sealed layer and to retain adequate surface texture properties
  • Pothole repairing
  • Repairing of failed sections of road
  • Repairing of damaged sections of road

Benefits of using Dust-A-Side’s permanent haul road management solutions:

  • 90% operational dust reduction
  • Over 90% water savings
  • Safer roads due to improved visibility
  • Operational cost savings and efficiencies due to the reduced need for water bowsers
  • Increased productivity through faster cycle times (up to 30% reduction in rolling resistance)
  • Less wet-weather delays due to faster road drying times, improved wet-weather trafficability and fewer washouts
  • Lower initial construction costs when building new roads
  • Operational cost savings through a reduced need for graders and other road maintenance equipment, as well as regular replenishment of surface wearing course material
  • Reduction in fuel consumption of 5% (on average)
  • Improved tyre life and equipment component life
  • Safer haulage conditions due to the reduced likelihood of uncontrolled vehicle movements
  • Reduced road roughness, leading to lower maintenance costs for mobile equipment and health and safety benefits for operators
