11What is the history of the area? Describe the topography, climate, seismic activity, flooding, erosion & collapse, tree roots & organic waste (must be removed), mining or oil activities, etc.
12Weather conditions expected during the time of installation? Temperature? Humidity? Winds? 7 day weather forecast?
13Purpose of road?
14Maximum weight of any vehicle using the road? Types of vehicles and/or equipment? Pivot areas for maneuvering the vehicles and / or equipment? Types of tire treads on vehicles?
15Availability of additional stone, fines, construction waste or mine waste?
16Availability of water at the site? If not at site, than how far in time and distance?
17If using salt water, what is the percentage of salt?
18Experience of the construction company doing the installation?
19Detail the installation equipment to be used.. Models? Weight? Condition? Capacity of the water truck? Is there a separate pump for pumping the AGB into the water truck? Provide details of the spray bar. Send pictures of the equipment.
20Size & experience of crew working the job?   Machine operators? Laborers? Supervisors?
21Will the road or area be top-sealed with AGB?
22Will the road or area have a wearing surface such as bitumen, chip-seal, asphalt or cement?
23Will the road remain open to traffic during the installation?
24Include photos of the site:
                               – Notes to the above –
*More information is available from Headquarters.
7a, 7b & 9Ideal soil configuration is 35% fines passing through a #200 sieve (75 micron in size). No rocks or stones exceeding 20% of the depth. Avoid rounded or polished particulates typically found in river sand and beach sand.*
8With clay there will be surface cracking after stabilizing. The clay-caused surface cracks must be filled and closed to prevent the ingress of water. Consider a wearing surface. Also consider filling with fines & topseal or make an AGB slurry.*
10When a road is stabilized the water will no longer penetrate the body of the road, as it did prior to stabilization. The lack of absorption increases the flow of water down or off of the road.   Without proper drainage, this flow can cause serious erosion at the sides of the road and on the top.
12If rain is predicted do not install. If humidity is high do not install because the soil dosed with the AGB & water mix will not release its moisture & not dry.
14This information will influence the recommended depth and density of AGB for the road or area.*
15AGB can be used with recycled materials and waste materials.* Local testing may be required.
174% salt content is the maximum salinity.   The quantity of AGB may need to be increased.
