VTC is a part of right of way construction that keeps vehicles from tracking materials off the project site. It is typically placed at the entrances and exits to a project site. They are designed to remove materials such as sediment from the tires of a vehicle as it leaves the site. In addition, they can also help to stabilize the entrances and exits of the right of way project site.
There are several choices for a vehicle tracking pad available to you and your right of way construction project. The first is an aggregate VTC. This is the most commonly used type and can effectively remove sediment from tires as long as it remains properly maintained. The next option is actually another aggregate VTC, but it also includes equipment for washing tires. This adds the extra need for water, but if the area has persistent materials, the extra cleaning it provides can be an advantage. The third type is designed for smaller construction sites with little traffic in vegetated areas.
VTC and mud mat construction is important to keep the materials for any given site within that site. By cleaning the tires of sediment and other materials, you can prevent cross-contamination. The build-up of sediment can also cause flooding or kick up to damage cars in the street. When performing any kind of project, we want to make as minimal an impact to the people around us as possible, and these mats assist in achieving that goal.
