The author discusses the increasing use of planing in road construction operations and its influence on maintenance techniques and particularly pavement recycling processes. The evolution in highway maintenance techniques, coupled with the increasing importance of the maintenance role, has been the reason for improvements and developments in planing techniques and equipment. Further progress is likely including developments in planers, operationally and economically equal to requirements of full-depth reconstruction and hot in-plant recycling. The article concludes by describing planing equipment available and applications in maintenance operations. (TRRL)
