    Over the last 30 years, the forest industry in Eastern Canada has undergone a radical transformation, from a model where larger forestry businesses operated their own production equipment to a model where harvesting, transport, and forest road construction are awarded to contractors. This change in strategy on part of the large corporations has created new start-up Author: Étienne St-Jean, Luc LeBel. 2 The Public Inquiry stage for a road scheme may require significant additional design work and major changes to design which make it difficult to produce accurate cost estimates before a Public Inquiry. 3 The biggest increases occur in the construction costs due to: n inflation in construction costs which is higher than. Forestal Arauco, a leading forestry company from Chile, adopted ABCDust´s soil stabilization to reduced road materials by 40% and dust control cost.

An assessment of the impacts of road construction on the environment must be conducted before road construction to minimize the degree of these impacts. In previous decades, most forest road design criteria was based on accessing timber harvesting sites with the lowest cost possible incurred.

Forest roads are a necessary element for accessing forestry resources, but their impact on the environment can be significant. Forest roads can cause a variety of impacts on local wildlife that may lead to extirpation: facilitating the spread of invasive organisms, causing death or harm by vehicle strikes, and changing the behavior of animals to their by: 6.
