Gravel Road School
Money for infrastructure maintenance has become a scarce commodity in recent years. Therefore, doing more with less is the new method of operation. Nowadays it is vital that our operators are as highly trained and knowledgeable as possible; they are our front line resources who are positioned to turn a bad situation into a good one as long as they have been provided with the proper tools and knowledge. But it is not just the operators who must be up-to-date, it is also the supervisors and their bosses.
