Road Maintenance:

Even after taking all precautions road would need repairs due to other unexpected reasons. Wherever roads are constructed violating engineering norms first rain may make condition so bad that it would be impossible to recognise road. See all about roads here.
Virtually one may have to find road patches among potholes. Such a condition of road shall virtually stop traffic create traffic jams and increase avoidable accidents and unrest among citizens. In order to get over

How JPC should be Appointed.

Parliament is supposed to be a house of people's representatives. Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) is supposed to be the highest investigating body. However in practice members of committee are not people's representatives. All of them represent their party and not the people who elected them.

Top Layer:

Top layer has two basic functions. Firstly provide waterproofing for road and secondly provide adequately smooth surface for the least surface friction. Usually, PCC/RCC roads do not require this layer.

Middle Layer {Water Bound Macadm (WBM)}:

Middle layer is again with graded stone aggregate but of smaller size usually 40 mm. Thickness of this layer depends on density and speed of traffic.

Foundation Layer of Road:

Good quality crushed coarse stone metal aggregate is good to lay foundation of road. Size of the aggregate and thickness of layer depends of the traffic density and speed.

Constructing Formation for Road:

Testing of clay available at site would tell whether cutting is necessary and to the extent it is necessary. Even if clay at site is bad cutting need not be very deep.

Survey and Testing:

Survey for road or for existing road is a must. It is already brought out that water is the worst enemy of road after construction. Survey would make the engineer know filling and cutting needed at every spot so water won't accumulate on the road.

Road construction:

There is a definite engineering for road construction. If engineering rules are implemented in construction and repairs the road would serve for a long time. This long time may be over 10 years or even 50 years.

All architecture and engineering of Road for knowledge of common Man

Summary of Road Architecture:

Road is basically needed for smooth, reasonably fast and secure movement of traffic. In addition there are side uses of road. Many times side use gets importance and priority.

Road Crossings:

Safe road crossing is desired by all and it is not a big demand. Pedestrians as well as vehicles must have safe places for road crossings. In respect of BRT and Metro Train it is must to ensure speed and safety.

Storm water drainage:

Storm water drain gets attention only when rainwater guesses inside building. Almost every part of the road is generally neglected but the most neglected part is storm water drainage,

Space for Trees, Sellers, Public Amenities Etc.

There is a need to find space for requirements like footpath sellers, trees, the god, public amenities etc. If this is not done no law or police can keep footpath free of encroachment.

Footpath for pedestrians:

Lavish Side Walk
Minimum Side Walk
Pedestrians get first priority on road. This is a worldwide accepted principle. However, in Bharat costliest car gets the first priority. It appears first claim for footpath goes from building owners to the god.
