TECHNICAL DAYS DEVOTED TO ROADS IN CORSICA - PART 2 - LIGHTLY-TRAFICKED ROADS

JOURNEES TECHNIQUES DE LA ROUTE DE CORSE - DEUXIEME PARTIE - LES ROUTES ECONOMIQUES

This article comments on papers dealing specifically with the constructional and administrative problems of lightly-trafficked roads. The first paper by remillon stresses the drawbacks of applying to lightly-trafficked roads pavement design and strengthening methods used for heavily-trafficked roads. Proposals are put forward for the extensive utilization of local materials with a view to realizing large savings in construction costs. The second report by ceintrey recommends the use of non-conventional materials for the construction of low-cost roads, and exphasizes the need for close cooperation between laboratory and in-situ tests when developing new construction techniques. The last two papers by cartier and lanore outline the experience of both authors in the administrative aspects of lightly-trafficked road construction in two departments in france (morbihan and doubs). Discussions of the papers are appended. /TRRL/
