Norman Wells loves the Road Badger
Maintenance costs dramatically reduced
The Town of Normal Wells in the Northwest Territories tested the Road Badger on 12.5 km of their road network. Roads in their region are regularly subjected to extreme conditions and are extremely costly to maintain.
The crew that tested the Road Badger in Normal Wells was highly impressed with the machine, which reduced their road maintenance costs by more than 50%. One of the most significant things they noted was how much gravel the Road Badger was able to recover. It costs them $24,000 per kilometre to apply new gravel, plus the cost of dust suppression and other binding agents.
With Road Badger, their overall cost was $10,000 per kilometre.
