Operational requirements

Detailed information is given on size, grade, drainage and maintenance of haulage roads, skid tracks and landings.

General rules are provided on felling and skidding. As a rule directional felling is to be applied.

While most of the operational requirements proved to be applicable under Fijian conditions, some revisions appeared to be necessary, e.g. on grades for skid tracks which should be more stringent. The code presently allows 25° (46%) under exceptional conditions.
