Woodlands County Council this week approved proposed changes to their Gravel Policy 3205.
The changes are updates to the original policy that was passed in 1994. The policy now reflects the actual aggregate of gravel to county roads.
Woodlands County Mayor Ron Govenlock says the updates are a reflection of the County’s commitment to improving the roads.
Major changes to the gravel policy include the use of 3/4″ gravel vs 7/8,” application rates of 250 tonnes vs 315 tonnes, and using kilometres instead of miles.
There is also the addition of approaches being re-graveled when road graveling is being completed, the removal of all reference of secondary highways from the policy, and the removal of all reference to road construction application rates.
