The study of the fouundations of a structure built in a programme of rural road construction and maintenance are described. Those roads brought together a large number of communities which were isolated up to now. This took the form of close cooperation between the federal government and the rural communities, the latter supplying the labour force that had been out of work until then, hence minimum mechanization. The government, on request from the communities analyzed possibilities and priorities as a function of socio-economic variables such as the number of pavement. (TRRL) of work and lack of community services. The same data were used to assess the effects of construction and use of regional labour force. Once built, the structure was handed over to the community. In this way over 50000 km of roads were built during the last five years.
