ABSTRACT Sediment can be composed of all road elements. On soil roads, road surface erosion is generally the predominant source of sediment. The multifaceted impact of forest road construction on the environment is always a serious issue in terms of watershed management. Water quality of surface erosion caused by road construction and neglect, flow regime of streams, floods, formation of marshes, reduction of soil fertility and similar negative effects cause great economic losses and degradation of the landscape. The fact that the road routes travel along the valley floor or slope or pass through the ridges affects the sediment transport. The aim of this study was to investigate the road erosion and sediment models and the factors affecting them.
