Book Description

August 3, 2009 0415472652 978-0415472654 4

This fully revised fourth edition of Max Lay’s well-established reference work covers all aspects of the technology of roads and road transport, and urban and rural road technology. It forms a comprehensive but accessible reference for all professionals and students interested in roads, road transport and the wide range of disciplines involved with roads.

International in scope, it begins with the preliminary construction procedures; from road planning policies and design considerations to the selection of materials and the building of roads and bridges. It then explores road operating environments that include driver behaviour, traffic flow, lighting and maintenance, and assesses the cost, economics, transport implications and environmental impact of road use.

It draws on Max Lay’s unparalleled consulting and operational experience in the financing, planning, design, construction, operation and management of roads in various countries. It forms an indispensable resource for transport planning, engineering, operations and economics.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Widely considered to be the single most comprehensive and informative road technology reference text."

- Highway Engineering in Australia

 

"A fully revised edition..."

- Transport and Road Update

 

"This handbook has its origins in Max Lay’s work over many decades in Australia, but reflects a breadth of knowledge far beyond that continent. In that sense it is perhaps the most international in its coverage of practice of such works."

- Mike Chrimes, Librarian, Institution of Civil Engineers, MyICE newsletter
