Sustainable highways: a short guide

9780115529825: Sustainable highways: a short guide

Local authorities are responsible for some 98 per cent of the road network in England and Wales as well as similar amounts in Scotland and Northern Ireland. This includes a very wide range of roads; from heavily trafficked principal roads to very lightly trafficked rural lanes and suburban estate roads. Highway maintenance and new construction has a massive part to play in the sustainability debate. By focusing on recycling arising from the existing road, using imported, recycled or secondary aggregates where appropriate, and choosing techniques that minimise the production of greenhouse gases, local authorities and highway engineers can work positively with the environment and have a major impact on sustainability targets. This informative guide provides helpful advice for local authority highway and material engineers on the choice of sustainable materials and techniques for use in highway and footway maintenance as well as new construction.
