Handbook of road technology, volumes 1 and 2

International in scope, this book embraces all aspects of urban and rural road technology. The fully revised third edition adds the author's last decade of experience in the management, planning, construction and design of roads in various countries to the theoretical basis of the earlier editions. Volume 1 looks at the important procedures involved in the construction of roads, from road planning policies and design considerations to the selection of materials and the building of roads and bridges. Volume 2 offers insights into road operating environments that include driver behaviour, traffic flow, and lighting and maintenance, and assesses the cost, economics and environmental impact of road use. The third edition includes the latest technological advances in the field and is designed for use by for students and professionals in transport planning, engineering and economics.
