Chemin de halage et de contre-halage
Bien que les chevaux (ou les mariniers et leurs femmes) ne halent plus les bateaux depuis plusieurs décennies, on parle encore de chemins de halage pour désigner les chemins de service. Le chemin de contre-halage est situé sur la rive opposée au chemin de halage.

In mining, it's a road for empty trucks to return on--maybe your "fonderie" is part of a mining complex?
