How do you build a road?
« on: 07/12/2008 06:42:26 »
I would like to build a road, very cheaply, I was wondering if the scientists here could offer any advice on the best and cheepest way to do it?

It may pass through a rice field, and should be able to take the weight of a lorry. Any suggestions?

P.S As simple as possible.

Any road which is to carry the weight of HGV's will need a good foundation, especially if it is to pass through arable land, otherwise subsidence will very soon cause the surface to break up and your road will be impassable.

You could consider using some sort of linked pontoon sectioned road.

I am very much going to enjoy building this road, then rebuilding it and then probably rebuilding it again.

There maybe.
