CHAPTER 3 ROAD DESIGN

In the planning stage Chapter 2 basic questions such as road uses traffic volume requirements and road standards have been decided The road standard selected in the planning stage defines the required travel width of the road surface The road design process uses the travel width as a departure point from which the necessary subgrade width is derived The road
