The experience of constructing a road in a forest, which does not provide any headworks and is carried out by a dredge only, is considered. It allows to lower expenses for construction works.
Owing to the absence of stone road-building materials in the majority of forest regions of Russia a new design of a two-layer road covering from reinforced concrete slabs and the technology of its construction have been developed.
The comparison of the suggested technology of forest roads construction with existing domestic technologies and the Finnish one has shown its efﬁciency both in terms of money, and from the viewpoint of reduction of the number of necessary machines and equipment.
The technology suggested has passed industrial approbation on running logging enterprises.
