GUNLAKE’S DRIVER EDUCATION INITIATIVE
Over the last few weeks, Gunlake has been educating all truck drivers accessing the quarry to make the roads safer for all users.
This involved communicating with employees, contractors and customers. Gunlake provided them with driver information packs on rules, road speeds, signage to look out for and the correct entry/exit points from the highway.
Drivers have again been advised to reduce their speed to 80km/h on Brayton Road and Red Hills/ Bypass Road, even though general traffic speed is signposted as 100km/h.
Drivers were reminded about the appropriate use of engine brakes on all transport routes.
The consequences of non- compliance with Gunlake’s driver behavior requirements were also outlined.
This process is part of more frequent and thorough communication between Gunlake and drivers, aiming to benefit local residents, school buses, community traffic and wildlife.
