Overview

Roadwork Theory and Practice gives the essential information needed by every road worker, highway technician, incorporated, graduate or chartered engineer, not only by explaining the theory of road construction and its associated activities, but by illustrating its application with practical working methods that are in use in everyday engineering practice. As such, it successfully bridges the gap so often found between civil engineering theory and the day-to-day work of a highways engineer.

Now in its fifth edition, this classic textbook has been fully revised in line with recent changes to EU standards, legislation, terminology and specifications. The new edition now includes end of chapter review questions and references for further reading.

Students will find this text fully caters for the requirements of BTEC National and NVQ qualifications in construction, civil engineering and highways maintenance. In addition, content has been matched to the specifications of the new Higher Nationals in Civil Engineering from Edexcel. Professionals will find the new edition to be an invaluable up-to-date reference source, especially of relevance to recent graduates new to the work place.
