Abstract : The article examines a method of combined protection of roads from snow drifts by using shields and trenches. Use of snow trenches reduces the number of shield repositionings and thus substantially cuts snow protection costs. Economic benefits from using combined protection is shown on the example of one of the roads in Novosibirskaya Oblast. Snow trenches are used in conjunction with other kinds of protection: tree strips, fences, and so on. (Author)
