Re: : Rutways and Plateways in Australia

There was a rutway at the Maribyrnong Explosives Factory serving the nitroglycerine plant.  The vehicle ran on rubber tyres along ruts laid down in concrete.  Water was run along the ruts to prevent any sparks being generated which would, of course, had dire consequences should any be generated by static electricity.
