One of the most important factors determining environmental quality in both urban and residential areas is the design of roads in their relationship to their surroundings. The author, civil engineer and landscape architect, combines close attention to
aesthetic and urban values with effective engineering solutions.
Lavishly illustrated, the book familiarizes architects, planners, developers, civil engineers and local authorities with the essentials of road engineering while making engineers aware of the environmental context within which roads must be planned and built if they are to succeed with the people who will use them and live alongside them.
This revised edition is most timely and includes a new chapter on major urban and rural roads
Addresses the subject of traffic calming
