IT IS HOPED THAT AFRICA CAN AVOID THIS BY MAKING FULL USE OF THE ECONOMIC POSSIBILITIES OFFERED BY ROAD TRANSPORT AND BY ADOPTING DIFFERENT AXLE- BOGIE PRESSURES AND WEIGHTS MORE ADAPTED TO HER PARTICULAR NEEDS. DETAILED CONSIDERATION IS GIVEN TO THE VARIED ASPECTS OF THE PROBLEM INCLUDING RESEARCH CARRIED OUT PARTICULARLY IN SWEDEN AND THE U.S.A. /AUTHOR/
