Gravel Road School

Money for infrastructure maintenance has become a scarce commodity in recent years. Doing more with less is the new method of operation. Nowadays it is vital that our operators are as well trained and knowledgeable as possible because they are our front line resources who can turn a bad situation into a good one as long as they have been provided with the tools and know how to do so. The material necessary to rectify a problem is often in-situ, but it is all too often spread out. But it is not just the operators who must be up-to-date; it is also the supervisors as well as their bosses. A properly maintained gravel road is a positive reflection on the entire organization and by being able to do so with fewer resources shows the tax payers that their money is being well managed. But this can only be accomplished with comprehensive, on-going training at all levels within the organization.
