Rock through windrow lands on roadway

A POORLY-constructed windrow at a New South Wales open cut coal mine meant a large rock fell onto a roadway after a haul truck dumped its load.

The catch windrow at the foot of the dump was not constructed to the specified design.

The haul truck reversed onto a waste dump and, as it tipped its load, the large rock rolled down over the edge, breaching the catch windrow at the foot of the dump.
