Highway and Traffic Engineering in Developing Countries edited by Bent
Thagesen (Technical University of Denmark) is published by  E & FN Spon , an imprint of Chapman &
The main purpose of this book is to meet a pronounced need for a
textbook on planning, design, construction, maintenance and management of roads
and traffic in the traditional developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin
America. Most of these countries, which do not include the former Eastern Bloc
countries, are situated in the tropics, where the natural conditions are
different from related conditions in temperate regions. Also, the institutional
issues and the financial problems confronting countries in the ‘South’ are
usually different from the state of affairs in the ‘North’. However, most
existing textbooks on highway engineering are geographically biased and based
on experience from industrialized countries with temperate climates, or they
deal with specific problems, for instance, soil stabilization or road building
in the tropics.  
The aim of this book is to give a comprehensive account of the wide
range of both technical and non-technical problems that may confront road
engineers working in the Third World without giving a detailed coverage of methods
and techniques. The book is designed primarily as a fundamental text for civil
engineering students, but an additional objective is to offer a broader view of
the subject for practising engineers.
The text has been written with the assistance of a number of
professionals with many years of experience gained in Africa, the Middle East,
Asia and Central America. The names of the writers of the different chapters
appear in the list of contributors, in the table of contents and under the
headings of the chapters.
The book does not purport to address the safety problems associated with
testing of road materials and construction and maintenance of roads. Readers
are expected to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine
applicability of national regulatory limitations prior to use of any method
described in the book.
