Everybody travels, whether it be to work, play, shop, do business, or simply visit people. All foodstuffs and raw materials must be carried from their place of origin to that of their consumption or adaptation, and manufactured goods must be transported to the marketplace and the consumer. Historically, people have travelled and goods have been moved: (1) by road, i.e. by walking and riding, using humans and various beasts to carry goods or to pull sleds, carts, carriages and wagons, and (since the late 19th century) using cycles and motor vehicles such as cars, buses and lorries; (2) by water, i.e. using (since early times) ships and boats on seas, rivers and canals; (3) by rail, i.e. initially using animals (in the early 19th century) and then steam-, oil- or electric-powered locomotives to pull passenger carriages and goods wagons; and (4) by air, i.e. using airships and aeroplanes (in the 20th century).
Highways is a comprehensive textbook on all aspects of road engineering. This new edition, written by a team of acknowledged experts in the field, teams up with Transport Planning and Traffic Engineering to become a worthy successor to Coleman O’Flaherty’s classic ‘Highway Engineering’ set. This fourth edition covers road location and plans, roadwork materials, surface and subsurface moisture control, pavement design and construction, thickness design of bituminous and concrete pavements and road maintenance and rehabilitation. The content has been expanded and thoroughly updated to take into account new developments in the subject, making it essential reading for students of civil engineering.
