1 Forest Practices Code Transition Roads With Ron Davis Chief Engineer, MOF

2 Roads Road Changes Summary  Streamline process by removing joint approvals and most DM approvals  Move from process to results wherever possible through transition  Streamlining through consolidation by removing overlap and duplication

3 Roads What is the intent of the Changes  Move from rules to results wherever possible during the transition period

4 Roads Simplified Roads Cycle

5 Roads  Wherever professional design content has been specified by the joint practices board (engineers and foresters)  no professional content is specified in the Road Regulation  RLAD still must be prepared before road is constructed or modified  RLAD content requirements reduced:  MAP - location of road with stream or lake crossings Planning & Design Changes - RLAD Content

6 Roads  RLAD content requirements reduced:  results of visual and archeological assessments, where required  where roads cross unstable terrain, measures to provide stability (note: no terrain stability field assessment specified) Planning & Design Changes RLAD Content - continued

7 Roads  DM approval for RLAD required only in 3 circumstances  Work in riparian management areas, other than crossings  Within 100 m upstream of a known licensed community water supply intake  If crossing an unstable or potentially unstable area, where the licensee proposes measures that will not result in the least likelihood of landslides Planning & Design Changes Approvals

8 Roads  In any one of the 3 circumstances (potential high risk) licensee will submit RLAD for approval  Required content:  Map  results of visual and archeological assessments  Measures for unstable terrain  Rationale for proposed option Planning & Design Changes Approvals - continued

9 Roads  Establishes new peak flow criteria for bridges and culverts with a planned life of the structure at the site of up to 3 years (Q 10 ) Planning & Design Changes Drainage

10 Roads  Site preparation procedures reduced to stability result for most situations  Road surfacing requirements replaced by requirements to minimize sediment transport and provide for industrial level of user safety  Removed requirement for Construction Surveys Construction Changes

11 Roads  Revegetation -  no District Manager involvement  natural regeneration is a specified option Construction Changes - continued

12 Roads  Inspection frequency remains the same  Removed content of an Inspection Record and the need for a qualified inspector Maintenance / Inspection Changes Bridges & Major Culverts

13 Roads  Removed criteria for the schedule and frequency of inspections  Removed District Manager involvement in timing of work Maintenance / Inspection Changes Roads

14 Roads Deactivation Changes  One level of road deactivation - equivalent to permanent deactivation and now incorporates closure of the road by erecting a barricade  No requirement to prepare Deactivation Prescriptions except in unstable terrain  District Manager no longer approves Deactivation Prescriptions
