Over the past two decades, recycling and maintenance have become key words in the road and highway industry. To a great extent, this is because of the high price of oil, which has made rebuilding roads and highways very costly.

This has led to new developments in highway equipment and placed a good deal of emphasis on recycling. The equipment list at the end highlights some of the newer developments in highway equipment.
