Description: Causes of road failure can be Seasonality of road strength, High volumes of traffic versus heavy loads, Heavy loads bend the roads, Lots of traffic, Seasonally weak materials, Poor drainage, Passage of time – cumulative damage. Get details on Fatigue damage, Cumulative damage and Seasonality of road strength. Get details on how Effect of gas well drilling on thick roads built with good materials and how gas well drilling can do significant damage on weak roads.
