The design and construction or haul roads are a core part of our business, we have many years of experience in the heavy plant sector, due to this we are able to specialise in the design and construction of haul roads for heavy plant and other onsite vehicles. Providing a high-quality traversal surface and a design that meets safety regulations to our clients throughout the UK.

We’ve designed a number of heavy haul roads for a number of clients, for use in:

  • Moving heavy transformer equipment at power plants
  • Temporary haul roads for large construction projects
  • Transport of heavy equipment across sites
  • Haul roads for Quarry equipment and vehicle traversal

We understand that a haul road is not simply about getting heavy plant from point A to point B, there are numerous factors to take into consideration when designing an effective and safe haul road. We design our haul roads with viewing distances in mind, to ensure drivers have full view when rounding curves or cresting hills. We consider stopping distances and descending grades when designing intersections and junctions and we ensure adequate edge protection is included, to prevent heavy plant and ancillary vehicles from driving over unprotected edges. We also complete accurate structural calculations for haul road thickness, concrete strength and site gradients to ensure an effective haul road with effective drainage, which in turn improves the longevity of the haul road. Our diligent planning ensures our clients are provided with a finished haul road that best suits their individual project requirements.

Our concrete installation team are flexible, as we understand that maintaining site productivity is a top priority when large scale work is completed on site, and we pride ourselves on our flexibility in scheduling of work.

Permanent Haul Roads

Red Leaf Developments has a wealth of experience in the design and construction of permanent haul roads. Our expert design team will work with you to design a haul road that provides not only the required durability for site traffic, but that considers site safety. By taking into account site gradients, stopping distances and visibility our team can design a haul road that is effective and safe. We can also provide design and installation of wash-bays and access ramps. Our meticulous planning and installation ensure you have a haul road that is able to provide a sufficient traversal surface for heavy machinery that’s safe to both drivers and any pedestrians on site.

Temporary Access Roads

Using a range of heavy duty precast concrete products, Red Leaf Development can provide short term temporary haul roads, access roads and walkways for sites. The use of these products allows for a fast, cost efficient and highly configurable install of temporary haul roads, access routes and walkways. However, for some temporary haul roads and access routes, traditional haul road design and installation is necessary, Red Leaf Developments can provide the design and installation of a traditional temporary haul road. We can also provide a fast and efficient removal service once the haul road or access route has served its purpose on site.
