A STUDY OF EFFECT OF WIDTH OF ROAD CARRIAGEWAY ON FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT DESIGN

A study of transverse distribution of heavy-duty traffic on multi-lane carriageways in India discusses the effect of carriageway width on flexible pavement thickness. Unlike multi-lane highways in western countries, fast-moving, heavy traffic is said to dominate the inner lanes leaving the outer lanes for slow-moving bicycles, animal-drawn traffic and pedestrians. The study considers appropriate values of traffic intensity for flexible pavement design purposes and indicates possible savings in construction costs. /TRRL/
