In some cases, a vehicle may need to get to a location that is not heavily trafficked, or where there aren’t any paved roadways or paths. In these cases, access roads offer the perfect means of entry for many different types of vehicles. Because of their limited use and temporary nature, access roads are often pretty rudimentary, with nothing more than some gravel paving the way. Unfortunately, these makeshift solutions open the door to serious erosion damage. One solution that has been successfully implemented for access roads is cable concrete. There are a variety of advantages that this method offers in many different applications:
- Versatility: The reason why cable concrete can be used effectively in so many different contexts is because of its unique design that allows it to be arranged in innumerable different ways. Whether it’s being used for a boat ramp or for construction pathways, cable concrete is installed in such a way that it accommodates the project perfectly.
- Durability: Even though cable concrete can be used as a temporary solution for erosion control on sites like access roads, the material itself can withstand significant force and stress. Even when it is used by heavy equipment and construction machinery, cable concrete stays in place and provides a safe pathway for vehicles of all sizes.
- Cost: One of the main reasons why so many people are utilizing cable concrete is because of its low price tag. It is a very durable and reliable method of erosion control, but it is also more cost-effective than traditional pavement and other erosion control methods.
The benefits when it comes to access roads
Access roads are not generally very highly trafficked, but it is still important that they are able to be utilized safely and effectively so that vehicles can reach remote locations and work sites. Because access roads might not get a significant amount of use, and because they are often only in use temporarily, it might not make economic sense to invest in completely new pavement. Unfortunately, an access road that isn’t paved at all or is only reinforced with something like gravel offers little stability, and is therefore far more likely to be damaged due to erosion or heavy use. Cable concrete is the perfect solution for access roads since it offers stability and erosion resistance in a versatile and affordable manner.
