Roads and highways - Roads and highways - The modern road: Since the beginning of the 20th century, as the automobile and truck have offered ever higher levels of mobility, vehicle ownership per head of population has increased. Road needs have been strongly influenced by this popularity and also by the mass movement of people to cities and thence to suburban fringes—a trend that has led to.

The work would also be useful as a course book for students of road design. Author Bio Wolfgang Kühn is a professor of transportation at the University of Leipzig, Germany, where his research has been in the field of road design, especially the application of modern design techniques to that field.

The second edition underwent a considerable expansion and. Road Construction Techniques. Modern road construction involves the removal of geographic obstacles, and the use of new construction materials that are far more improved and durable.

Rock and earth is removed by explosion or digging. Embankments, tunnels, and bridges are constructed, and then vegetation is removed by deforestation, if necessary. While the construction process still requires traditional skills, changes over recent decades today demand improved understanding of modern business, production and contractual practices.

The authors have responded accordingly and the book has undergone a thorough re-write, eliminating some of the older material and adding new processes now 4/5(1).

Modern construction methods involves proper planning and design to reduce construction time, cost and maintain overall sustainability of each project. A wide variety of modern methods of construction (MMC) techniques and products have been developed that have completely changed the behavior of construction industry from what it was before.

Their construction varied depending on the terrain and the local building materials that were available. For example, different solutions were required to build roads over marshy areas and steep ground. Nevertheless, there are certain standard rules that were followed.
