This haul road was next to a very dangerous highwall. Haul roads should not be located next to a highwall, if possible. Any time you put a haul road next to a highwall, you have to maintain that highwall so that nothing will fall from it. This wall would have to be scaled, cut back, and supported so that nothing could fall off, if you’re going to maintain the haul road next to the highwall. There was a fatality where one eight-inch-diameter rock fell from the top of a highwall. As the foreman drove past in a pickup truck, it went through the truck cab and struck the foreman in the head.
